Fair Oaks Antiques is run by the husband and wife team of Derek and Deanna Dahlsad. We’ve found unique items for collectors and decorators; provided props and set pieces for film productions; been featured in collector publications; had items from our own collections appear in museums & historical exhibits; presented at conferences; and professionally researched & written about antiques & collectibles, including for regular radio broadcast.

We regularly travel what we call the tri-state area of North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, sometimes going beyond, as time and family commitments allow… (We write or blog a bit about our travels here.)

We also go beyond in terms of service. If there’s something specific you collect, a piece you are looking for, an object you need, please let us know. We offer personalized shopping or picking services! (If you need to know more about what you have, we offer research servicestoo.)
