Reminiscence by Rita LLC opened June 19, 2015. The store contains an eclectic combination of antiques, vintage items, and collectibles.

Owners Brad and Rita Manthey have been dealing in antiques and collectibles for 20 years. They have been in antique malls and sell at antique shows, vintage and flea markets.

We decided we wanted our own store. After much searching, we purchase the building at 123 S Main St. We have faith that our downtown will continue to expand and grow, With the farmers market downtown, word is spreading that we are here. We have had customers from the surrounding area, other states, Australia and even some repeat customers from Shanghai.

We have sold at shows from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to Rochester, Minnesota. We also sell at many different venues from Green Bay to Milwaukee.

Our store has a wide variety of items including vintage Christmas, Halloween, primitive tools, postcards, antique kitchen utensils, beer items, small furniture, vintage toys, jugs, crocks, and more.

Stop in today for that item big box stores don’t carry. Buy a one-of-a-kind item. Buy a piece of nostalgia or history – something that reminds you of your childhood or something your grandma used to have.
