When Centuries Past owner Carol Gould was decorating her first few homes she leaned toward "trendy" and ended up with a hodgepodge of furniture that never really meshed. Then one evening she and her husband went to a true antique auction in New Orleans and that was it! The workmanship, style, and beauty of true antique pieces made her see the error of her ways.

When she retired and returned to her hometown of New Braunfels in 2010 she decided to open a small antique shop of her own — Centuries Past Antiques and Gifts in New Braunfels, Texas — with the goal of providing beautiful but functional antique furniture and accessories for the stylish homes and vacation get-a-ways of today.

Carol hand-selects each piece for style and to ensure a variety of price points. Come visit and see what's new in the store today!
