We believe we have developed a niche at our store. It's a simple one, we actually sell antiques! We allow a maximum 10% of the items in a booth to be newer, and most of our vendors sell nothing but antiques. We work hard to weed out reproductions and maintain the highest standards. We really do pride ourselves on our customer service too. As the owners; we welcome any feedback from our customers, good or bad. Our customer base grows every year because of the attention we pay to detail and the service we provide to our industry. Antiquing at Cheshire Antiques is like stepping back in time to another era in Nevada's history, where friendly service is not a lost art, but just our way of doing business. When purchasing a Nevada antique, you are acquiring a small piece of Nevada history.
Arendt Jensen Merchandise (Carson Valley, Nevada Mercantile)
Arendt Jensen built this general merchandise store in the spring of 1896. On the store shelves shoppers could find a wide variety of everyday necessities and supplies, from clothing to agricultural tools and seeds. Mr. Jensen also founded the Douglas County Farmer's Bank in Gardnerville-the first bank in Carson Valley. While it appears that our business is located in one large building, there are actually two connected buildings, on two separate parcels. Mr. Jensen sold the adjoining property to the Masonic Lodge in 1919. Members of the Masonic Lodge laid the corner stone for the existing building on April 29, 1921. Masonic lodge #33 still holds regular meetings upstairs to this day.

*Antiquing in Carson Valley, Nevada*
Shopping for antiques in Gardnerville and Minden Nevada, is more than just shopping; it is a historical experience. When you purchase a local antique at Cheshire Antiques, you are purchasing a piece of history. The Carson Valley is the birthplace and garden spot of Nevada located at the base of the Sierra Nevada just minutes away from Lake Tahoe.
This lush valley, with its spectacular scenery, was a stopping place for emigrants to rest themselves and their livestock before crossing the daunting Sierras on their way to seek their fortunes in the California gold fields. Some stayed behind to become ranchers or merchants and established trading posts along the Emigrant trail.
Shortly after the start of the California Gold Rush, silver was discovered in Nevada, and the small towns in the valley began to boom as people made their way to the silver mines of Virginia City and the Comstock Lode, which are less than an hour away. These towns still retain their historical character and charm with tree-lined streets, western and Victorian architecture, beautiful parks, and museums.
