Ark Antiques is a 501(C)3 nonprofit dedicated to the benefit of animal welfare charities and to raising awareness for humane causes in the community. The Ark’s mission is to support these goals by selling quality donated and consigned merchandise, enabling it to award grants to animal charities.
An efficient staff is supported by many dedicated and caring volunteers, the lifeblood of the organization, who generously give of their time so that Ark Antiques may achieve its mission. Through teamwork, The Ark has been able to grant more than $1.6 million to local, qualified animal charities.
With more than 6,000 square feet, The Ark’s retail store in La Jolla provides a significant service to consignors and tax benefits to donors. Building on a 40-year tradition, The Ark’s beautifully arranged displays create an atmosphere of understated elegance by dramatically highlighting fine antiques, distinctive furnishings and decorative accessories. Selective in the broad inventory, an experienced committee chooses pieces with character that are consistent in quality to complement the eclectic décor.
Best-selling items include fine and costume jewelry, furniture, paintings and prints. Ark Antiques also has a large selection of Asian antiques, sterling, crystal, china, rugs and mirrors. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday; visit Arkantiques.org.
As The Ark team sails forward, they proudly present a new logo representing their journey from the past to the future. They look forward to the upcoming Overflow Sale on Oct. 24 and 25, which will allow them to replenish the store with an exciting variety of distinctive items, including many with a modern flair!
