Antiques On Mainstreet - Downtown Hopkins, MN
Antiques On Mainstreet, located in the heart of historic downtown Hopkins, Minnesota, is a 2-level mall of 50 dealers offering an eclectic mix of antique, vintage, and collectible treasures in 7,000 square feet. It is one of five malls within three blocks (between 9th and 12th Avenues) making Hopkins a destination for antiques shopping.
Hal and Nancy Miller are the owners of Antiques On Mainstreet, but their story began in 2005 with the opening of Antiques At Shady Oak, also in Hopkins, but on the west end of town. That mall began with 18 dealers and expanded over four years to 50. In May of 2009 a fire in a neighboring business forced the closing of the mall. Though the flames were contained within the neighbor’s store, smoke and water took its toll.
On July 1st 2010, fourteen months after that terrible day in May, Antiques On Mainstreet opened its doors at 913 Mainstreet in the Hopkins historic downtown area. Loyal Shady Oak dealers had worked tirelessly for weeks, cleaning and painting and readying the new store. They filled their booths and cases with a wide variety of merchandise, excited to make a fresh start.
Their hopes and dreams were reallized when, in 2011 and then again just recently in 2014, Antiques On Mainstreet received the Sun Newspapers Readers’ Choice Award for Hopkins’ Best Antiques Store.
And now, four years later, a 4th anniversary celebration/sale is being planned. The 3-day event will take place Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, August 8th, 9th and 10th.
Antiques On Mainstreet is open 7 days a week,
Monday through Saturday from 10am to 6pm
Sunday from Noon to 5pm
