After over 30 years in Downtown Tacoma, the owners of Lily Pad Antiques are retiring.
Tom and Kendra Frogges have owned and operated the antique toy store for 31 years. The store is filled with a collection of antiques and collectibles that the two have collected over the years. There’s not an empty counter or wall left in the store.
As we stopped by to chat with the Frogges, Tom mentioned some of his favorite memories. One being, Dale Chihuly coming in and asking to buy every toy truck in the store. $5,000 worth.
But for both of them, nothing can beat the customer turned friends they’ve met throughout the years.
The Frogges have been a part of Downtown Tacoma’s change and growth over the years. Now, they are passing the store on to a longtime friend and customer, Clarence Acosta. Friends with the Frogges for over 30 years, Clarence is excited to be taking over the store at the end of this month. We are excited to welcome Clarence to the Downtown Tacoma community!
