Once again, the annual Street Fair is upon us! Don’t forget to stop in at Antiques On Broadway. Not only to beat the heat, but to see our great selection of rare antiques, fabulous vintage finds, and cool collectibles — inside and out. Along with our main sales floor and basement, we’ll be having a sidewalk sale outside too. So enjoy our extended hours and come see us at the 2014 Downtown Fargo Street Fair.
PS Don’t worry about how many items you buy or their size; we’ll gladly hold shop purchases in the shop until you are ready to pack it in for the day and head home!
Hello all. We will be having a sale this coming Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Most things throughout the store will be 20% off. If you’ve been waiting for a sale and eying something, this is the perfect opportunity to grab it. Things keep coming in and going out fast, so throughout 6-26-14 to 6-28-14 you better get them while you can because they might be gone the next time you stop in. There’s lots of records, cds, cassettes, pictures, books, comics, movies, primitive tools, jewelry, toys, sports memorabilia, furniture, pottery, glassware, and all kinds of cool knick knacks everywhere. Stop in and check it out.
6-21-14 and 6-22-14 we will be having train transformers 25% off. Stop by and check them out.

We even have a large selection of items under $10, so even the little kids can find a gift for dad. Stop in soon
These vintage advertising calendars hail from the days when companies didn’t have to worry about sexual harassment guidelines or otherwise weren’t concerned about offending women in the workplace (or what the wives at home might think). Back then, you could hang a pinup or even a nude photo on the company wall — today, we don’t even display this sort of thing on our shop walls. Instead, we keep them behind the counter. So if you are looking for vintage or antique risque items, stop in at the counter and ask to see these calenders (or any other mature pieces we might have for sale).
The one with the tastefully nude woman is compliments of Reams Cafe of Waterloo, Iowa. It’s dated 1960. There is some discoloration on the photo. (But the “white box” is an edit to remove any potential offense to our viewers.)
The one with the bikini-clad model is from Stone’s Auto Repair & Welding of Walcott, North Dakota. The calendar year is 1978.
Again, please stop by the store for more details and to see these vintage advertising calenders.
On Saturday, the 19th of April, it’s going to be record day. For that day only, we will be having a sale on most of the records throughout the entire store. Most records could be anywhere from 15% to 35% off. If there’s some records you’ve been looking at but haven’t bought yet, Saturday would be the best day to buy them.
Lots of fabulous new-but-old items are always arriving in the shop. Here are some great kitchen items, including vintage enamelware and a great wooden cupboard.
Some other primitive antiques from dealer EQ.
And who doesn’t love this antique beehive moonshine jug?!
Last, but not least, the always popular wooden trays for printers’ blocks.

Each year the High Plains Reader has it’s “Best of the Best” awards, covering the best bets in Fargo, Moorhead, and West Fargo — and Antiques On Broadway made the finals!
From the HPR itself:
The primary focus of categories relates to our niche: art, entertainment and nightlife. We have very little focus on corporate-type businesses or events. Instead, we hone in on who are the best artists and art spaces, the best bands and musicians, the best bars and venues, and other things like radio talk shows, celebrities, and, of course, our staple of food, restaurants and chefs.
Nominations will open Thursday, Feb. 20, and continue for three weeks. After that open nomination period, the contest re-opens March 12 with a handful of finalists listed for each of the 50 categories. Voting concludes April 1.
Award winners for 2014 will be kept secret until our Gathering of the Best Awards Celebration at the Plains Art Museum Wednesday night, April 16. A subsequent issue of the Reader will be a ‘keeper’ edition with focus on the many winners who indeed represent the best of the best here in the greater Fargo-Moorhead community.
We are super proud to be among the finalists for “Best Thrift / Antique Store” — dare we dream of being number one?!
If you haven’t voted already, you can (and should!) vote here, or vote on Facebook. (And if you vote for us, let us know on our Facebook page!)
