About Just For Fun
In the early 80’s, Sandy and John Peterson became interested in antique restorations. They spent their weekends as swap meet warriors looking for unusual and unique treasures. They had so much fun anticipating what they would find each weekend. John enjoyed refurbishing old items and bringing life back to them. He couldn’t wait to come home from his day job to start working on their great finds. He was totally consumed with his new hobby. After a few years, they decided to quit their jobs and open an antique store. In 1985, Just For Fun opened its doors in Whittier, California.
The business grew rapidly. They restored antiques like gas pumps, Coke items, popcorn makers and candy gumball vending machines. Collectibles that represented fun or were a throwback to a simpler time became their trademark and thus the name, Just For Fun.
Today, Just For Fun is located in Orange, California, known as the antique capital of Southern California. Just For Fun has a worldwide reputation for high-quality restorations. Collectors from around the world bring their “Things of Value” to John so that he can bring life back into their prized possessions. Just For Fun cares about authenticity and we take pride in what we do. Thanks to all our customers and friends for over 30 great years in business.
