Barnesville Antique Mall to celebrate 25 years in business
BARNESVILLE — A family owned and operated antique shop that sells a little bit of everything will celebrate its 25th anniversary in September.
The Barnesville Antique Mall contains three stories of a vast assortment of items available for purchase. Brian Mayhugh, co-owner of the store, said it offers a diverse range of fine antiques, collectibles, glassware, primitives, furniture, records, sports cards, jewelry, toys and more.
He added that all the items are marked at affordable prices.
“We try to have something for everyone,” he said. “We’re not the typical antique store, because we also carry DVDs, CDs, records, video games, all of that. They’re so popular right now and we sell them for cheap.”
Mayhugh co-owns the store with his mother, Nancy Mayhugh. They started the business along with his father, Roger, in 1996. Although Roger died in 2004, the mother and son duo kept the business going.
In the years since, Mayhugh’s wife, Cindy, and their two children, 20-year-old Maddy and 14-year-old Hayley, have joined the family business, helping out wherever they can.
Mayhugh said some of the shop’s biggest sellers are record players and vinyls. He said it has a vast selection of records of all types of music.
“We pretty much have A to Z of those. We have them all separated so they’re easier to go through — the rock is here, the country and everything else is over there,” he said.
The shop not only sells items but also purchases certain items including records, gold, silver, toys and crocks. Mayhugh said the “want list” changes periodically, so he encourages those interested in selling to check the store’s Facebook page where updated lists are posted weekly.
To celebrate the shop’s 25th year in business, Mayhugh said they will offer special deals during the entire month of September. He said they have not decided what exactly they will do but he urges people to “stay tuned.” He said they will provide updates in the coming months on their social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram.
Mayhugh said people always ask him about how he has managed to remain open for all these years. He said he attributes the shop’s success to their honesty, integrity and fair prices. He added that they have a great group of dealers who work really hard.
The store is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday at 202 N. Chestnut St. in Barnesville.
