Looking Back at Our Shop’s Valuable Transformation
The most dramatic renovations began in 1994 when the previous owners embarked on a big project to transform the old post and beam-constructed building into an antique shop and personal residence. Skylights were installed to brighten up the vast interior space. They ingeniously turned the expansive tin roof into a gigantic billboard that can be seen from Route 60, by painting the words “ART & ANTIQUES” in 12-foot-tall letters across the rooftop.
Trees and shrubs were planted to spruce up the exterior landscape. And, the enterprise was christened with its new name, Pickle Barrel Art & Antiques.
The Birth of Today’s Pickle Barrel Trading Post
Today’s owners retained the name Pickle Barrel but added ‘Trading Post’ to the name to denote the addition of a Native American gallery that features fine art, jewelry, Indian crafts, and authentic trading post supplies.
Visitors assume that the historic building was once upon a time a pickle factory. The welcoming sign at the entrance says, “You Won’t Believe What’s Inside!” That slogan proves to be a genuine understatement for anyone who experiences the Pickle Barrel Trading Post adventure!
