Iconic Columbus restaurant auctioning off hundreds of antiques after sudden closure

Sav McKee

Pasta aficionados and antique collectors alike – there’s an auction just for you happening right now.

Spaghetti Warehouse is auctioning off some iconic antiques from their original, 6,000 square foot space at 397 W. Broad St. to prepare for their move to Downtown Columbus after they had to abruptly close and move due to a roof collapse. Their newest restaurant will incorporate some of the antiques from the former space, but you now have the chance to take home some of the memorabilia for your own home, basement bar, or kitchen, to keep the memories alive.

This online auction can be found here. It started last Sunday, the 5th, but you still have plenty of time to place your bids – November 17th to be exact.


There’s more than 130 antiques and ephemera to choose from, like cool signs, vintage furniture, lamps, and other decorations. Here’s a more detailed list of some of those items: 

  • A large blue sleigh.
  • An Eagle 10 hand crank cotton gin similar to Eli Whitney’s original cotton gin.
  • A Prohibition-era copper still.
  • Antique household items: sifter, washing machines, coffee mill, corn grinder, espresso grinder, fruit press, gramophone and the large blue stove that was at the entrance of the legacy location.
  • Furniture including cast iron and marble end tables and Victorian-style settees.
  • Stained glass hanging lamps.
  • Stoneware crocks.
  • Metal advertising signs (several with thermometers) for brands such as Coca-Cola, Mail Pouch, 7up, London Life Cigarettes, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, Deer’s Leap Beer, Mason’s Root Beer and Braun’s Bread
  • Church pews from a European abbey
  • Retail fixtures including the tall cash register that was in the upper dining room.
  • Wood pub signs. 

If you win, you’ll get an email, and you’ll pick up your items from 12pm-4pm on November 19th at their Chillicothe storage location. They’ll send more details in the email.

So far, some bids are still at $0, while others are in the high hundreds.
