Wayne first started dealing in antiques and collectibles back in 1993. At first, Wayne rented a spot in an antique store which operated out of a building on Broad Street in Lyndonville, which at one time housed a fitness center. Deciding he wanted to be on his own, he and his wife Pam purchased the building at their present location, now Route 5 Antiques & Collectibles at 277 Main St. in Lyndonville, and have been there ever since.
The top seller in the store is collectible coins. This aspect of the business — buying and selling old coins — is still going strong. Wayne takes this part of the business very seriously and wants to give his customers a fair price when buying their coins, or selling them the coins they’ve been looking for.
Wayne's "claim to fame" ~ a collector in Panama City, Fla., Larry Lee, owner of Coin and Bullion Reserve, showed up in Route 5 Collectibles a couple years back. Lee had purchased a rare 1913 Walton nickel for over 2 million dollars in 2013 and made national news. When Lee showed up at his store, Wayne realized who he was. When asked why he purchased the nickel, Lee said “he trusted that nickel more than I trust the banks.” Lee has returned to Route 5 Collectibles for the last two years - a new favorite place for him to shop.
