What’s on Second? Antiques and oddities abound

Tucked away on the corner of 2nd Ave. N and 23rd St, What’s On Second is an antiques and collectibles shop with as much character as inventory.

 

“We carry everything that has ever been made in one convenient shopping location!” is the claim on the store’s Facebook page.

The tiny shop is packed to the brim with everything from vintage toys to antique chandeliers and collectible belt buckles.

Unlike antique malls with staged areas for each vendor, What’s On Second? is piled with unique items. Customers enter the shop and are free to wander through the three stories of comic books, lamps, cigar boxes, vases and vinyl records.

With traditional items you would find in an antique store, as well as an entire section dedicated to collectible video games, the store has something for nearly everyone.
