Ten Pin Antiques in Carlyle IL!


Ten Pin Antiques is monument to the past, and we really mean it! This massive antique mall was home to the Ten Pin Bowling Alley in the 1960’s, but in May of 2014 it was transformed into “a smorgasbord of antiques, art, crafts, refurbished items, and collectibles”. Despite its renovation, signs of the vintage bowling alley still remain. A well-noted feature is the wide bowling lanes that now make up the floor, as well as the old bowling monitors that serve as security cameras. The historic bar has also remained intact, so visitors can stop by to reminisce about the old days!

With over 50 vendors in the Ten Pin, there’s something for everyone as each vendor has something vintage, refurbished, shabby chic, or unique. With all these choices, it’s easy to see how the 11,000 sq ft space fills up- guests comment on how the space itself is a sight to see! Check out the Ten Pin page on Facebook for updates on new merchandise like a unique “Corner Curio Hutch” or quality, vintage cast iron cookware. As well as vintage and turn-of-the-century items, there’s also modern gifts such as hand tooled wallets, emoji pillows, and “Fornite Monopoly”!

Ten Pin Antique Mall is also keeping up with a fast moving society with the introduction of a barcode system for vendors to use. This keeps things running smoothly and gets customers home with their treasures sooner. Ten Pin has also announced plans for an online store, so even out-of-state folks can find something unique- keep an eye on their social media for updates about this exciting new development!
