CENTURY 20 ANTIQUES
72
Raritan Ave., Highland Park, 732.249.1345
Owners John Costanza and Rob Giarretta met
15
years ago at an antique cigarette lighter
show and formed a quick friendship. They started
buying and selling antiques together on a small
scale and recently decided to leave their
careers in finance and construction, respectively,
and open their own shop. There you can find
art, jewelry, coins, cameras, cuff links, pocket
watches and a large collection of cigarette
lighters and pipes, all packed into 450 square
feet. They believe the shop is thriving because
of their youth and enthusiastic attitude toward
the business, not to mention the fact that many
Baby Boomers are downsizing. “It’s fun doing
research on the things we buy and handling
something rare and old,” Giarretta says. Maybe
Century 20 Antiques will want your eight-track
player that’s been collecting dust in the attic.
