ABOUT THE OWNER
Hi, my name is Eric Bausworth and I am the owner of Old Time Finds in High Ridge, MO. I am a proud Dad of two amazing kids, Melanie & Josh. My wife, Michelle and I had always dreamed of owning a small business. On February 1, 2020, we were finally able to fulfill that dream and bought our first business together. Unfortunately, one month later Michelle lost her battle with cancer. With the support of family and friends, I made the decision to push forward and pursue that dream.
By mid-March we were forced to close the stores for 6-weeks due to the COVID 19 Pandemic. Old Time Finds is all about doing the right thing and we hope that is always reflected in both stores. We were able to keep all our Vendors in place by not charging them rent.
Old Time Finds is known for our friendliness, knowledge, and superb customer service which would not be possible without our great Sales Associates, Vendors and Volunteers that are always willing to step-up when the need presents itself.
The store would not be able to function daily without the backbone of the store, my mom. Most of you know her as "Mamma Bear" aka Paula Bausworth. In addition, I also have support from Michelle's sister (my partners) Debbie Dudley and her husband Steve along with many of Michelle’s siblings and nieces.
I have always loved antiques, vintage, retro, crafts, and repurposed items. I personally feel it's better to share knowledge & talent with others and not just make money in selling product which is why I added a classroom/workshop area to the store that can be used by anyone at any time to explore & share their creativity!
Our goal is to have a place for customers to come hang out and shop in a stress-free atmosphere!
ABOUT THE STORE

Our smaller store is approximately 1,500 square feet and houses 30+ Vendors. In addition, this location accommodates our in-house Auctioneer and Appraiser.
At Old Time Finds, we take pride in our
hospitality AND customer service! You will be
welcomed at the front door by a Sales Associate with a hello and a friendly smile. We have fresh coffee, refreshments, clean restrooms, and candy bowls always filled for the sweet tooth.
Here at Old Time Finds we are committed to building our success from friendly service and quality antiques, vintage, and collectibles at affordable prices. With new arrivals daily, the only thing constant is the change. There is literally "something for everyone" with the eclectic array of changing merchandise.
ABOUT THE VENDORS
Our Valued Vendors are what sets us apart from other antique malls! Our Vendors love Old Time Finds as much as we do. They are committed to hunting down the best finds for filling their booths and are personal shoppers for our customers.
The Vendors at Old Time Finds have huge hearts, are very loyal, and provide support when it comes to helping me with any of the crazy ideas that come to mind to make Old Time Finds a wonderful, unique place to shop.
Having a Vendor Family that is so committed to this business can be seen and enjoyed throughout both stores.
Without our Valued Vendors . . . there would be no Old Time Finds!
