Sign of the Whale Antiques has been in business in the heart of the village of Glen Ellyn, Illinois since 1978. (Glen Ellyn is approximately 25 miles west of Chicago, and easily accessible by interstate highways.) It is a group shop comprised of the following four businesses: Caroline Jacobsen Antiques, Virginia Larsen Antiques, Liberty Tree Antiques, and Kandy Craig Antiques. The owners are Caroline Jacobsen, Virginia and John Larsen,  Barb Lemme, and Kandy Craig.

While each of us operates our own individual antiques business, collectively Sign of the Whale specializes in 19th century American country furniture in pine, cherry, walnut, and painted surfaces, as well as quilts, hooked rugs, lighting, folk art, decoys, early glass, oil paintings, and yellow ware. We strive to offer items of quality to the beginning as well as advanced collector, to dealers, and to those seeking to furnish their homes with antique pieces of merit.

The shop is located at 558 Crescent Boulevard, open Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm; we are closed Wednesday and Sunday.  We are also available by appointment. Our phone number is 630 469-5320. Please feel free to call, or contact us at info@signofthewhaleantiques.com.

In addition to our open shop, Ginny and Barb exhibit at the fall and spring Fox Valley Antiques Shows in St. Charles, Illinois, and Barb exhibits at the spring and fall Country Spirit Shows in Arcola, Illinois, as well as other quality shows. Barb and Ginny are active members of the Chicago Suburban Antiques Dealers Association; Barb is the Recording Secretary and Ginny is Show Co-chair.
