Lutz and Wyckoff share a love of antiques, collectibles and oddities. They first met when Wyckoff was a dealer a former business venture of Lutz. When Lutz sold that business in 2018 they started dreaming about future possibilities. After much discussion and looking for the right location they found a perfect place to make Reliques a reality.
Lutz has been living and breathing antiques and collectibles for over 20 years. He started out selling items online when eBay was in its infancy. From there he hosted his own space in an antique mall and later partnered in a downtown Vancouver business featuring vintage items for home and garden.
Wyckoff grew up scouring flea markets and thrift stores with his father who was a huge collector. He combined his love of sports and collecting with a focus on sports memorabilia, which then led him to focus on all things antique.
Reliques Marketplace is open from 10:00 a.m.–6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. More details are available on their Facebook page @reliquesmarketplace.
