Established in 1995
Susan and Joe Steffen loved going to farm auctions in the Chicago area and soon had way too much great old stuff crowding their home. So they started in the business by renting a small space in an Antiques Mall which soon escalated to their being in 4 Malls.
After Joe’s retirement, they moved back to the Bay Area and with the help of their son,Tim Taylor, opened their first retail store, The Steffen Collection, in 2001 in Martinez, Calif.
Joe and Susan tried retirement for a couple of years, but felt drawn back to the business. So in Oct. 2010 Joe, Susan and Tim reopened The Steffen Collection in Martinez.
Joe, Susan and Tim moved the store, which is now located at 627 First St., Benicia, effective July 4, 2012. It is good to be doing business where we live. But we will miss all our wonderful friends and customers in Martinez.
Please come and see us in Benicia!
