Located at 57 Pond Street on Rte. 103 in Ludlow, in the Okemo Marketplace across from the Okemo access road, Lost Treasures Antiques & Home Decor offers a wide variety of antiques and home furnishings.
Established in 2009, co-owners John and Ginny Espeland offer over 40 years experience in the field, having also run antique shops in Chester and Keene, NH. "We originally had a shop in Chester for 21 years, before moving to a shop in Keene for 15 years," John said in a recent interview. "Then last year we decided is time to come home again and have now opened our new shop in Ludlow."
One of their specialties includes a unique expertise in classic furniture items, ranging from the mid-1800's right through 1970's modernism, and a selection of mission/arts & crafts furniture. Lost Treasures also specializes in very unique collectable items. "We have all kinds of collectibles, toys and items," John added. "Anything from collectible beer steins and duck decoys, to classic Barbie Dolls, tea sets, copper boilers, antique toasters and vintage cocktail shakers.
They also carry a wide selection of depression glass of all colors and patterns, crystal brandy snifters and stem ware for nearly any kind of drink, as well as a selection of vintage books such as leather bound and gold-leaf editions of classics.
Lost Treasures even offers a selection of matted and framed, limited prints such as "Ducks Unlimited", most numbered and signed by the artists. Also, if you are looking for a special or particular item, you can stop by and sign their "wish book" with your request.
