Leftovers Antiques Brings Business Together
Antiques are what brought the business partners together. Michael Breddin is a fifth-generation Washington County native who has been in the antiques business in Brenham for 25 years. Ed Fulkerson, who began his career as an accountant for Ernst and Young, was the general manager of Homestead in Fredericksburg before setting out on his own to do shows including many in the Round Top area.
While Ed and Michael search the world over to source their antiques and gift items, they claim Brenham as their home. A decade ago they opened their store just west of Brenham on Highway 290 to provide high visibility and easy access. Brenham is ideally situated. It’s located between Austin and Houston near the birthplace of Texas. The rolling hills, ever-changing wildflowers and wide variety of events and attractions make Brenham the perfect place for a day trip or a weekend in the country.
These days our customers become family. Young, old and in-between—they come from around the corner and around the globe. We enjoy meeting new people and staying connected with customers who have turned into friends over the years.
Staff members pay close attention to customers and always concentrate on filling their needs. Whether they work full-time or part-time, our priceless staffers come with their own special talents. For many of them this is a second career, so they’re bringing incredible insight with them.
The delightful array of quality merchandise, superlative service and the curated country ambiance keeps customers coming back for more. Recently, the team completed a 7,500 square foot expansion bringing the store’s footprint to 17,500 square feet.
With the addition of two more showrooms, plus a loading dock and warehouse, the Leftovers team has everything in one location. The warehouse offers our extra furniture inventory. It’s organized so it can be viewed on-site. Now, if you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for in the showroom, the perfect piece might be waiting for you in the warehouse.
While Leftovers began as a retail destination, it has evolved into a lifestyle.
