Nice variety of antique and vintage. Lower level is becoming working studios and space for craft classes At most recent visit they were near to adding coffee shop. You can enjoy coffee and tea and relax at their window tables among the antiques. This is a frequent stop for us

From the outside it looks like any other building front. And then you look in the windows and notice what looks to be a table from at least the 18th century. I couldn't pass it up so I went in. The owner saw my interest in the table and explained a little bit of the story. I continued to checkout... More

This is a large space, but it looks kind of sparsely filled. Much of it is ho-hum, but there are a few nice pieces. Worth 15 minutes - don't understand how anyone could spend an hour here unless they've been locked in a room for a while. If in town - go. If not, don't bother.

I can not go in to this store without spending at least an hour looking around because it has so much to offer. From handmade jewelry, cards, soaps, ornaments, decorations, wooden objects, photographs, and paintings, the crafts are unique and well organized. Then there are the antiques, which vary from dollhouses to books to tea pots to furniture and beyond!

This store has both a combination of art done by local and nationally known artists as well as antiques for sale by local dealers. Worth the visit while visiting Altavista, VA

Attended reception with the artists. Light snacks, wine tasting, live music. An enjoyable evening. Pleasantly surprised at the quantity and quality of local art. Attended a gallery reception in Richmond VA previously. Their gallery space and event organization left something to be desired compared to Altavista Art & Antiques, which is located in a small town.
