We are so glad that you stopped by!
We are a small business that has an appreciation for the craftsmanship and quality of vintage wood furniture. A WHILE AGO ANTIQUES was launched in 1990 for the purpose of restoring beautiful vintage pieces back to their original form and function. We have a passion for older quality furniture; especially, (you guessed it). . .rocking chairs! Remember, an antique rocker is always a warm addition to almost any room of the house!
All of the furniture that you see on this website has been completely disassembled and restored to "near original" condition yet being sensitive of it's antique value. Our chosen material in the upholstery of the chairs and rockers is either fine tapestry or leather; mindful of what is most appropriate to the era of the chair. Each piece has been carefully and meticulously restored by hand where our only concern is the quality finished product. It truly gives us a sense of satisfaction to deliver quality and service to our customers as well as creating a challenge for us!
We are constantly in the process of restoration and have many more to choose from other than what you see in the galleries of this website. Please inquire if you have any questions. We may be reached by email: [email protected] (see form) or by phone: 715-598-6633.
Our merchandise is featured at various antique shows throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa; possibly, we may have had the opportunity to meet you personally at one of these shows.
We sincerely hope that you have enjoyed visiting our website as much as we have enjoyed providing it for you!
