Find treasures at Rich Man Poor Man
 A worldwide collectors' destination
Rich Man Poor Man is open after a nine-week closure period earlier this year due to
the Covid-19 virus. We are most thankful to the many customers new and current that have returned to the store.
Our Pet friendly stores are destinations for vintage and antique collectors from all over the United States and the world. “We have reg- ular customers from everywhere,” said JoAnna Crebs, who owns the business with her husband Myles.
“Our visitors are from every- where in the US and from other countries like Australia, China and European countries. One couple, visiting from Holland, told me they came in on the recommendation of their friends in Holland!” We will be glad when our foreign customers return after the global restrictions due to the virus are lifted.
Fifty dealers fill two separate buildings that are just steps from one another on Cambria’s Main Street
In the Redwood Center. Both stores are easily reached from centralized parking. Most of the vendors spe- cialize in antiques but vintage and collectibles, art and pottery are still to be found.
Jewelry, furniture, decor, clocks, books, toys, table settings, coins, sports memorabilia, tools, Native American, and western collections, Tommy Bahama Hawaiian shirts, and crystal are all there. Rich Man Poor Man Dealers are “some of the
best and most experienced dealers in the business.” There is even an outdoor patio section in both stores dedicated to garden furnishing and decor.
Both stores have fabulous art- work from U.S. and foreign artists. The artwork spans the early histori- cal periods and also mid-century.
A special man cave offers a wide selection of “mantiques.” Gas and oil memorabilia, old oil cans, knives, oil field porcelain signs, vintage bicycles and vintage and antique military items are some of the collections found in the mantique room.
Art collectors can find works by artists like Ralph Costantino and other prominent mid-century art- ists, local artists and famous Ameri- can and foreign artists. Pottery collectors will find Mid Century Art Pottery, Roseville pottery, California
artist pottery, and more-aptly named “Big John’s Man Cave.”
A Central Coast fixture for over 30 years, Rich Man Poor Man is open every day except Christmas Day. With two restaurants serving
breakfast and lunch just steps away, shoppers and browsers can take a break to refuel then get right back to the shops.
“We’ve been told that our store is the friendliest and most fun to visit,” said Crebs. “If we don’t have what you are looking for we can probably find it.” Most items can be delivered to customers anywhere in California. The inventory is constantly changing. The Rich Man Poor Man website is filled with tantalizing photographs of “I’ve been looking all over for that!” But, ”that” might not be there when you get there. Call the store to claim it!
