Lee is Back at This & That Collectibles in White Sulphur Springs!

White Sulphur Springs’ residents continue to embrace the movement toward a livable, walkable, and vibrant downtown. Following the June 23rd flood in the summer of 2016, WSS officials began developing a comprehensive plan to revitalize the town. Today, the town is experiencing its own invigoration with more places to dine and shop.

Some places worth visiting include Barnwood Living’s showroom where you can shop home furniture accents and designs; Sweet Cedar Soap Company, which offers local springwater soaps, bath and body products; Mountaineer Guns, a resourceful sporting goods store; and 50 East Casual Dining and Spirits, a hometown restaurant that underwent extensive damage following the flood yet heated up their grills days after the disaster to feed the community, volunteers, and anyone who was hungry. Between June 25-July 9, they served 10,000 meals.

A few new establishments in the town include Road Hog’s BBQ, Sugar Bear’s Toy Store, The Local Wine Shop, Hammer Cycles, ACE Hardware (opening soon), and the new but not new This & That Collectibles. All of these places share a commonality which is to see the people of WSS thrive.

Inside This & That Collectibles, you will find anything and everything from A-Z.

Inside This & That Collectibles, you will find anything and everything from A-Z.  Owned and operated by Lee Bricker, this shop carries thousands of items including antiques, Nascar memorabilia, a large assortment of Mattel Hot Wheels cars, novelties, framed art, antiques, pocket knives, toys, home décor, dinnerware, comics, hats, games, vintage cereal boxes, a motorcycle, vintage beer cans, dolls, various baseball cards, slippers, shoes, shirts, coins, books, and so much more.

A tradition that dates back to 1956.

Behind all the items in the shop is a tradition that dates back to 1956, when Lee first started collecting memorabilia at the age of 16. Lee is a retired Vietnam Air Force veteran, serving 23 years and he has been in the antiques and collectibles industry since 1977. Today, he is 80 and says he still loves it. Before establishing himself in WSS, Lee lived and ran a collectibles store in Clovis, New Mexico for 33 years.

This & That Collectibles originally opened in 2010 and closed following the 2016 flood. Following the closure, Lee moved to Roanoke, VA. He recently came back to White Sulphur Springs and reopened the shop in the downtown district on June 1st 2020. He is thrilled for the store to be re-established and he invites you to visit. He tells us, “This is an A-Z shop. People tell me they love the variety. They don’t see shops like this anywhere.” He goes onto say his favorite place to dine out is Cook’s Country Kitchen in Hart’s Run noting they serve the “best breakfast” in the area and his favorite dinner is the chicken.

Lee takes advantage of the walkable and vibrant downtown.

At 80 years young, Lee takes advantage of the walkable and vibrant downtown. He tells us he walks from his store to The Greenbrier Hotel daily, about a 2-mile journey. WSS is experiencing a downtown invigoration. The comprehensive plan created in 2016 is alive and well and very much in progress.

Make time for an afternoon to visit This & That and many of your locally-owned restaurants and shops. Near future plans for the town include a local coffee and café open around Thanksgiving.

This & That Collectibles is open daily except Sunday. The shop is located across from Bella Italy at 780 E. Main Street. For more information, stop-in or call Lee at 304-237-1671.
