SUMMER HOURS CHANGE: we’re open five days a week all summer-long, i.e. Thursday through Monday (open every day except Tuesday and Wednesday). We’ve been buying a TON of estate items all summer long – seriously, crazy amounts! – so expect estate-fresh antiques, vintage and vinyl coming in every week!

April 26th, 2016
Starting this weekend (April 30/May 1) The Mystery Spot is open for the season! And it’s not just any season – it’s our fifteenth!
For now, we’ll be open weekends only until school lets out; after that, we’ll be open five days a week, all summer long.
Our “official” opening is Memorial Day Weekend, but if you’re one of our followers who reads these things, consider these next few weekends our “sneak previews” for those in the know.
We’ve been hoarding vintage nuts and acorns all winter-long, and we have SO MUCH to bring in….stacks of vinyl records, racks of vintage clothing, antiques, books (including lots of local history, i.e. Delaware County, one county over), Catskills ephemera, mid-century kitchenware, Rusticalia, oddities, vintage costume jewelry, and even Prada shoes (huh?).
Saturday 11am – 6pm
Sunday 11am – 5pm
Expect lots of surprises for Year 15!
April 2nd, 2016
We’ve been gathering vintage nuts all winter!
We’re chomping at the bit to officially open for the season, which will be sometime in May. But in the meantime…..
CATCH US THIS WEEKEND! Sat. April 9th & Sun. April 10th! We will actually be open (!) for a vintage quickie until we “officially” open later this spring.
Is it because the Woodstock Writers’ Festival is also that weekend? Hmmm….could be! In fact, they’re raffling off an original photo that we – i.e. your proprietress Laura Levine – took of David Bowie
(there may be a few raffle tickets left). Raffle tickets sold out! But you can always contact us if you don’t win the raffle and you’d like to purchase a print directly.
We’ve been gathering lots of fresh Catskills estate finds (many of you have seen them posted on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter) and bringing them in bit by bit. Vintage hippie clothing, vinyl records, antique bottles, old paintings, cool and obscure Delaware County local history books, vintage and antique….um…stuff. Just the tip of the iceberg, but you’ll get first crack at them if you head over to Phoenicia and pop in next weekend.
Then we’re going to hibernate a little more until our official opening April 30th! (Weekends only for the time being).
Did we mention that this will be our FIFTEENTH SEASON in Phoenicia!?
—> Extra Incentive: The Ice Cream Station next door to us on the porch will also be open!

Don’t worry, we’re just hibernating for the winter season. Please check back (or sign up for our mailing list on the sidebar) as we may open for a random holiday weekend or two over the winter before we officially re-open for our FIFTEENTH season this spring!
Thanks, everyone, for being the best customers, ever! See you in the spring! (If not before).

Our Last Blast Summer Weekend ends on Labor Day! Get Your Vintage On While you Can!
Phoenicia’s Mystery Spot Antiques is celebrating one last blast of Catskills summer before we revert back to our Fall Hours.
This Labor Day weekend only, we’re open:
Thursday 11 – 4
Friday 11 – 5
Saturday 11 – 6
Sunday 11 – 5
Monday 11 – 4
and THEN…..we’re back to our Fall Hours, which are Friday, Saturday and Sunday only.
Our Adopt-A-Highway sign proudly stands tall on Route 28, right next to the Phoenicia Diner.
As usual, we’ve got lots of groovy vintage clothing, mid-century housewares and lighting, antiquarian books, killer vinyl and more continuing to come in all autumn long. If you’re into thrifting, crate digging, junking, treasure hunting, yard saling or just looking for an excuse to get out of the city (aka Brooklyn) and taking a beautiful drive (or bus ride, which takes you right to our door), come on up this weekend!
NOTE: We’ll probably close for the winter around Thanksgiving until next Spring, so come on down and “Shop the Spot” while you can!
