Antiques, history, and a love of decorating make Cedar Street Market Antiques in Abilene, Kansas a destination in itself. On a quiet December day, I had the pleasure of meeting Connie Brunner. A native of Kansas and a transplant to Abilene, she has found a place to share her talents in the beautiful Historic Downtown District in Abilene. Full Disclosure: I did receive compensation for this post and all opinions are mine and nobody else’s.
Connie’s passion for decorating and zest of life were quite evident. As soon as I set foot in her store my attention quickly turned to the fun decor. I, of course, was my usual inquisitive self and wanted to learn about her business. Connie is an interior designer by trade.
Her antique store is a great connection with her passion for interior design. Cedar Street Market Antiques came to fruition and she is happy to be a part of the downtown community of Abilene.

The building that Cedar Street Market Antiques is located in, is loaded with history. The building that Connie’s business is located in, was once owned by Brown Telephone. Once you start looking around the building, it’s evident that some type of utility company was once present.
