A message from the owner
My mother Bettie and myself (Bret Woody) launched Woody’s Antiques in 1980 and we have been going strong ever since. We started our business selling unique antiques out of the back of our 56’ Chevy truck. Our first venture was a small rental space located in an antique mall, King Richards in Whittier, CA. During our early years, we were regulars at the Rose Bowl, Pasadena City College and Long Beach Vets Flea Markets. We grew into 5 full spaces over the next 9 years and our cliental increased substantially. It was at that point, we decided it was time to go brick and mortar. Woody’s Antiques store front in the Orange circle was created and where we have stayed the past 32 years. We are unique in the community as we were one of the first shops in Classic Old Town Orange as well as where Tom Hanks Filmed “That Thing You Do!”. This was one of many well know movies filmed in the charming Circle of Orange due to the look and feel of the Era of Old Town Orange. We would love to thank all of our long time customers and our new customers for the continued patronage and support. We hope to continue our love of sharing antiques for many more years to come.
The furniture pieces began to take shape during the assembly process. Joints were glued and screwed; nails were not used at any joints. The insides of all drawers were sprayed with a drawer coater. After the assembly process furniture was sanded in order to blend drawers, tops, and sides together. Following this sanding, Modern pieces were bleached, producing a lighter as well as more uniform wood finish. Next the pieces were spray stained, with any excess stain removed through hand wiping. After pieces were placed in a drying oven, a sanding sealer was applied, and then the pieces further dried. Two coats of finish lacquer were applied, with the finish allowed to bake for approximately one hour. The pieces were then rubbed and waxed. After the pieces had been rubbed, they were wiped dry and polished. The furniture was then given a final inspection and sent to the shipping department for distribution.
