Sturgis Antiques & Collectibles

3554 Roland Ave., (410) 262-5383,

OK, so you’re in the market for a Civil War amputation set, a French patisserie pushcart from the 1800s, a pennant commemorating the U.S. border wars with Pancho Villa, an ancient opium-smoking stand, an early 1900s psychiatry exam chair, a “Bambino” tobacco tin celebrating Babe Ruth, and a Globe poster for the 2 Live Crew and Heavy D show at the Atlanta Civic Center in 1987. There’s only one place to go: Sturgis Antiques, where Christian Sturgis’ (guitarist and singer in the punk band Advlts) 15-or-so years of working with private estates has yielded a remarkable range of old-timey stuff for sale, including furniture, artwork, oddities, decorative items, advertising, vintage erotica—just about everything you never knew existed. Going there is like going to a very, very strange museum.
