Property Description

Change Your Life.

Own a 3 story brick building and an antiques business. The Collection, one of the top 3 antique dealers in the Finger Lakes region.  The sale includes the turn-key business, all inventory, large reference library, equipment and the quaint, post Civil War 3-story brick building. The upper floors of the building have two stunning NYC loft-style apartments.

Antiques business has $100,000+/yr potential income. The complete antiques inventory is being sold at cost for $160,000. Total Asking Price: $295,000 (bldg) + $160,000 (antiques business) = $455,000 

The Building: It is a beautiful, solid, well maintained building with exposed brick walls. Three floors...each floor is 1400 sq. ft. High 13' ceilings, large windows, lots of light. Each floor is open and airy. (There is good workspace in the basement which could be used for restoration work.) The main floor is the home for owner-occupied antiques business. The 2nd and 3rd floors are unique, highly unusual loft apartments. The two apartments feature exposed brick walls, high ceilings, large windows, wood floors. Current tenants pay all their own utilities including water...on month-to-month lease agreements, allowing flexibility for the buyer.

Business and Inventory: The Collection is the oldest antiques business in Tompkins County and has a national reputation for early antiques. There are no reproductions. It is a real selection of 18th and 19th century items: country and formal furniture, early pewter, copper, brass, iron, samplers, quilts, woodenware, pottery, primitives, folk art and more. The inventory includes rare, hard to find pieces as well as many lovely affordable items.  Everything is guaranteed. The entire stock is well organized, completely documented.

The successful business is based on a three-pronged approach: retail, antique shows and the internet. If needed, the owner and founder of the business is willing to stay on as a mentor, at no charge. You will be able to take over, knowing you will have the time to acquire the knowledge you need. This is a rare opportunity. Ideal for someone who is looking for a change, something new. You will travel, meet interesting people...AND you will have the thrill of finding treasure! You will fall in love with the quest -- the finds, the treasures -- and the joy of selling it. If you have a love of history and beautiful things from the past, this may be for you. In addition to the retail business, antique shows are fun and profitable. You can do two a year or two a month. You can also expand the business online and/or diversify with repairs and restoration. The owner will educate you in every aspect of the business.

The Location: The Collection is located on Main Street in the lively Village of Trumansburg in the heart of the Finger Lakes area of upstate NY. This is a major tourist destination...Close to Ithaca, Cornell University and many beautiful  area attractions including Taughannock Falls, the Seneca and Cayuga Lake Wine Trails.
