So many little knick knacks and antiques. It's like something out of an "I spy" book. Always love coming here just to see what's new. The outdoor plant section is inviting as well

We made a quick walkthrough while at the Great River Raft Race. Your typical layout with lots of different vendors. They have some local foods and then a sweeta bar up front which is cool and unique for a antique mall. Easy to get in, nice cool AC. Was a nice quick get away.

This is a great antique shop. Wonderful spot to browse. Multiple sellers with booths. You can take your time and you are sure to find a treasure. I found a new shoe for my collection. This one is brass. The staff person was friendly. They do have a restroom on site. It was fairly clean. They have a large paved parking lot, which is not usual in this part of New Bern. Highly recommend if you like antique/flea market type stores.

Stop what you're doing and plan a trip to Franklin's! I've collected actors for the last 16+ years, been in oh so many shops - Franklin's is in my top 5!The staff is SO friendly, offers to take your treasures up front so you don't have to try to hold everything. The shop is clean, and set up well.Obviously in antique shops inventory changes but these dealers are good at what they do and find amazing finds!! There is true acntiques here and fun vintage items plus gorgeous new home decor/furniture and some food items. Oh and beautiful plants!! Such a great mix! Can't wait till my next trip, and until then I'll rock my Franklins shirt and represent!!

Surprisingly large selection of quantity antiques at reasonable prices. Neat to see vintage safety razors, big name record albums, and various assorted items. Highly recommended.

No matter what the owner/proprietor's reply or excuse, it will not minimize how we felt today nor change our review of this business On the door of this shop (at least on this date) was a inconspicuous sign listing rules, which we admittedly did not notice. However, a friend we were with later said that he saw the sign which, he said, read no pets/no large breeds. We are from out of town, but frequent visitors to family in New Bern. We love vintage shopping, and our dog is almost universally welcome to join us. Still, we make employees aware of his presence and ask permission to bring our doggy stroller into a shop when entering. We did so here. Our 10 lb dog wears a visible purple harness that says NERVOUS on both sides and his stroller has a sign that reads NEEDS SPACE..... these messages are very much more evident than the confusing business sign and verbal okay we received when we were granted permission to bring our dog inside with him in the stroller. Our dog was clipped into his seat and could not get out of the stroller. We made an entire circuit of the shop, had even made a purchase, taken the purchase to our car, and returned to shop some more. Later, while making our way to the exit after completing our shopping, we were approached by a child of perhaps eight or nine. She made her way to our dog stroller with her hand outstretched, while my DH backed away as quickly as he could do so while inside a vintage shop, saying "No, no, no" all the while. At no time did the child request permission to approach our dog, nor did she attempt to retreat after my DH warned her. There was no adult supervision of the child. Only after our dog made a warning growl, did the child back away. At that point the owner/proprietor suddenly appeared and begin to berate us, claiming "We love our grandchild too much to allow this!" This man will perhaps claim that the bad pet owners cared more about their dog than about a child. Not true. Our dog was at no time outside of our control and the child was unharmed. On the other hand, the child was certainly not under adult supervision, nor was it apparent she has ever been taught pet courtesy. She did not appear nearly as frightened as we were humiliated by the grandfather/owner/proprietor. Not a recommended shopping experience. Enough said.Five adults watching a child approach a dog without permission and doing nothing. Cameras trained on customers throughout their shopping experience without incident except the one described. A business owner blaming his customers for negligence. Interesting.

I'm an antique dealer and stopped in all the shops in New Bern during a visit. This is the best one.

Great staff and costumer service. All associates are very kind and friendly. The woodshop has some amazing pieces and all custom and one of a kind. Great local business ? ?.

Very cool collection of a wide variety of stuff. From old toys, antiques, collectibles, classmate, cooking/kitchen equipment, vintage clothes, craft items, plants, holiday decorations, beautiful raw edge wood slabs and furniture. Vendors have their own area and each has done a great job organizing and staging their goods for sale. There is one central check out. This place is a treat for anyone over 50 with any nostalgic feelings. Moms Corning ware, our Barbies with clothes and carrying case. Do yourself a favor and put this antique market place on list of things to do in historic New Bern.

Came here last year and bought some great finds, only to come back and notice they sell n*** paraphernalia?! Guess that tells me what I need to know about the people who operate this place. Avoid!!
