The historic building at 596 Depot Street, NE became an antique store in 1988 as Cambria Emporium then as Charlotte’s Web II Antique Mall in 2018 before becoming Cambria Station Antiques on July 1 2022 when it was purchased by Scott Bandy (of Old New and Primitive Too, handmade custom furniture) and Ken and Heather Vaughan (of Old New River Books). With years of experience, the partners are excited to continue the longstanding tradition as operators of an antique store business. Their vision is to become the best eclectic shopping destination in the New River Valley as well as Christiansburg’s biggest used bookstore.

Many changes have already taken place in the four short months since the trio has owned it. Most obvious is the first floor renovation that has completely opened it back up to add a 2000 square foot used bookstore, a dedicated vintage LP section and an expanded media area while keeping the previous 6 dealer spaces and glass showcase area. A reconfiguration of the second floor has created space for 6 new dealers and a year round Christmas (holiday) room. The Attic or third floor has been brightened up with natural light and additional supplemental lighting to showcase the views and beautiful early 1900’s craftsmanship all while making more organized space for furniture, smalls and art. When visiting the third floor make sure to check out the original elevator system which is original to the store (possibly the first elevator in Montgomery County, VA).

As with so many antique stores, Cambria Station Antiques also utilizes a business model that incorporates many different dealers in one store. “We are grateful for all 18 of the previous store’s dealers to stay with us as we transitioned to Cambria Station Antiques in July. Having veteran dealers with years of experience is a huge asset for our store” says owner, Heather Vaughan. Since then, 7 new additional dealers whose fresh ideas and products are adding to our existing selection. “A lot of consideration is put into selecting the right dealers.”, Heather adds “We search out unique dealers who have exceptional taste and creative display ideas while having a professional vision that aligns with ours”.
