Red Gate carries a selection of vintage musical instruments & antiques. Red Gate has a collection of antique and collectible items that includes vintage and contemporary North Carolina Pottery, original paintings, some small furniture, steel and lithographed tin toys, Fiesta and Russel Wright dinnerware, some furniture and more. And we have a fine selection of Gibson, Martin and other good quality guitars plus a few banjos, mandolins and an acoustic bass fiddle or two. There are strings, cases, capos and tuners (nice gifts) and we buy, sell and/or trade and appraise stringed instruments.
The sign says Open when possible. We try to be there from 11am until 4pm or 5pm but my music performance commitments take precedence over my storekeeping ones. It’s a good idea to call before you come to make sure I will be there. And I will be happy to make an appointment to suit the client’s schedule.
