We hope to help preserve a part of history!
For about 40 years, my parents, Casey and Hope, were in the antique and collectibles business. From 1978 until 1999 they travelled the U.S. during the warmer seasons, working show circuits in Cape Cod, the Chicago Area, the Carolinas, and well, you get the idea.
They opened a store in Wilton Manors, Florida in 1992, which was sold in 1998 prior to moving to Nevada in 1999. In early 2000, they opened Casey's J.A.C.C. (Jewelry, Antiques, Collectibles and Cigars (which included all forms of tobacciana). The cigars were not vintage!
Over the years, I worked with them from time to time, with a solid stint of exclusively “Antiqueing” back in 1983 and 1984. I have kept a hand in the business in a limited fashion until now.
When my dad became ill in 2004, they closed the shop. My mom packed and warehoused their merchandise to concentrate on his care until he passed in 2013.
Now we have decided to bring back the store in an electronic format. We hope you will enjoy browsing our store and check back often, as we will be adding a variety of items on a regular basis. Though we have a lot of jewelry, we offer collectible Tobacciana items, collectible plates, vintage crystal, some Disneyana, and more!
Thanks for checking us out, and please feel free to purchase as many items as you like! We won't mind a bit...
Happy shopping and have a wonderful day!
Hope (mom / Casey's wife/widow)
I always enjoyed this business, but am not able to travel as I used to for shows. One of my passions is re-purposing what is salvageable from damaged vintage jewelry to keep a bit of history alive. I hope you like my creations and our vintage items.
David (son / brother)
Owner, Photographer, Customer Service
I worked with my parents in 1984 and 1985, and kept a hand in the Antique business throughout the years. I have always enjoyed the journey, and hope we can provide some items that you'll love to own. My grandchildren and I hope you enjoy the shop!
Arlyn has always had an artistic flair! She is able to look at an item and determine whether it's a good value at a glance. The oldest of the three of us kids, she has been a source of guidance and watched over us throughout the years.
Steven (son / brother)
Role Model & Inspiration To All! 1960 - 2003
Steven inspired us with his drive to succeed, energy, positive attitude, and love of family. He was as a magician since age 7 and an antique dealer from age 20, and traveled the world performing and procuring treasures. We miss him every day!
Casey (father / Hope's husband)
Namesake, 1932 - 2013
My dad, known as Casey to most, was a lover of the history told by antiques and collectibles. He could always tell an interesting story! It would make him smile to know that we are continuing to provide that bit of physical history to others.
Etsy is the most appropriate venue for our merchandise that we have found.
We hope you enjoy browsing our store, and please, buy as much as you like. I promise, we won’t mind!
Thanks again for checking us out!
David and family!
