9th Street Antiques started in the spring
of 1990 doing local and out-of-state antique shows.
We were then and continue now to specialize in turn-of-the-century
furniture, with additional inventory in lighting, glassware,
china, and many other collectibles. We grew substantially
as years went by, from a 1,000 square foot store on
Milwaukee's south side, to a 5,000 square foot refinishing
business in Wind Lake, Wisconsin, while running a 3,500
square foot store on South 1st Street (called 1st Street
In 1998, we purchased a 20,000 square
foot building for refinishing and storage and "appointment
only" sales on South 5th Street in Milwaukee. That
building, unfortunately, burned to the ground on February
14, 2001. We were lucky no one was injured, but the
building and our entire inventory was a total loss.
It took 110 firefighters and multiple fire trucks to
control the 10-1/2 hour blaze. Although devastated,
we picked up the pieces and moved on again.
Through hard work and determination,
we started from scratch and bought and fully restored
what is now home to 9th Street Antiques at 602 South
9th Street in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Our building is
2 blocks north of 9th Street and National Avenue, and
is in the heart of the "Walker's Point" area which is
an up-and-coming location on the near south side. The
building houses a huge showroom full of high-end furniture, lighting, clocks and architectural pieces. We welcome
rare consignments, and ample parking is always available.
The owner and proprietor,
Wally Holtz, can always be reached on-site or by phone,
and looks forward to meeting all your needs in the world
