The Emporium

The Emporium at Samuel Aurand House


Our beginning started about a mile out of town as a Co-op with 18 vendors.  Our business was just taking off when The Samuel Aurand House became available.  Upon deciding to move we downsized to less vendors that provide quality unique antiques and collectibles.  Now located in the center of the small sleepy old German town of New Berlin you will find a treasure trove of  antiques & country crafts.  Located in The Samuel Aurand House B&B, which began in 1838 as a public house & tavern you will find our Co-op filled with an abundant variety of vintage & unique antiques, crafts and collectibles.

The Emporium is a one stop shopping place for all your design and decorating needs.  Our store has a variety of antiques and country crafts.  We offer candles both traditional and battery, baskets of any shape and size as well as greeting cards by “Leanin Tree”.  The antique side of the store has unique items both local to the area and from other parts of the state.  The Clock Guy is out newest vendor who brings his many clocks (100 years & older) as well as his ability to repair them.


Offerings in The Emporium The rear of the store is home to our year round Christmas Shoppe.  There you will find hundreds of ornaments, Santa’s, snowmen, trees, garlands and decorative items to fill your home for the holidays.  Also there you will find Chalkware items for many occasions as well as German Feather and tinsel trees, ‘Putz” houses, and homemade Christmas decorations.  We also carry a small line of antique furniture.  Local history books of our area towns can also be found at The Emporium.
