Big Daddy's Antiques Trouvais

Big Daddy’s Antiques

Shane Brown of Big Daddy’s Antiques has been selling unique finds sourced

from travels across the US, Europe and Asia, from his enormous Los Angeles

warehouse, as well as various flea markets including our incredible Northern

California Antiques By The Bay flea market in Alameda here for over 18 years.

His website here is a catalog of one of a kind curiosities, as well as trend starting

objects, and reliable favorites. And he has just done us an enormous favor in

opening up a second huge warehouse in San Francisco …

I’ve seen these made into table lamps…

or filled with collected corks…

c. 1884…a good year?

Amid all the rough industrial…

a Swedish secretary, alabaster urns with iron bouquets,

a vintage crocodile purse, an iron scrolled bed…
