About Us

More Than A Store - A Destination!

Originally started in 1994 by Ken and Anita Hess as an herb and antique store, the name HERBS & HEIRLOOMS
was chosen for its reference to the1,000's of herbal products and accessories available
as well as the large selection of antiques and collectibles.

HERBS & HEIRLOOMS quickly became HERBS & HEIRLOOMS and HOMEBREW too! due to the fact that Ken,
being a beer and wine maker, kept jugs and bottles sitting around the store with their contents merrily fermenting.

Customers who had never seen the process of fermentation
(the process of turning water, sugar, yeast and barley or grapes into a alcoholic beverage)
were, to say the least, surprised as to how beer and wine were made.
We were asked if we could help them make their own quality beer & wines at home,
so-o-o, one thing led to another as these things sometimes do and HERBS & HEIRLOOMS and HOMEBREW too! was born.

Our vintage collectibles are dispersed throughout the store so there is an eclectic array of items.
Vintage books, brewerania, religious, new age, metaphysical, spice and herb advertising, etc.

We also have a very large selection of new collectibles and future antiques in stock:
be it a beautiful piece of sterling silver jewelry, a crystal necklace, a statue of an Egyptian goddess,
a finely detailed Asian tea service, or a beautiful as well as functional, mortar and pestle.
Any of these, if given as a gift or purchased for oneself,
will quickly become a personal HEIRLOOM!

Our selection of herbal products and accessories is constantly expanding as are our beer and wine making supplies.

Our mission is to strive hard to understand our customers needs and to work hard to fulfill them.
