WICHITA — A new antique mall is opening in the former Delano Antique Mall, which closed late last year, at 1642 W. Douglas. That's about six blocks west of Seneca.
"It's going to be a little more upscale than before," Lee Tippen says of the new Antique Gallery in Delano.
Tippen previously co-owned Paradise Antiques, which he says he closed when he sold the property.
At 13,000 square feet, the Delano space is three times the size Paradise was.
"We've totally rehabbed it," Tippen says. "I think we've put about 55 gallons of paint inside."
So far, he says he has about 60 percent of the space filled with new vendors.
