HAMPTON FALLS — After decades of storing eclectic antiques at his Route 1 site in Hampton Falls, Jeremiah Pasternak is downsizing, selling his storage units and his unique cache of goodies at an online auction closing 8 p.m. Friday. 

“There are 180 items listed, some I or my (late) father paid thousands for, that are going for as little as $1,” said Jeremiah Pasternak, owner of Pasternak Antiques. “I’ll always be in the business, but the market has changed so much in the last few years that I’ll be doing a lot less.”

Pasternak’s late father, Jerry, began the family business buying and selling antiques, vintage and collectible items in the 1970s in various Seacoast locations. His son, Jeremiah, grew up in the business, joining him in the search and sale of some amazing things. For years, a drive along Route 1 in Hampton Falls included passing Pasternak Antiques’ 97 Lafayette Road location.

Jeremiah Pasternak is closing Pasternak Antiques on Route 1 in Hampton Falls. He is hosting an online auction this week to sell off the many goods inside. One of his favorites is a baseball glove sofa.

Usually so packed with items they overflowed outside the storefront, the multiple units in the building were mainly used for storage, said Pasternak. However, people could drop in by appointment, or to pick up items Pasternak sold online.

Specializing in mid-century modern items that are now very much in fashion again, a person could be amused for hours just looking at some of the sports, toys, furniture, household and ketch merchandise the father-son team bought and sold.
