BIZNOTE: Here’s when Antique Mall of West Seattle will ‘soft (re)open’

One week ago, we reported that the Antique Mall of West Seattle (4516 California SW) will finally reopen. We asked for more details and now have their plan for a “soft (re)open” by appointment:

March marked two years of closure, save for our spring and summer sidewalk sales on Sundays when many Farmers’ Market patrons stopped by for a limited peek at our immense inventory. We have been truly motivated and inspired by the many people who asked when they’d be allowed inside…

We are thrilled to announce that preceding our official Grand Reopening (date TBD soon), we will have a soft opening beginning this weekend! On Saturday, April 9th through Monday, April 11th, we are offering one hour time-slots for folks to come in and enjoy an iconic Junction jewel once again, or for the very first time!

Items can be admired and purchased — accepting cash & cards — and we hope that the hundreds of people who have begged for an opening date will come by to see what we’ve curated on three incredible floors of countless treasures.

Time-slots can be be made via the following link:

The Antique Mall is grateful to have such an enthusiastic, persistent community to fuel our efforts to re-open. We hope you will share our initial offering with West Seattle, and we look forward to seeing everyone soon.

    After being shut down for over 2 years, I was excited to go check out the Antique Mall (after going there many years ago). I signed up for the ‘soft opening’ and went today. I’m very happy that they survived covid- But with that being said; the prices of the vast majority of items seemed to be heavily inflated, if not over-valued. I was there shopping for potential gifts for friends and family; and it would’ve been cheaper to buy off eBay AND pay shipping (at least for the items that I was interested in/looked up). I was poking around the shop for about an hour, and from what I observed, some people bought an item or two, many bought nothing at all. I hope they survive; especially given the numerous junction business that have shut down in the past year. But sadly I doubt they will with the current pricing mindset.

    Very true comments about the pricing. Much higher than the same products, with shipping, on online marketplaces. Unless an item is so rare that it can’t be found online, then I can’t see someone paying the prices at this mall. And yes, the vendors set their prices, but it seemed like the vast majority were all from the same vendor #52. The other issue was the whistling guy, which was a bit ear piercing and irritating. I wanted to leave a couple times just because of that, but stayed because I really wanted to see what was available in the large space.

Sorry, comment time is over.
