Walking through your grandparent’s 1920s bungalow – a living room with a comb-brushed fireplace, other small, cozy rooms all with a garden view, a fireplace, and a solarium with a magnificent view of the Mendocino Bay and blue Pacific, your discoveries are endless - there's a beloved sled leaning in one corner, old tools, toys and figurines, trunks that open to reveal vintage clothing and travel mementos, a spinning wheel, your Uncle Henry's cameras and photo equipment from another time, radios, a well preserved 1930s Schwinn, seasonal decorations waiting to be hung and vintage photographs —this is but a sampling of what you’ll see and experience at The Attic of Mendocino.
Discover a carefully selected collection of antique, mid-century, and vintage artifacts sharing space with retro-inspired products, repurposed and restored frames and assemblages created by local artists, vintage-inspired calendars and notebooks, Victoria Era button jewelry, glassware, garden, floral, and other unique home décor. There are antique and vintage tools, toys and figurines, kitchenware, crocks, and bottles, cameras and related equipment, antique art and vintage black and white photography, and a small selection of antique books.
The Attic of Mendocino is located on Main Street in the former Arts and Crafts Bungalow of Dr. Carl V. Whited, DDS, a well-respected and community-minded resident of Mendocino. The home, his office, and the garage, built between 1922 and 1925, have all been lovingly restored and the view from the solarium and front steps can be breathtaking.
The Attic of Mendocino is not your typical antique store, and there is no additional charge for time travel!
