The Carriage Trade
The term, "carriage trade" refers to the wealthier members of society. It is natural then, that this store, called The Carriage Trade, is the proud purveyor of quality goods.
The store is very large, and features used furniture of all kinds, as well as knickknacks and paintings, etc. We haven't been inside for awhile, but it used to have a hair salon and a restaurant on the second floor.
Some of their furniture is of the antique variety, but all of it is solid and substantial and fairly costly.
We've shopped here on several occasions, but have yet to make a purchase.
I have no idea why some furniture has been moved out front on the sidewalk.
