Our History

About the Owner, Fran McClendon:fran


Still living a vibrant life that makes a difference, Fran has become quite a legend and deserves to be recognized for her courageous achievements.

Trail Blazer that she was, Fran McClendon served a total of 26 years in the Military during World War 2, Korea and Vietnam, achieving the rank of Major.

As a young Black woman she pioneered the path for others to follow, always the perfect example of Love and Respect for all to see and admire.

Completing that phase of her life, she married her true love and together they moved to Phoenix, AZ to embark on a career of Antiquing and hunting treasures from the past that they valued so much.

Determined as she was and still is today, Fran became an Entrepreneur in the World of Antiques and Vintage Collectibles of all kinds.

If you do the math, most people would have retired many years ago. Fran considered for a brief moment about liquidating her life’s work, but that was only for a moment – Instead she moved to a New Expanded Location in Downtown Mesa!

Her beautiful store is neatly decorated with everything from retro furniture and home décor to vintage records and postcards, to fine glassware, lamps, dolls and so much more!  Her tables are set with Fine China and Vintage Linens… A trip back in time from the late 1800’s to the 1950’s.

Fran is loved by many and continues to inspire people as a Historian and Educator. Many of her loyal customers spend time with her and encourage her to write an autobiography of her life for others to also share and enjoy!
