The Store with a Unique Focus on Quality Hand Crafted Products from America and Old World Europe


We're Dog People ! (Cat people still very welcomed)

This is Ruby on the Left and our beloved Katie in the middle, on the right is Elizabeth going to help the next customer

We grew up in the retail business and have had our own shop (a real store...not a fake ebay or amazon or other web store since 1964), part time at first while we worked for Sears for 30+ years and then full time.  Paid for with our money.  We have real brick & mortar shop, where you may come look, touch and feel the merchandise.   We have selected items based on quality and integrity, companies and individuals that believe in what they are doing and not just trying to make a quick buck.

We now carry on the Heritage of our parents, who started a business in 1964 and established a well known antique and collectible shop in Chadds Ford, Chester County, Pennsylvania. They featured early American tools, antique furniture, kitchen items and art and crafts from our early American history. The shop’s customer list includes collectors, artists, historians and everyday shoppers from the Eastern United States. Her long time customers included such famous artists such as Andrew and Jamie Wyeth who stopped in on a regular basis.

A word about Quality . . .

Dad always taught us to spend a little more and get the best, because it will outlast several items of lesser quality and you will always be pleased and satisfied with your purchase. Items that you purchase from "The Heritage Shop" are just that, the best we can find for you, our friends and customers. And you won’t find artsy gallery high prices here, we price all our items fairly so everyone can select a fine quality handmade item that’s within your budget.  If you want cheap junk please go to wal-mart.
