Shop the Past at Virginia Antique Malls

Saturday, December 28th, 2013

Shopping for antiques is a bit like going on a treasure hunt. You arrive at your chosen destination, sift through the wares of the past, and hope to stumble upon a vintage piece that suits your needs. Virginia boasts a large number of antique malls, vintage stores, and collectibles shops, each of which lies near an Inn Virginia bed & breakfast to complete your antiquing adventure:

The Factory Antique Mall in Verona, VA is “one of the largest antique malls in America.” Whether you’re on the hunt for books, dolls, glassware, or jewelry, you’ll find it and more at the Factory Antique Mall. This Mall also happens to have a Country Café within its walls for those who need a bite to eat while shopping. (Nearby Inn Virginia lodging includes Bridgewater Inn and Cottage, Montclair Bed and Breakfast,

Antiques and More of Appomattox displays a host of products with everything from candles to toys to furniture. With its location in historic downtown Appomattox, Virginia, you’ll feel as though you’re browsing through history. (Nearby Inn Virginia lodging includes Babcock House and Carriage House Inn B&B.)

Williamsburg Antique Mall in Colonial Williamsburg is a charming “niche in the antique community.” Search through historic clocks, hard-crafted furniture, and individual booths set up by specific antique dealers. As with Verona’s antique mall, this one also offers an eatery, La Petite Tea Room, complete with soup, sandwiches, and desserts. (Nearby Inn Virginia lodging includes Marl Inn B&B, Magnolia Manor, and York River Inn B&B.)

“Entering the Middleburg Antique Emporium is like stepping into a tastefully decorated Victorian home.” This establishment boasts around 45 antique dealers with both American and European wares for your purchase—sterling flatware, Brass Fireplace Accessories, china, porcelain, and more.
