Store specializes in jewelry, glass

Grunwald Antiques has been serving the Geneva area since 1962. Its high quality specialties are estate jewelry, (especially silver), enamels and glass products.

Marge Shepard has been a Grunwald employee for 17 years and said that Geneva has kept the quaintness that antique stores need. About Grunwald Antiques she adds, “We aren’t a typical flea market – we’re better.”

Over the years Mr. Grunwald, the store’s owner, has built “a nice, steady clientele,” and most people come into the shop already knowing what they’re looking for, Shepard said.

In fact, Illinois Governor Jim Thompson is a regular Grunwald customer as well as a friend of Mr. Grunwald himself.
