When I’m sitting at home bored on a Saturday afternoon, my favorite thing to do is to go “antiquing”. There are so many unique things to be found around Scioto County and some of the neatest items that I have found came from Ghosts In The Attic Antique Mall.
They are located on 518 Second Street in the Boneyfiddle area and have three stories for you to explore. They offer your typical antiques and collectible items, but have recently added some new goodies.
Homemade soaps, local honey, jewelry, books, and t-shirts are just a few of their new additions.
The building that they are located in is a part of the rich history that the Boneyfiddle area provides. The building was built in the 1800s.
Previously it has been a general mercantile, a wholesale drug company, Ohio Valley Coffee Company, West End Furniture Company, and a few others. It was once even occupied by an undertaker!
When talking to them about COVID and how it has affected their business, they told me how they had been closed for over 6 weeks in the early spring and didn’t reopen until May 12th.
They are requiring face masks and were so excited to welcome everyone back. They even had customers lined up waiting for them to unlock the doors on their reopening day.
They told me this, “We really appreciate our loyal customers who have become our friends as well as customers. The community is a tremendous support to us as well as local businesses.”
The next time that you are sitting at home bored, or are in the mood for a DIY project, go check out Ghost In The Attic Antique Mall on second street! You won’t be disappointed.
