King Richard's Antique Center is an old orange packing site from the early 1900's. For over 30 years, this four story, 57,000 square foot antique store has over 300 vendors selling decades of chairs, desks, mirrors, china cabinets, kitchen, bedroom items, jewelry, lighting, clothing, toys, and so much more! We only had about an hour to browse but we could have spent an entire afternoon exploring the huge store.
The boys were most excited to interact with the "technology" of times passed. The knobs of old radios, the buttons of past cash registers, keys of typewriters, and the dials of rotary phones were things they were very curious about. Hubby and I shared stories of times when we used televisions with remotes with only three buttons, having to call the operator when making phone calls, and the frustration of lining up typewriter correction tape.
It was most fun watching DJ play an early 1900 player piano that he's seen in the movies.
