BAHOUKAS’ collections are situated in a circa 1880 historic building in Havre de Grace’s Main Street District with almost 9,000 square feet of retail space! Havre de Grace MD is on the edge of Harford County, just across the river from Cecil County, and a short drive from Baltimore County, Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Many of our customers take exit 89 to visit us while traveling north or south on Interstate 95 between Virginia, D.C. and New York. Make BAHOUKAS your regular stop while traveling!!
In November of 2013 BAHOUKAS expanded to include a second store across the street BAHOUKAS GreenJoy, located at 467 Franklin Street. This boutique style shop featured an eclectic blend of antiques, vintage and eco-friendly products. As of November 1, 2015, the GreenJoy merchandise returns to the original BAHOUKAS Antique Mall location. The former BAHOUKAS GreenJoy space is home to JoRetro – a fabulous store with a mid-century modern focus. On the second floor of JoRetro is “The Meeting Place” – Havre de Grace’s newest venue for classes, meetings and workshops, available for rent at reasonable rates!
Havre de Grace is located where the Susquehanna River meets the Chesapeake Bay. A drive into our historic downtown is like traveling through a time machine with many turn of the century buildings looking much like they did “back in the day”. Much of Havre de Grace was burned during the war of 1812, but a few of the pre 1812 buildings survived the British attack and are still existing today.

How did this BAHOUKAS empire happen? A little history…
First came BAHOUKAS Collectibles… opened in 1996. George Wagner started in the small shop at 465 Franklin Street, with only 200 square feet of retail space. Four years later, in 2000, he moved his store ‘next door’ to the corner space at 467 Franklin Street, and expanded his empire to a 1200 square foot space. Fast forward another four years to 2004, George purchased the building. BAHOUKAS has always been full to the rafters (if you could find the rafters) with collectables of all sorts.
Next the …. BrewMania Museum Opens
In 2007, after acquiring some unique collections of beer and alcohol related memorabilia, George remodeled and opened a 2nd floor room to house his BrewMania Beer MuZeum.
Then came the New ANTIQUE MALL
Sept/Oct. 2008: Bahoukas outgrew the original store, so George and Barbara purchased the building across the street (the former Pitcocks Hardware Store) and opened Bahoukas Antique Mall. The new store boasts almost 9,000 square feet of retail space, and their collections include items from 5 other dealers. George also moved the BrewMania MuZeum from the Franklin Street location to the roomy 2nd floor of the Antique Mall. This “Man Cave” area also has an extensive NASCAR section and a sports memorabilia area. Something for everyone!! You must see to believe!!
