Description[edit | edit source]

The Todds' antique shop was owned by Philip and Megan Todd and was located in the village district of the town of Collinsport, Maine. The Todds moved to Collinsport and opened up their shop in the winter of 1969.

In a desperate bid to end the horror of Jeb Hawkes forever, Barnabas Collins waited until Jeb was inside his transformation room and then poured gasoline all about the shop and set it on fire. Fortunately for Jeb, he managed to get away. Megan later commented that she was glad that the shop burned to the ground. [1][2]

Notes & Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The antique shop was never provided with any actual proper name. The filigree on the front window read only "Antiques".
  • Among the various wares that found at the shop, potential buyers might interest themselves in: An oil lamp once owned by author Herman Melville; a wall-mounted clock with a broken pendulum and a landscape painting by Victorian-era artist Charles Delaware Tate. [3]
