I’m a big fan of antique stores but many have little to offer other than old plates and silverware pilfered from tag sales. I’m always on the lookout for fun Akron-realted items and there are many in the area that I plan to cover, but the first I would like to highlight is Silver Eagle in Cuyahoga Falls in the Riverfront District.

They specialize in sports memorabilia, so you’re a big Tribe fan you will find a special section with all the collectibles your heart desires. This is a big shop with many rooms filled with memories from years past, including a fun pennant from Euclid Beach Park, history books on Akron and Summit County, as well as ancient Akron photos and postcards.

There are plenty of odds and ends, including a large display of toasters, some with blue ribbons from some kind of toaster competition (I think) and a weird portrait of Bill Clinton, both of which are pictured above.

My favorite find has to be a triangular board game called Akronopoly. I almost picked it up, but like much of the available stock, it’s just a little overpriced. If you decide to make the purchase please let me know!

Give yourself some time to explore and make sure you call to double-check the hours.

    I grew up playing the Akronopoly board game –I don’t know what version you saw at the store but my family’s game (from like 1981, I would guess) has tons of businesses that are now gone. Very old school Akron. Though you may doubt me, it’s not as much fun buying local dry cleaning businesses as it is buying the classic Atlantic City properties.

    But that same antiques store on the Riverfront sold me my vintage ‘Planet of the Apes’ board game a few years back. A great place to look around.
