Yesterday’s Antique Mall owner Glen Kozemchak and The Clock Store owner Jonathan Schultz welcome patrons to visit them at the north end of Broken Arrow’s Main Street, just south of 71st Street (Kenosha).
Main Street in downtown Broken Arrow is “The Rose District.” And Yesterday’s Antique Mall is a major anchor on that shopping strip. You may know a little about Broken Arrow’s booming Main Street, with all its new shops and restaurants, but there are still many in metro Tulsa who know little about the area. If you haven’t visited the northern boundaries of The Rose District, you’ve missed something special – specifically, Yesterday’s Antique Mall and The Clock Store, located inside the mall.
Glen Kozemchak owns Yesterday’s Antique Mall, and many visitors have proclaimed it to be the best antique mall they have ever visited. “We don’t say we’re the best; our customers do,” says Glen. People visit from far and wide, including numerous other states. Stop by and see for yourself. The friendly employees and clean, comfortable surroundings will have you coming back time and time again.
Browse the aisles of yesteryear, reminiscing the past in search of rare, one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts for that special hard-to-please friend or family member. “You can find those treasures your mom threw away many years ago,” says Glen. The location is 15,000 square feet and has over 140 booths and cases. You’ll find vintage furniture, collectibles, sterling silver jewelry, silver bullion and coins, primitives, antique tools, pottery, crystal and Depression glassware, fishing supplies at the lowest price in the region, comic books and other books, advertising signs, military items and over 10,000 records. One patron said, “Being here is like reliving my childhood.”
Yesterday’s Antique Mall also houses The Clock Store, where owner and clock specialist Jonathan Schultz takes pride in “fixing memories” for owners of all types of clocks. He buys, sells and services grandfather and other clocks.
According to Glen, “We travel the highways and byways of Oklahoma purchasing hard-to-find, unique treasures, and then we pass the savings on to you, our valued customers.”
Gift certificates are available from Yesterday’s Antique Mall and The Clock Store. “Instead of giving dad a shirt and tie this year,” says Jonathan, “why not give him a gift certificate to adjust, oil and do minor repairs on his treasured clock?”
