Antiques and collectibles
Marlene S. Coil has been in business for more than 30 years, gathering, displaying, and selling antiques, collectibles, gifts, and all sorts of interesting odds and ends. Her new shop in Troy has expanded, and she urges people to stop by and take a look at her impressive collection and beautiful displays.
Ms. Coil accidentally ended up with some pieces of Depression glass when she was just 15. That acquisition piqued her interest in antiques and collectibles, and she became a collector herself. Among other things, her shop carries one-of-a-kind items — things that are no longer made — but remain both beautiful and useful.
The store is a great place to shop for that unusual, lovely gift for a birthday, anniversary, or holiday. Ms. Coil offers free gift-wrapping, a bridal registry, and friendly helpful service. She loves her wares and believes her customers will too.
A Time to Remember also helps to identify and value antiques and other items you may have, as well as locate items you may want.
Ms. Coil has a particularly large selection of glassware — Fenton, Depression, Cambridge, Fastorian, Heisey, and more. She carries Hummel, Goebels, and Royal Daulton figurines, as well as Tobies, jewelry, puzzles, dolls, kitchenware, salt and pepper shakers, Beanie Babies, and much more.
The selection is terrific, and prices are low. Check out A Time to Remember the next time you’re looking for that special gift, or just want to spend a lovely time browsing through lovely things.

Antiques and Emporium, on the
South Wheelock Road in
Lyndonville, is always buying and selling antiques, collectibles, quality used furniture, and gold and silver.
It’s been in business for 12 years, and owners Paul and Lucy Steele say they will pay the highest prices
for your valuables. Mr. Steele started dealing parttime and selling at flea markets back in the 1970s. A love of antiques led him to consign at antique group shops throughout Vermont and New Hampshire. The next step involved auctions, and for six years he
ran an auction service. Eventually, he concluded that he’d like to run his own antique shop, and opened Antiques and Emporium in Lyndonville in a rented facility in 2000. The business has since moved to the former Corner Medical building, originally the Lyndon Corner School, built in 1872. It was damaged by fire in 2002, but Mr. Steele has completely restored it to house his thriving business. The new location was ready for customers in 2005.
Antiques and Emporium is a group shop with motivated dealers, a
huge variety, and low prices. Stop by and check out their wares; you’re
sure to run across a treasure or two, or simply find a practical and much-needed item at a fair price.
