August Antiques is a unique family business in the Historic Houston Heights offering many unusual finds from the New England states as well as upstate and western New York.
We started in 1993 with just one room of what now fills the entire first floor of a 1920’s residential/commercial style red brick building which we believe to have been built as a grocery store. Within a year, we needed more room and expanded to the 1910’s corner building which was once Heights Gulf Service station.
Originally, we started selling primitives and Victorian furniture from early New England estates. Now, our inventory is very diverse, including: Victorian, Mission, Empire, and primitive furniture, old and rare books, religious statuary and artifacts, period lighting, art pottery, vintage radios, fans from the 1910’s-1950’s, mid-century modern furnishings and way cool lamps, architectural salvage, etc.
There is always something to interest almost anybody. When you come in remember that all of our lighting is ready to hang, our radios all work, and our fans are rewired and ready to use. We also restore and rewire fixtures, radios, and fans. Please stop in and see what new finds we have just brought in from our buying trip.
