Old Tampa can be hard to see these days. But she’s there. And if you look closely – past the tourists and the on ramps for the interstate – you can see her.
She’s on in years, but every bit as lovely as before, from her stately art deco historic districts, to the rough-hewn cigar factories of Ybor City. And while old Tampa is slowly yielding to the steel and polished glass of the 21st century, we’re here to make sure it doesn’t vanish for good.
At Alafia Architectural Antiques, our passion is saving the most beautiful parts of Tampa’s past so that they may live again in your home or property. From artful, hammered-tin ceilings to intricate cornice work, we preserve and restore the best parts of Old Tampa. Our ever-changing collection contains antiques and architectural salvage from residential and commercial buildings throughout Florida.
We invite you to visit us and be inspired by the beauty of a gentler, bygone age.
