Walking through your grandparent’s 1920s bungalow - small, cozy rooms all with a garden view, a fireplace, and a solarium with a magnificent view of Mendocino, your discoveries are endless - there's a beloved sled leaning in one corner, 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, a carefully preserved 1930s Schwinn, seasonal decorations waiting to be hung—this is but a sampling of the experience you will have at The Attic of Mendocino.
Visit us in the former Arts and Crafts home of Dr. Carl V. Whited, DDS, built 1923-26 and wonderfully restored. You'll find a carefully selected collection of antique, mid-century, and vintage artifacts sharing space with retro-inspired products, repurposed and restored frames, vintage-inspired calendars and glassware, floral and garden items in the solarium, and other unique home décor items. There's outsider art, unique assemblages, photography, vintage oils, tramp art, jewelry, select antique and vintage furniture including tables, chairs, and desk, and a whole lot more selective merchandise -- an unrivaled combination that has been described as the "most unusual antique store ever, it's like a museum, and the music is great!"
Visit us soon. Despite the fog, the view awaits and there is no additional charge for time travel!
