We’ll Be Open this Presidents’ Day Weekend!

If it’s Presidents’ Day Weekend, that means Mystery Spot Antiques in beautiful Phoenicia, NY in the heart of the Catskill Mountains will open its doors for the weekend.

We’ve been super busy this winter buying carloads of estate items, sorting, cleaning and bringing them in. Because we’ve been hibernating, no one has seen them yet! THIS IS THE WEEKEND.

Vintage clothing (winter coats, 60’s leather jackets, wool plaid skirts and trousers, cocktail dresses, vintage t-shirts, fedoras, and denim), vintage purses, vinyl records, antiques, Rusticalia, old books, ephemera, vintage kitchenware…seven rooms packed to the rafters. Each and every item is individually selected by us, in compliance with our rigorous set of aesthetic standards. And there will be more coming in every day this holiday weekend!

Presidents’ Weekend hours:
Saturday Feb. 17th (11 – 6)
Sunday  Feb. 18th  (11 – 5)
Monday Feb. 19th (11 – 4)

If you miss us this weekend, fear not! This spring (our 17th season in Phoenicia) we’ll soon be open every weekend (and most holidays) starting sometime in April, then five days a week all summer, then fall weekends, maybe with some Mondays thrown in, etc.

Which means (CUE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT) we’re looking for someone very special and super reliable to join the Mystery Spot team. We’re interviewing candidates for a very responsible shop position that starts in April. If you know of the perfect person for this part-time but consistent gig (reliable, experienced, friendly, creative, trustworthy, organized, and vintage-loving; post-college age or older please), they may email us with a resume and/or some relevant info about themselves. Preferably someone who’s been here and understands what we’re about. Serious inquiries only.

*(If the weather looks iffy, please send us an email or call to confirm we’re open).
