About Us

Welcome to Quintessential Antiques! We are happy you found our web site and invite you to visit us at the shop in St. Louis, Missouri.

Established in 1996 by the Culbertson family, Quintessential Antiques was developed to offer quality Antique merchandise at realistic prices. Inspired by our love for Antiques and an entrepreneurial spirit, we regularly travel near and far hand selecting our merchandise, always keeping an eye out for the unique. Our opportunities to purchase range from a single object to collections to entire households.

When you visit our 4,500 square foot showroom, you will find creative, inspiring vignettes and one of the owners always available to answer your questions. Our goal is to be helpful, friendly and share our love of Antiques.

Please check our web site or store regularly as we are always actively buying and our stock changes frequently. The items featured on this site represent just a sampling of our inventory. If you are looking for a specific item, we invite you to register for our newsletter, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

Our brick and mortar shop retail hours are the 1st seven days of the month, from 11am-4pm, with early buying at 7am on the first of every month. We are hopeful that we will be open to the public again soon.

The online store is open 24/7, and we are available 7 days a week if you have any questions. 

Thanks for shopping!

Lou, Jo Ellen and Andy
