Although this antique and furnishing store may seem initially like an expanded version of your grandmother’s attic, treasures are plentiful underneath the dust. Reserve a little time and patience for this one-of-a-kind shop, and you’ll be hunting and finding jewels in no time. Most of the items in Qucumberz are arranged in no particular order, but there is a back room dedicated entirely to old doors and windows, so if you are revamping an older rental, this may be the perfect place for you to start. If the clutter intimidates you, ask one of the staff members, who can help you sort through the controlled chaos to find exactly what you’re looking for. Some of the most popular items sold at the store are the antique lamps, clocks and tables. Qcumberz also features some furnishings from local artists.
