RIDGWAY - Just one week after opening its doors, Gallery 219 Antiques at 114 N. Broad St. in downtown Ridgway is already unlike many of the antique shops in the area.
The newly renovated space offers a wide variety of antiques and collectibles, ranging from items dating back to the turn of the century to classic Americana from the 1950s.
For store owner and St. Marys resident Stephen Bagley, antiquing, or "junking" as he likes to refer to it, runs in his blood.
"My grandfather was an antique dealer, my two aunts were antique dealers, and I was always going to flea markets 'junking' when I was a little kid," Stephen said. "My grandfather's antique shop was in Leeper and the flea market was practically right next door."
