What better venue for an antique shop than a house built in 1891? Located on First Street in Downtown Benicia and specializing in primitives from the mid 1800’s to early 1900’s, Blue Goose Antiques is much more than meets the eye, primarily because it’s owned by Marge Delmas. “Everybody that comes through that door is really special,” she said. “Even if they don’t buy anything, it’s just a treat for me every time they come in, even if just to visit and talk.” And you’ll find plenty of conversation starters from the moment you arrive. Most of the primitives at Blue Goose Antiques come from the New England states on the east coast, as there aren’t too many artifacts from those days here in California. Except, of course, the Blue Goose house itself! As a repeat winner of our Best Retailer category, Blue Goose Antiques have established themselves as a go-to spot for some very rare finds, attracting customers from all over the state and beyond. “It’s a nice atmosphere in here,” said Marge. “People pull up chairs, sit down and just start visiting. People I don’t even know! I just want them all to know that I really do appreciate them.” So pay Marge and her husband Dave a visit sometime soon, Thursdays-Sundays 10:30am-5:30pm, and check out some of their latest early American discoveries.
