Main Street Minute: Vintage City

Posted: Updated:

Do you like searching for that hidden treasure or rummaging for a retro find?  Well, for those people who like to discover all things antique or vintage, this is certainly the shop for you. And it all began with a hobby.

"We really always had a passion and a love for antiques and for vintage items. And, we had quite an extensive collection ourselves," says Bill Uscensky.

Because their collection grew, owners, Marla Rae and Bill Uscensky decided to turn their hobby for antiquing into a business by opening up Vintage City in December.

Once people walk inside their store, they are walking back into time.

"Everything has a story. Everything has a history. There's a meaning to everything. You don't necessarily buy something because its valuable, but you buy it because you love it," says Bill Uscensky.

The Uscenskys travel to estate sales and flea markets to find that hidden treasure.

But if you can't find what you're looking for in the store, don't worry; you can leave a request in the wish book.

"They can put their name and their phone number and what they are trying to seek, to find, and collect and when we find that item, we can contact them. And, we're always granting wishes, fulfilling wishes; which is a really fun part of the business," says Uscensky.

Vintage City has a lot of unique items, everything from furniture to dishware.    

They're open Thursday through Saturday on the 2nd and 4th weeks of the month from 10am to 5pm or by appointment.

They are located off Burdick Expressway East in Minot, west of the Holiday Inn.
