We've finally done it!! Our Blog!!

We would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves and welcome you to
Eagle Emporium.
For the last 10 years we have welcomed many thousands of shoppers to our online shop offering our wonderful selsction of

Our website was an extension of our Antique and Collectible Shop in Eagle, PA., which we opened Jan. 02, 1992. Our first sale that morning was a vintage tea towel to a Texas dealer that was passing by and stopped in. Our first $1.00!!! From such humble beginnings, Eagle Emporium began. At the beginning we were just a little over 500 square feet of space. At the time, the economy was slow but with neat stuff and great prices we hung in there and prospered. We carried a general line of Antiques and Collectibles and specialized in Restored Antique and Vintage Lighting.

Through the years, we endeavored to add new products that enhanced and accessorized the antiques. One such product we found early on in the wonderful hand made iron products of two Amish brothers in Lancaster County. Simple, functional and timeless in design, the iron quickly became a best seller in our shop.
We have been privileged to offer this wonderful line of Amish made Primitive style Wrought Iron for the home for more that 15 years.
The iron was extremely popular in our area--not far from Lancaster County--and we knew it would be well received further away. So, for a time, we advertized in a number of country magazines and shipped it all over the country.
Then we were introduced to the internet and we were hooked!

Meanwhile, the shop had undergone several expansions--even to occupying three of the four building in the center of town.

After a few rough starts with a website, we ended up with just what we needed, designed and written by our daughter, Janice--shopping cart and all and there has been no turning back since then.

When we eventually closed our shop in Eagle in December 2003, it was to concentrate on the online business which had grown exponentially.
We now offer our vintage lighting and Amish made wrought iron exclusively online.
We are a small operation--just the three of us and we handle it all-fulltime.

In addition to selling the wrought iron on a retail basis, we are also wholesale distributors.

At some point we decided to add Warm Glow Candles to our website--they were always great sellers in the shop and we personally found them to be simply greatest!
