Union Avenue General Store Antique Shop
14314 Union Avenue
The General Store is the oldest antique shop in Orland Park. It has been in business for over 40 years and hosts 20 dealers under one roof. Prior to it being an antique store, it was Loebe Bros. General Merchandise. The original building was four blocks east of its current location on Union Avenue and was moved there about 1879. In 1969, when Stewart Loebe retired, the building was purchased and turned in an antique store.
The General Store's dealers have furniture, collectibles, primitives, glassware, jewelry, picturea, Bric-a-Brac and vintage clothing.
The building still maintains that old world charm and takes you back to by-gone eras.
Pam Benson Antiques & Fine Jewelry opened in 1989. Pam is an earth science geologist and has been in the jewelry business for 30 years.
We pay top prices for gold, platinum, diamonds and sterling. Custom jewelry work and repairs are also done on fine jewelry.

MARY LOU’S CRYSTAL REPAIR
Mary Lou Gates
WE’LL MEND YOUR MEMORIES!
Here is the perfect opportunity for those of you who cherish that special piece of glass, porcelain, or crystal that is chipped or broken, to have it professionally repaired
Crystal Repair is a tedious and time consuming art that has taken Mary Lou 40 years to perfect in her Joliet studio. Through a complete mending procedure with special epoxy glue that is guaranteed for life, Mary Lou can repair breaks and cracks so your glass can still be useful. However, glass or crystal cannot be refired or added to, so you do need to have all the pieces to put the puzzle back together. Bases and stems can be reattached. Spouts can be reshaped. Mary Lou can also help you determine the manufacturer, pattern, and value of your crystal stemware, and find additional pieces for your set through her many resources.
Mary Lou is authorized to repair specialty figurines such as Hummels, Lladros, Lenox and more.
Mary Lou’s work can be found in the National Museum of Archives in Washington, DC and in the Governor’s Mansion of State of Illinois.
The Beacon Hill Antique Shop in the Historic District of Orland Park is the Chicago Southland Drop Off Location for Mary Lou’s Crystal and China Repair Service.
