Flyin' Lion Antiques And Collectibles Opens In Sidney


Arch Ellwein invites everyone to stop by his new store, Flyin' Lion Antiques and Collectibles in the Yellowstone Marketplace, Sidney.

Flyin'Lion Antiques and Collectibles is open in the Yellowstone Marketplace, downtown Sidney, MT. Full of fascinating items from the past, the store is a must see for antique and history buffs alike.

Owner Arch Ellwein, well known local broadcaster and actor, has spent a lifetime collecting historic and unusual pieces, often as props for his theatrical performances. Many of those pieces are now for sale in his new shop.

Sports memorabilia, small furniture, toys, books, magazines, posters and historical items fill the space and Ellwein has a story about each item. The store is very well stocked and items change day to day. Ellwein listens to his customers, what they collect, what their interests are, and tries to fulfill their needs and wants. He encourages customers to ask for specific items since he may have them, just not in the store at the time. He is also open to buying items although he says they would have to be pretty special.

"I opened this store for fun," Ellwein said. "I see an opportunity in Sidney and believe there's a niche to fill. It adds to downtown, especially for visitors."

Every month there is a silent auction with a couple of special items which will sell for whatever the bid ends up to be. Ellwein also plans to have special events such as an appraisal event where up to three appraisers with various expertise will be on hand to value items brought in by the public. He hopes to have the first of those in May.

Ellwein also would like to revitalize Community Theatre in Sidney. All types of people are needed for acting, technical, costuming and props. Anyone interested is encouraged to visit with Ellwein.

Flyin' Lion is open from 10 am to 5 pm with other hours available by appointment. Visit the shop in the Yellowstone Marketplace, or call 406-489-1209.
