  • As one who visits many antique shops from state to state, this place is priced WAY too high on all items. With that said, that s place is still a great place to stop. It's PACKED with tons of stuff you'll not see anywhere else. And, if you see something you can't do without, buy it.
  • I love exploring thrift shops. Sanibel Island doesn't seem to have any thrift shops, but they did have this -- the Islander Trading Post Antiques. When you step inside, it is almost overwhelming how every nook and cranny is jammed full of old stuff (but good looking old stuff). It was very pricey -- I couldn't afford anything, including the small back room that has reproductions were pricey -- but it was a not of fun exploring and seeing so many cool old things, and having them bring back memories of my very young childhood. If I ever win the lottery, I will be back!
  • Very Rude! Tried to look online to see what something was and was told I'm not allowed to used the internet. He said EBay was a 4 letter word to him which would explain the $18 dollar price tag on a $2 item! Stay away!
  • Great place to stop and visit. So many items you could spend hours there looking at everything
  • Like others have said, the prices are higher than one might expect them to be, but the gentleman I spoke with behind the counter was willing to work with me on prices and was very kind. The place is packed - every shelf is completely full, but organized (he has Coke antiques in one spot, sport stuff in one section, other things grouped together are organized by state, etc.) so if you're looking for something specific, he probably has it or something very close/ similar. I would definitely check this place out for yourself even if you aren't a huge fan of unique finds. Definitely a go-to spot for me any time I'm in Florida.
