Welcome to Antiques on 8

Antiques on 8 is Houston’s newest and most exciting antiques neighborhood. It exists for the mutual benefit of Houston’s antiques community: owners of antiques, antiques dealers and their patrons, design professionals and finally for the antiques themselves. Antiques on 8 is not a flea market nor an outlet for reproductions and ersatz. It’s a place to see and learn about antiques that offers the opportunity to take ownership of and responsibility for the preservation of artifacts that are a testament to our culture and our civilization.

We believe that antiques are ours to enjoy and care for today, a way to honor the past but also a treasure to preserve for the future. This ethos is reflected by what our dealers sell and how they view their mission. As antiques enthusiasts first and foremost, they devote their time and centuries of combined experience to a search for things worth owning. The fruits of this labor of love are here at Antiques on 8 to enrich your life.

So come explore our acre of antiques under one roof: from furniture, lighting, art glass, paintings and oriental rugs to clocks and watches, jewelry, silver, scientific and musical instruments, tools, western paraphernalia, clothing, Civil War era relics and other militaria, Americana and decorative objects of incredible variety. Learn from our exhibits, share knowledge with our dealers and gain a better understanding of our joint heritage. Expand a collection or start one. Furnish your home or office with items that reflect a unique personality and that tend with time to increase in value. Get expert advice on care and maintenance of your antiques or bring your patient to our in-house repair center.
And view old in a whole new way!
