Marion's best kept secret for gifts, antiques, collectibles, and TOYS! 


Welcome to

Treasure Chest Collectibles!

Going out of Business.  Closing forever so the Store can become The Marion Maid-Rite.  OPEN MAY 20-30, 2020, 10-4 pm daily and BY APPOINTMENT (319) 270-1340 (text to make an appointment).  OPEN ALL TEN DAYS!  We are NOT BUYING ANYTHING–only selling!  Everything 50% off ticket price.  Please wear PPE if you want to, and no more than eight or nine other people in the store at one time please, depending upon if one or two of the owners are present.


Treasure Chest Collectibles has been in business 20 years, and February 2 marked 8 years as “us,” Ruthie and Bryan Dolezal, as the owners


Often referred to as another “Antique Shop“, we beg to differ.  We are a COLLECTIBLES STORE!  While we do indeed have SOME items found in traditional antique stores, we have such a broad array of items that we break the mold of “traditional” antique OR resale stores.  Antique, vintage, modern, and brand new covers the age range of the items we carry;  and unique, fun, quality, clean, desired, inspiring, treasured, useful, reminiscent, decorative, beautiful, and COLLECTIBLE are just a few of the words that describe the types of items we carry.


From young to old, male or female…we have something for you!

TREASURE CHEST COLLECTIBLES is ‘that place’….the one you can come and feel the warmth and love your memories from your cherished childhood, dream of days you imagine in your mind, or perhaps hang out with your ‘group’ and enjoy our store in YOUR own way;

many people experience our store in touching ways……..

some breeze in and out….

some walk on by and never realize what they just missed….

others converse about how glad they are they DIDN’T walk on by……

truth is…… there is a little bit of magic inside our TREASURE CHEST.  

Truth be told, if YOU did not see it when YOU walked through or walked on by…..

then we invite you to COME ON IN, look a few minutes, and we assure you, YOU WILL find something that will make you laugh, smile, bring a tear to your eye, or just amaze you.  

And, perhaps, if nothing else, just perhaps, you will learn something new while stepping inside the collection of treasures, and make some great memories, make a memory to treasure for a lifetime, and hopefully find a treasured gift from our chest to take with you.


We are located in Uptown Marion, Iowa

in the historic Owen Block Building….

one of the oldest buildings in the downtown area,

built in the 1880s or 1890s.

TCC has been in this historic space since the summer of 2014.



You will be glad you did.

Prior to June, 2014 TCC called another historic location home for nearly thirteen years:  3203 and 3201 1st Ave SE Cedar Rapids (formerly known as Kenwood Park before being annexed by Cedar Rapids,) with the old Trolley Stop infrastructure still present.
