“By far the best antique mall I’ve found in Florida. … There’s a good mix of every era in here … from all the way back in the 1800’s to [more] modern day items. They have tons of furniture, glassware, knick-knacks and collectibles.” – Rachel F. about Wildwood Antique Mall of Lakeland

History

Wildwood Antique Malls come from humble but proud beginnings. In 2011, the then-77-year-old Manny Pesco took the $4,000 he had left after his auction company was driven out of business by the 2008 Great Recession, and invested the money into the very first Wildwood Antique Mall.

Thanks to Manny’s leap of faith, today Wildwood Antique Malls are flourishing. In 2017 alone, the locations combined did more than $4.5 million in gross sales.
