It’s said that it’s very hard to get the antique business out of your system, once you are “hooked” and it looks like Dave and Diane Vigne, owners of Granite Creek Antiques & Bayberry’s Antique Dolls in Prescott, are living proof that it’s true!
Dave was raised in the antique business and opened his first shop in 1974 on Los Feliz Blvd. in Los Angeles. Then, 25 years ago, the couple opened their first Prescott antiques shop and auction house and operated it until they decided to retire at the end of 1999 and that shop closed.
However, about 4 years ago, Diane decided to open a small doll shop on Montezuma, moving to a larger location on Cortez Street. Dave then became involved again and the business grew into a full antique shop, which expanded into their big newest location at 218 N. Granite Street, Prescott. So much for retirement!
Granite Creek Antiques & Bayberry’s Antique Dolls is now located two blocks from historical downtown Prescott in a 4,000 square foot warehouse. Shoppers will find a wide variety of quality items—primarily pre-1910—including: antique furniture with a good selection of larger pieces, architectural items, artwork, coin-op vending machines, Coca Cola machines, Western items, antique and vintage bicycles, a large collection of Victrola and Edison machines, porcelain, and glassware. The assortment of clocks is extensive and varied plus there is lots of lighting—from hanging lamps to table lamps. Offerings change weekly as new items arrive.
Dave visits many auctions and also buys antiques from individuals. He is selective with his choices and brings in pieces that may only need minor restoration, which he is able to do himself in his workshop on the premises.
