Welcome to the Long Beach Antique Market Blog!

Emerick's Emporium


In 2011 Jonny Emerick, a metal fabricator/custom furniture/gate/handrail...maker (See Emericks Ironworks) and stage manager (See him on the Monster Stage this summer on Warped Tour and other venues throughout the year) met Tia, a personal assistant and nanny to the "stars" (there are celebrities that live here in Long Beach!) at a local Starbucks and married her 3 years later to the day. Their love of buying and selling vintage furniture, housewares, clothes and repurposing metal items into furniture and art started them on a journey of flea market shopping, selling and road trip picking adventures. Even their secret wedding trip to Vegas included a few buying days. 
In the last few years Jonny's Ironworks company has expanded and that left more time for his creative side. From trunk lids made into benches to repurposed mechanic cabinets into end tables. Tia's job has left her a few mornings open during the week for buying appointments and thrifting so you will also find vintage dresses, accessories and household items. Kind of a his and hers booth hence the word Emporium. 
Here are some custom ironwork  pieces

Custom Iron Gate With Panels

The last time they sold at Long Beach Antique Market,  they left with an empty truck. This isn't something they do as a job, they see it as a passion and a joy. 
They will be selling Sunday May 29 at the Special Sale.  Please say hi and find them on instagram  @emericksemporium @emericksironworks @jonnyemerick @mrstiaemerick
