Have you been out to High Desert’s Cadillac Antiques yet? The address is 32090 State Hwy. 18 in Lucerne Valley. Owners Ralph and Patty Muldoon and David and Charlene Guertin will be celebrating the shop’s first anniversary on July 4th.
High Desert Bloggers, a meetup.com group, met at the antique shop on May 2, 2015. Beginning the morning meetup over a grandeur breakfast provided by co-owner Patty, the bloggers were eager to find out about the vintage store’s beginning. Patty was a gracious hostess and was happy to answer all of our questions.
“What made you want to open an antique shop?” I asked.
“We were all collectors,” she said. “Really it’s about the building. The past owner passed away. We just loved the building and talked to the owner’s daughter and decided to buy it and turn it into an antique store.”
Ralph and Patty are from LA and are new to Lucerne Valley (and love it), and David and Charlene are from Victorville. Patty said, “We wanted to come out to Lucerne Valley to live.”
The Cadillac Antiques building is beautiful. Spotting an antique car in the spacious parking lot, you’ll know you have arrived. Greeted by the friendly owners as you enter the shop, there is a feeling of cozy ambiance.
This is an antique store the ladies can bring their husbands to. It’s definitely a vintage shop for both ladies and gents. There is a man cave!
More exciting things are on the horizon for this vintage shop in the desert. The owners have plans for vintage car cruises, “Cars and Cruises” with coffee and cinnamon rolls.
