Rick & Jane Wire have been collecting, buying and selling antiques and used furniture since 1995. They moved to Carlisle in 2005, and have become very active in the community including Carlisle C.A.R.E.S. Homeless Shelter. Rick & Jane became very good friends with Mary Roell, owner of Bedford St. Antiques where they rented space for 2 years. In July of 2012, they had an “ah-ha” moment when they stumbled across a vacant 12,000 sq. ft. building that had the perfect location and could also accommodate in-house auctions, something that no other Antique Shop in the area could provide. The fact that it was a mere 6 minutes from their home made it a no brainer. This was it! On August 1, 2012, Rick & Jane opened “Serendipity Antique Gallery”. The Gallery features Antiques, Collectibles, Jewelry, Coins, Silver & Currency, Primitives, Industrial, Quality Used Furniture and the LARGEST selection of Antique furniture in Central PA!
• Located just 3 miles off Rt. 81 & PA. Turnpike coming into Carlisle
• 8,500 sq. ft. of space on ONE floor
• Lots of parking
• Monthly In-house auctions
