Stephanie Rigg wants you to go treasure hunting in Wilmington, OH!

Stephanie Rigg wants you to go treasure hunting in Wilmington, OH!

Where can you find vintage Christmas decorations, a fabulous selection of vinyl for your turntable, football jerseys, antique sterling jewelry, Star Wars collectibles, hunting rifles and tools under one roof?

At Hers & His Thrift Shop on 74 N South St., that’s where!

Stephanie Rigg and her family own and operate the business which just celebrated it’s 5th year anniversary in October. Her two sons are active in the business, and they all provide outstanding customer service as you can see by the reviews on their very active Facebook page. This personalized service includes keeping a notebook of desired rarities for customers and then contacting them personally whenever that item turns up in the shop.

A Destination

“People drive from all over this region to come to the shop and have a look around- from Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and all over Ohio. And then they just fall in love with this town; they love Wilmington!” Stephanie said on our Thursday morning radio show on WALH 106.7 And when they get there, it’s so easy to park on South Street or Locust Street and just walk on over to the store. Leaving is probably the hardest part of their trip (I know it was for me once I discovered the vintage vinyl department)!

Historical Building

“We just fell in love with this building!” she said about the circa 1900 structure that once was a Five-and-Dime. Stephanie is obviously a lover of history and was thrilled to have Mrs. Sheeter visit her and show her a photograph of she and her husband in front of the five and dime they proudly owned and operated. And now the Rigg family carries on the tradition!

 

Resellers for collectibles

They are not a consignment shop, they buy inventory outright and resell it. Stephanie is always on the lookout for unique collectibles and vintage finds. They are happy to take a look at collections, and many people contact them through Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter. Some even send photos of their collections for sale so The Riggs can decide if it’s right for their shop. They do ask that people not bring clothing shoes or books- those are best donated to Goodwill or a favorite charity.

Unique Treasures

When asked about some of her unique finds, Stephanie told us about a hand-carved Victorian rocking chair that converted into a stroller, then into a walker. “I’d never seen anything like it before, or since.” Her son described to me an original Andy Warhol-designed album cover for the Velvet Underground- you know, the one with the banana. “It still had the original yellow banana sticker on it which makes it quite valuable.”
