About the Shop

As antique dealers in the Utica – Rome area for four decades, we’ve  seen the trends come and go.  We are versed in many fields of interest.  Originally attracted to pottery, glass, china and stoneware, our eclectic inventory has evolved over time.  Don has a keen interest in early lighting and a love for hand colored photographs.  Jewelry and coins have always been of interest but recently the inventory of jewelry, both costume and fine jewelry, has swelled to take up about a quarter of our shop.  Linens, paper goods, records, sewing items, World’s Fair memorabilia, and toys are also found throughout.  You’ll also find fine  pieces of furniture with many other furniture items available upon request from our storage areas.

We also have a long history in estate liquidation.  Appraisals for one item or entire estates are available.  We’ve been conducting house and estate sales since 1972, and references are available upon request.  Let us help you to make it easier to settle your estates.  Our compassionate staff treats your items as their own and our experience allows us to get the best prices for your items.

We’re always buying quality antiques, gold, silver, jewelry, coins and complete estates.  Call us or stop in to see Don before you sell.  Every gold and silver buyer claims to pay the highest price and that no one can pay you more.  All we can tell you is that we pay an honest price for honest weight.  Those that shop price come back to us.  Give us try and you won’t be disappointed.

We are proud to announce that The Potting Shed Antiques was just voted as number one Antiques Shop in the Utica Observer Dispatch’s Reader’s Choice Awards again for 2018 making it the fifth time.  The category was added to the awards six years ago and we have won it every time it was included (not offered in 2017) in the contest.   We thank all our customers who voted for us.  It is an honor to serve you.  If you haven’t yet please stop in to see why others think we are number 1.
