June 12th in Seal Beach History

On this date in 1966, the Long Beach Independent Press-Telegram ran this classified ad for Audrey’s Antiques. 

The Audrey who posted this ad was the now departed and much missed Audrey Peters. For many families and Seal Beach visitors, a stroll down Main Street wasn’t complete without a least a few minutes browsing through inside her shop jammed with a variety of curios, jewelry, furniture, and other momentos from earlier times.

Most people remember Audrey’s Antiques at 132 Main Street (with the waist-high “Audrey’s Antiques” sign set just outside the door inviting those strolling pedestrians to step inside), where the shop did business for years. That location is now occupied by Joie De Vivre, a boutique gift shop.

This ad was for an earlier Audrey’s Antiques location at 827A Ocean Avenue where Fresh Cut Creative now resides.

It’s disappointing, but it appears there are no photos of Audrey’s Antiques at either location.
