For the love of history...

Located in the historic New Castle Opera House, we are an eclectic cooperative, consisting of 5000 sq ft of art, antiques, collectibles & treasures. We offer an on-site Acquisition Specialist, professional framer and jewelry services. We’re not your average antique store.

Michelle Quaranta,  Founding Owner

 5 years ago Michelle started a dream and built a great foundation.  Today we thank her and wish her all the best as she moves on to her next venture.  Michelle's passion and love for Historic New Castle and beyond are seen and felt in the gallery.  We all wish you all the best!  God Bless You!!!






Rodney Pratt Framing & Gallery


I have been involved in framing for 10 years. My current and on going association is with Qoro, a specialized reproduction system that can create giclee prints of the original paintings at a fair market value that has not been achievable before. I have worked with many of the local artists, framing originals & reproductions, with the latest mouldings & materials that can be found in the market place. I have also done countless hours of research to find mouldings that customers want to match mouldings that may or may not exist.
