|Landmark Acres Antiques is an antiques shop established in 1946 owned by Ed and Wilma Benjamin since 1974. In 1986 we purchased Candlelight Lodge and opened it as a Bed and Breakfast in the center of Westfield, NY. We also opened the Captain Storm House in 2004 next door, after moving the brick home in 2000 to Candlelight property. With the assistance of the National and State Historic Trusts we were able to complete its restoration. The Captain Storm House is a special Vacation Rental, a brick Queen Anne Victorian home designed by the famous architect George Barber.|
Landmark Acres Antiques offers a selection of 18th, 19th and early 20th century country and formal American Furniture as well as some European and Asian pieces (1720 to 1920). We also offer art, oriental rugs, china, glass and porcelain, a large selection of silver flatware and hollowware, coins, jewelry, watches, books, paintings, a large selection of early lighting, aesthetic movement, art nouveau, arts and craft, and decorative accessories. The following are a few examples of antiques that we have in stock to give you an idea of our inventory. Visit or call our shop if you have special needs.
We buy from many older homes within a couple of hundred miles. This includes most of Ohio, Western Pennsylvania and Western New York. This area has a history of having many fine historical furnishings in their homes. Remember this area is the site of the original rise of 19th century industry in our nation. Oil was also first discovered in the United States just a few miles south of us in Titusville, Pa. 1859. As people in several surrounding communities became wealthy they bought many things, at first from Pittsburgh but then directly out of New York City. Tiffany designed many of their windows. It was the dawn of the oil industry, no longer from sperm whales but now from the earth. Recently we are interested in purchasing Gold and Silver (jewelry, sterling, coins), late 18th, 19th & early 20th Century American & European Furniture, early Lighting & Aesthetic Movement pieces (Art Nouveau & Arts & Craft)

All purchases require a 50% deposit and the balance to be paid within 30 days. Your balance has to clear before pick-up and the pick-up must be scheduled in advance.
Do not consign without asking a few important questions. Is the item insured, how is the item priced and if placed on a website, what is the site name? Most consignments involve shop owners and their website. Your items might also be photographed and placed on larger websites or different places, perhaps with an auctioneer. You should have this information in order to follow an item's sale and final price.
