Shore Antique Center 

"Where the Dealers Shop"

Chris & Rose Myer have more than 60 years of combined experience in the field of antiques and fine art.  They warmly welcome you to discover the culmination of all their love for the business - displayed in a most enjoyable spectacle they like to call: The SHORE ANTIQUE CENTER.


After 18 years in Point Pleasant Beach, Shore Antique Center has moved to historic Allenhurst, New Jersey.  The new location is a 14,000-square-foot renovated warehouse located at 413 Allen Avenue.   Chris Myer, founder and proprietor of Shore Antique Center, and his wife, Rose O'Connor-Myer, purchased the building in November 2007 and have done extensive renovations to the former plumbing supply warehouse.

The building features wide open spaces, abundant natural light from original skylights, and hardwood floors. There are three overhead doors and loading docks located on various sides of the building for easy access to move larger pieces in and out.   Additionally, home delivery is available.


Shore Antique Center features more than 40 merchants with a wide variety of antiques, art, home furnishings, and other items of collectible interest. Some of the exhibitors and vendors come from the former Point Pleasant Beach location (including: Glenn Hart, Glenn Vogel, Barbara Booz, Cress Vail) . Others are new, including Laurie Smith who features Vintage Fashion, Lori Zimmermann  (www.lots-of-lots.com) who specializes in historical paper including post cards & travel ephemera, Fred Davies who offers a vast collection of Sports Memorabilia, and Ken Jakupko who sells antique jewelry, art, lighting & unique objects from around the world (www.kensantiques.com).


The Myers manage the center in addition to operating their own amazing array of fine art, furniture and collectibles. Rose O'Connor-Myer is president of Art Research Associates, a fine art appraisal service for paintings, sculpture, and prints of all periods.  Chris and Rose offer periodic free appraisal clinics at the center that are announced through their client (e)mailing list and through this web site.
