We are often asked about our name -- Pieces of Eight.  When the store was first opened, we offered antiques and gifts.  We used the slogan "Treasures Old & New" to describe the offerings of the store. The idea of treasures, combined with the fact that we are a family of eight led to our naming the business "Pieces of Eight".

Our store hours are Monday through Friday:  9:30-5:30; Saturday:  9:30-5:00 (Saturdays in June, July, August:  9:30-4:00); Sundays in December only:  1:00-5:00.
