The store pioneered new territory in Solvang by introducing world-class merchandise into a marketplace traditionally geared towards inexpensive products. They proved without a doubt that it was possible to draw sophisticated buyers to Solvang from every corner of the globe.

The Solvang Antique Center was located in the Old Mill Shops Building from 1990 to 2012. Dwight and Arlene Steffensen purchased Solvang Antiques in 2010 with ambitious plans to build on the legacy of this much loved business. Moving the showroom just around the corner to the heart of the city on Copenhagen Drive, Solvang Antiques was recognized as one of the finest antique collectives in the country and continued to amaze visitors and clients alike with their emphasis on fine art, and antique, vintage and estate jewelry.
