About Leesburg Antique Emporium
Leesburg Antique Emporium (LAE) is unique in its existence. In “the real world”, it is a cove of treasures from the past, all in search for their forever home. Yet, online, we are a culture, as well as a hub of news and information. Our taste is timeless, classic, and chic, which is reflected in both our content and our boutique.
There is a long story behind LAE. Ida Schiffler inherited it from her loving Grandmother. She grew up playing hide-and-seek amongst the store’s oddities and collectibles, and later worked there as a teenager. Ida’s passion in life was staying up on all the latest styles, trends, and information. With a Master’s in communications and a Bachelor’s in design, she launched a professional career by combining her two passions. But when Grandma Molly passed away at 94 years-old, Ida knew exactly what she had to do with the shop.By linking the past with the future, she is redefining the now.
