Fairfield County’s best-kept secret may be found in a little town known as Amanda, Ohio – and it is known as the Amanda Furniture, Antique, Craft Mall and Auction House.
Filled with unique crafts, beautiful antiques and a variety of treasures hidden throughout the whole building.
Ernie Weaver, the owner of the Amanda Furniture, Antique, Craft Mall and Auction House, was able to share a little bit about the business: “We’re just unique and different, we have to be unique and different to be out here. You’ll never know what you’ll find here.”
The building that they’re currently set up in was once a furniture store and always has been since the ’50s, but what drew them to this building, you might ask? Well, their original plan was to find a building for an auction house – and the rest fell into place!
“I was looking for an auction house, this building happened to be for sale and I purchased it. I know my wife and daughter always traveled a little bit to go to those antique and crafts malls, and it was such a big building that I didn’t know what to do with all of it – so my wife and daughter said: ‘Hey, why don’t you keep the furniture and have an antique and craft mall?’ That’s where it started.” Ernie explained about the stores’ history – of which they’ve been opened for eight years now.
The biggest thing they want you to know is that you should come, visit them and see what they have to offer.
“We’re just a little different from the rest. You’ll never know what you’ll find here, and it changes frequently,” he spoke in regard to the vendors and what they have to offer, which is always changing on a regular base.
