From Holiday Decor to artwork/prints, wonderful wall items like the huge, folding fan or 3′ round wall art are just a few of the unique items you’ll find throughout the shop. When we say you need to spend some time browsing, looking UP and DOWN, we aren’t joking.
Quick example, a customer asked if he could take pictures of the PEZ collection to send to a friend. I responded, “Of course, but don’t forget to look up!” He looked up and said, “Oh my… I didn’t even see all those!” He was looking up at a shelf of PEZ at least 12′ long and probably 8′ up!
Unique Maple Drawer and Shelf
This perfectly-sized, small maple chest of drawers with a shelf unit is often missed. Well-made and beautiful, it would make perfect storage for a young child, whether it be clothes or toys.
At 23″ high – 29″ wide – 13″ deep, the 6 drawers and the shelf section would also be perfect for a crafter. If you’re a DIY lover, you could even put casters on the bottom so that you could move it.
We encourage you to stop into Bahoukas Antiques and Beer MuZeum soon. And give yourself enough time to look UP and look DOWN. The ‘Collector of Collections’ truly does have something for nearly everyone! And you know, we’ll be watchin’ for ya!

As George moved things around to make room for the 5 – yes 5! – truckloads of dolls that needed sorting and displayed throughout the store for Thanksgiving weekend, this wonderful collection of Star Wars Miniatures w/Stat Cards was discovered. We meticulously went through them to match cards with figures and now have a large box with scores of these minis in excellent condition.
Or, a beer charcuterie board. Made of solid American Oak, this includes 6-12 oz beer glasses, a board with an area for your cheeses and other delicious munchies, and a recessed area to slide the glasses into securely. It also has antique English handles. It would make a beautiful gift. Add a gift certificate to one of our breweries and, well, someone who loves beer would be delighted to receive this!

We recently received a box of DC Star Trek Comics and a few other books/magazines with Star Trek articles. They are in good to great condition. Here’s an interesting article about the series created in the late 1980s:
There are many benefits to playing with dolls. These benefits include encouraging imagination, developing motor skills, fostering a sense of caring, boosting independence, teaching empathy, helping with social development, encouraging communication, providing a sense of belonging, creating opportunities for pretend play, and helping children deal with emotions. So if you’re looking for a toy that will promote your child’s development in multiple ways, consider investing in a doll. They will thank you later in life.
Considering the many changes that have occurred since the pandemic, possibly a doll might be a perfect gift this year. Let’s encourage more child’s play and a little less screen time. Think of the benefits!
Dolls, of course, or great collectibles. You probably know someone who has a beautiful collection. And don’t forget that dolls can bring comfort to someone in a nursing home, especially those dealing with dementia.

Like many radio stations, there’s a long history of changes. But these prints, we think, are from the 70s when WCBM was known for its contemporary music programming. After researching the artist, we realize how very valuable these illustrations are. Enjoy our research!

Did You Know About Franklin? (the possible state)
Crockett was born on August 17, 1786, in what is now eastern Tennessee. At the time, however, many of the region’s residents considered themselves citizens of the so-called state of Franklin, a breakaway territory that had declared its independence from North Carolina two years earlier.
When the rainy days arrive, it allows for some indoor clean-up. Do you collect bottles? Well then, you’ll want to see our newly arranged bottle display at the back of the shop.

We have a wonderful selection of banks available in the shop. These are just a few of the latest!
Make Saving FUN!
“Without a working knowledge of money, it is extraordinarily difficult to do well in life,” says Sam X Renick, co-creator of Sammy Rabbit, a children’s character and financial literacy initiative. “Money is central to transacting life, day-in and day-out. Where we live, what we eat, the clothes we wear, the car we drive, health care, education, child-rearing, gift giving, vacations, entertainment, heat, air-conditioning, insurance—you name it, money is involved.”
A piggy bank can be a great way to teach your kids the importance of saving, while giving them an easy way to do it. Tell your kids that the goal is to fill up the piggy bank with dollars and coins, until there is no room.
We LOVE this unique Coca-Cola Bears bank. Don’t forget that once they fill up their bank, they can learn to open a bank account. A great beginning for financially savvy young adults in the near future. Such a fun way to get started.
So stop in today and pick out one of these great banks. We have others, too. But hurry, some of these will go quickly. And yessiree, we’re here and we’re watchin’ for ya!
