Great find
2019年11月
We stopped in both shops when in Galena.
My husband loves books and I am a junker so we were both happy.
visited with one of the sellers , she had great items in her area, well displayed and items were well marked , there were things that I had never seen before and learned some new things. Metal shoe form, walnut picker upper !!! many signs and book presses. Talked to the owner, friendly and knows what he is doing , displays were great , interesting items, something for everyone. Fun to browse and spend time with out pressure to buy.

More books than there are in the local library
2018年8月 • 夫妻情侣
I love books. I read four books at a time. I have one library in my den that contains nothing by Civil War books. I am a historian of the Civil War. The other library in our house contains all of our other books...World War II, biography, Hollywood, sports, ancient history, Western history. No fiction. So whenever and wherever my wife and I travel, we seek out bookstores, especially bookstores that offer rare books. I'm always looking out for a Civil War book that I don't have. So it figured that we would spend a lot of time during our recent three-day hiatus in historic Galena, Illinois, at the two Peace of the Past book stores. They have large Civil War collections and over 30,000 books, more than in the Galena Public Library. The store at 217 North Main Street has antiques and books. I purchased a book on the first day of the battle of Gettysburg and a book at General Eisenhower's War Years. At the 408 South Main Street store, which is all books, all subjects, I uncovered three books--George Patton, Joe DiMaggio and Appomattox, the nine April days. It is a very well organized store. Ask and ye shall find what you're looking for. For me, it's always fun (but it takes a lot of patience, which I sometimes don't have) to just browse from shelf to shelf to see if I can find a book that I wasn't looking for but was pleasantly surprised that I found. LIke a book on George Thomas, the Rock of Chickamauga, or a lengthy book on the Big Red One, the U.S. Army's First Infantry Division of World War II, my father's outfit.

Books at one, stuff at the other
2018年7月 • 夫妻情侣
First, I'm a book guy. Like others, I've got a couple shelves of books upstairs, another couple downstairs. And if I shop too often at one of the Peace of the Past stores (can't remember which carries mostly books) I'll need another shelf.

They've got a decent section on the Civil War, which is all I had time to look for. But I like their selection, and it seems like they have a fair turnover, as I find new books I want to buy each year. They had about twelve on the floor they were getting ready to put on the shelves. If they can find room.

Owner is friendly, and keeps the place well organized. He wasn't pushy, but gave help when I asked questions. I believe they had written that they have 30,000 books, and the local library has 18,000. That's pretty impressive.

If we go back to Galena, we'll go back to this store.

Just love Babar the Elephant, especially capturing the art of all the works. Peace of Mind has a terrific selection of all types of surprises, love to make it a regular stop when I get back to town. Books are definitely one of there specialties. Great selection for children too.

Nice to see appreciation for things of the past
2017年10月 • 夫妻情侣
Nice antique shop was very busy the day we stopped in. That you don't usually see much these days, but Galena is such a great town and very busy with visitors that they have a great location and are very lucky to have the foot traffic so desired at many other shops. Prices a little high, to me, but I am a veteran at this and the location helps tremendously. Good to see appreciation for the well loved things of the past!

All for plenty of time to browse and browse some more
2017年8月
There are two locations for Peace of the Past antique stores in Galena, Illinois. It figures. When Bill Karberg opened up his original store in 1992, he didn't dream it would become the success that it has. So he opened another. Visit both of them, at 408 South Main Street and 217 North Main Street, located at both ends of Galena's bustling shopping district, and you're bound to find something that you're looking for, something that will look attractive or be a conversation piece in your living room or den or library. Peace of the Past is an antique store that displays interesting antiques and collectibles that are surrounded by 30,000 used or rare books, pottery, jewelry, artwork, albums and primitives. Over the years, I've found five or six Civil War and World War II books to add to my extensive collection. It's just fun and worth the time to just browse and see what you can discover.

Antiques
2015年12月 • 夫妻情侣
We have purchased a few pieces from the past that have turned into conversation pieces in our home. We have picked up an old (1920's) chest of drawers that we now have in our bathroom as a vanity - added a vessel sink. We saw an old piano stool that I loved. After we made it back home I regretted not getting it. My husband had it shipped to me for a surprise and it looks great by our fireplace. Each time, I think I will not find anything but then always leave with something.

Great place to browse.
2015年10月 • 好友
Peace of the Past has 2 stores in Galena. Both are worth taking a little time to look around. My daughter and I love this type of place. My daughter was real pleased to find a book she had been looking for for quite some time. Whenever we are back in this area we will stop in again. The people there are knowlegable and friendly.
