The Feed Store - Antiques & Such

At the Santa Ysabel Store
30275 Highway 78 in historic Santa Ysabel, CA 92070

The Santa Ysabel Store is excited to add to our general store an antiques and architectural salvage store to what was originally the feed store section.

The addition offers salvaged architectural elements along with vintage, antique and reproduction home and garden furnishings, including lighting, pottery, china, and more. Preservationists, artists, architects, antique collectors, students, and history buffs seeking materials for restoration and recycling projects or for personal pleasure should enjoy the hunt in this 1,000-square-foot space.

Since we bought, restored, and reopened the general store in October of 2012 the landmark has quickly reprised its role as the most important heritage site still standing in this idyllic turn-of-the-20th-century farming town. The main store was built of adobe in 1884 and expanded in the 1890's with a wood-frame section dedicated to animal feed and farming supplies. The impeccably restored façade with its original signage in black lettering on the cream building beckons to one and all.

If you have had the chance to visit you know that the store has been restored inside and out and outfitted with authentic 19th-century furnishings and stocked with artisanal foodstuffs, home and garden wares, heirloom seeds and bulbs, and many other specialty and hard to find items. If you have not seen it yet, you will want to make sure to add it to your next visit to the backcountry.

Items are donated to help fund the important historic preservation work SOHO does. The Feed Store - Antiques & Such provides SOHO with a year-round opportunity to raise monies, provides you a place for cast offs from a preservation project, or maybe you are downsizing, or perhaps dealing with a family estate and are looking for the right charity to donate to.

We are actively seeking quality donations of antiques and vintage architectural artifacts for the resale shop and all sales proceeds will benefit SOHO and all donations are tax-deductible. We're looking for especially nice items, fine furnishings, art, folk or primitive pieces, items from all eras, even up through mid-century modern.

We so appreciate the generosity of people who support the work that SOHO does.

We ask that donations be delivered to the store during open hours, or that donors make other arrangements for delivery by contacting us.

The Santa Ysabel Store is open seasonally, with plenty of free parking. For more information and to make donations call (619) 297-9327, or email us at, or use this form.
