Welcome Y'all!

Stepping Into For Old Times Sake Antiques is a Step Back in Time.

It’s one of the most unique, locally-owned antique shops on the East Coast with nearly 4,000 square feet of inventory and multiple dealers and consigners.

Nestled in the heart of historic downtown Wake Forest, the 1920s building has its original creaky floors, squeaky doors and a white tin ceiling.

Golden-age music plays while shoppers meander through the two floors of rare, authentic antique and vintage merchandise. Customers will find antiques, vintage items, furniture, collectibles, primitives, home décor and so much more.

Husband and wife Phil and Laura Cashwell opened the store in 2009. During their 30+ years of marriage, they’ve enjoyed antiquing together and turned their passion into a business.  They invite you to stop in to browse For Old Times Sake Antiques’ award-winning, ever-changing array of vintage pieces, antiques and what-nots!
