After visiting the shops in Prescott Valley, I had just enough time to visit two shops in Prescott. These two shops are some of the newest in Prescott and I was really looking forward to checking them out.
Cowboy Country Antiques
My first stop in Prescott was Cowboy Country Antiques. Owner Kevin Feagins was out of town, but his assistant Cindy was there to greet me. Cindy is one of the more than thirty dealers in this 6,000 square foot mall. There are several rooms to explore and I enjoyed checking out the whole place! One display in particular caught my eye and I knew it would make an especially nice cover photo.
Kevin has been a familiar face around Prescott for years as one of the best-known “Pickers” of antiques and western memorabilia and he has expanded his search for the unusual and unique throughout the Western United States. With his extensive background and collection, Kevin wanted to open his own Antique Mall and found a great location on Montezuma Street. What was originally a car dealership, this location offered not only a huge indoor space but also a large parking lot for his customers and the frequent parking lot sales. Cowboy Country Antiques opened in April 2018 and has become a popular spot for both local and out of town shoppers.
The mall offers Western antiques, collectibles and memorabilia, antiques, vintage, signage and advertisement, home décor, cowboy boots, hats and clothing—and the list goes on. Customers say this is a real antique store with museum quality antiques. Many have commented on the clean look of the mall with its inviting displays and wide aisles for moving through the store.
The front room has two sets of tables with chairs that invite you to sit and visit awhile. There is even a checkerboard and the staff encourages people to come on into this old-time general store and relax over a game of checkers. It has become a local hang out where regulars and old cowboys come to spend time. It’s definitely a friendly place and Kevin has created an atmosphere of community. You will want to add this mall to your list of favorites in Prescott.
Cowboy Country Antiques is located at 324 S Montezuma, Prescott, and is open Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. More information can be found on Facebook and Instagram or by calling 928-458-5960.
My next stop was at Patina on Gurley Street as you come into Downtown Prescott. This shop is family owned and each of the Weaver family members is involved in running the store. Melinda and Jerry are the official owners and son Ravi helps when needed. The younger children, Gideon and Ziva, are great sales staff and helped me find some treasures off their “Kid’s table.” Store manager Serena works a few days a week and that rounds out the staff.
This shop opened in May 2018 but the Weavers have over thirty years of experience in the antique and art industry. The family moved across the country from Maine and has discovered a great love for Prescott and its history.
Because the Weavers appreciate carefully crafted items, Patina has many unique and interesting offerings, including one-off treasures, antiques, furniture, mid-century pieces, vintage, repurposed, home décor and living plants. There is also jewelry and a large variety of “smalls,” a few animal related products and a variety of “practi-cool” items. The Weavers said, “We search high and low for the special and unique. We hope you enjoy what you see and feel when you come by. If you do not see an item you need for your home or collection, let us know, as we may have it in stock not yet in the shop or might find it for you.”
The shop is a fun place to explore and the Weavers are so warm and welcoming that you will feel like you have new friends when you leave. One customer said, “What a find in Prescott! Fell in love with this store and owners! Bought a perfect nightstand in great condition. Beautiful selection of midcentury modern art and furniture!” Another commented, “Terrifically well curated collection of wonderful art, fantastic furniture and delightful smalls. World-class store—worth the trip from anywhere to Prescott.”
Located at 107 E Gurley Street, Prescott, Patina is open Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, go to www.prescottpatina.com, like them on Facebook, follow them on Instagram or call 928-273-6198.
Prescott is a favorite destination and the shop owners and staffs are so friendly! It’s a friendly town with many sights to see and activities to enjoy in addition to checking out the shops. Why not visit and spend some time exploring. This might just become one of your favorite destinations. Be sure to tell them The Antique Register sent you!
