Owners, Philip Paulsen and Faith Watkins have worked many hours to make an exciting and different type of antique shopping experience. Visitors from 42 states and six countries have been welcomed into our store. They are all amazed at the layout and design of the store and say that it is the very best.

For those of you having difficulty with that hard-to-buy-for person, Gift certificates can make the perfect gift.

If you don’t see it in the store, there is a wish list available so that our we may be able to check our inventory to see if we may help you find what you need or want. In addition to our charming cottage store front, we have an additional 8,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space where we have quite an extensive inventory.

We also have available a wide variety of reclaimed building supplies for those who are preserving historical homes, buildings and businesses. Philip has spent the better part of 20 years in demolition of early buildings and has amassed a great deal of architectural items such as mantles, columns, railings, doors, windows, beams, flooring, fixtures, lumber, stone, nails, hardware,brick, and tin. This sideline has been dubbed by others as “The Rusty Roof & Nail”.

Philip incorporates these reclaimed items — most of which are a part of local history, into one-of-a-kind structures. You will be able to witness his creativity as you wander both floors of Remember When. This is architectural salvage at its very best!

We are in the process of making some new and exciting changes to our business that will make us more exciting and better than ever. Stop in and see us. We also would like to hear from you. Give us a call at (919) 693-3112 or contact our antique store online.
