Blockhouse Trading Company
Blockhouse Trading Company has been owned by Peter for over 30 years. The original building, from a century ago, was a quarter of the size it is today. The lower level of the other half of the building was originally attached to the Games store across the street, and was a Post Office. Our counter in our shop comes from there, as do the built in shelves. The second level was built later under ownership of the Ernst family.
Both the previous owners of the store and Peter were avid collectors of history, information, and eclectic items. This, along with our appreciation of vintage design and quality, led to the concept of a display of local history to complement the vintage themed store.
Additionally, we value our community and want to help support local charities. Locals can cosign, sell, or donate vintage items to us. We also aim to help counsel local seniors and their families with preparations for downsizing and navigating the difficult process.
We hope the community shares their stories of local characters and events and adds these to our historical exhibit or online forum.
Specially chosen charities benefit from our annual donations which are based on the total sales of consignments items.
