ANN ARBOR, Mich. – In early February, Antelope Antiques and Coins will close after serving the Ann Arbor area for over two decades.

Currently located underneath Afternoon Delight, the antique shop has been a much-loved spot by antique fans and coin collectors in Ann Arbor since 1996.

Owned by Amy Lagler, the basement shop has begun to liquidate its unique antiques. Currently, items such as Czech glass, pottery, coins and jewelry, along with other treasures in the underground shop can be purchased with an additional 30% discount.

Lagler decided to close the shop after the passing of her husband, Karl, who was known for his collection of rare stamps and vintage University of Michigan memorabilia, in October.

Over the course of the past 20 years, the couple moved their treasures to various locations around Ann Arbor and ultimately settled into the 1,500-square-foot downtown location in 2008.

Other items at Antelope Antiques include furniture, decorative china, glass art, tintypes, ornate pins, tools and clothing.

Discounts are likely to increase as the closing date approaches.

Antelope Antiques and Coins is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The shop is at 255 E. Liberty Street.
