Shawn and I love to mix in new decor with vintage/antique decor and have been antiquing together for about 5 years now! We’ve only shopped local since we started, so we have a good handful of stores on the west side of Cleveland that we like to visit! Maybe one day we’ll branch out further than Ohio, but for now we’ve been quite successful finding beautiful pieces where we’re at!
Keep in mind this post is for antique shopping, not thrifting. While you can definitely find some amazing antiques at a great price from this list, its good to remember that these items are curated by the shop owner, not donated by the general public. There’s a huge difference between antiquing and thrifting, especially in pricing!
If you visit any of these stores and happen to speak with the workers, I would appreciate it so much if you mentioned that you found their store from my blog post, or tag me in your finds on IG! As a growing blogger, I’d appreciate a simple mention so much! I am not paid to advertise these shops, I am sharing for you guys to find amazing pieces, the simple mention in stores or through social media helps grow my community even stronger. Thank you guys!

South Hills Antique Gallery—Old Brooklyn, OH. This place was one of the first places we used to visit when on the hunt. They will negotiate to an extent, especially if you’re buying multiple pieces. We typically went there for small decor items, I don’t think we’ve ever purchased furniture from there.
Michael Rolf Antiques—Cleveland, OH. This place is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES! Especially for unique, one-of-a-kinds! We randomly stumbled upon this place years ago and have shopped there ever since. The owner, Michael, is super creative and repurposes furniture, we found our clothing rack there! He has curated a unique selection of antiques, lots of science beakers, old drawers, signs, and figurines! If anyone ever asks me where to antique this is the first place I mention.
Reincarnation Vintage Design —Cleveland, OH. This shop is just a few doors down from Michael Rolfe, so if you are planning a day of antiquing it’d be perfect to see both one after another! They also repurpose and create their own unique pieces but also have an awesome selection of antiques. They also have a store kitty which is also a plus.
* Theres another shop next to this one that has a lot of goodies, we haven’t purchased from them but if you’re going to Michael Rolf and Reincarnation, might as well stop there too :)
Arhaus The Loft—Cleveland, OH. YEPP Arhaus’ Loft location has vintage goodies. They also sell vintage in stores too. We recently found our coffee table there…SCORE. And we bought a display when the old Legacy showroom was closing a few months ago.
Country Store—Avon, OH. Before it was suburbanized, Avon was rural farm land and a few of the historic homes turned into antique shops! Shawn and I started shopping here at the same time as #1. You need to really look through each item and typically we spend over an hour hunting there but we always find unique pieces
Jameson Homestead Antiques—Avon, OH. Last but not least.. The most amazing shop ever in my opinion.. this is our secret weapon guys so I hope you’re grateful LOL! This shop consists of multiple sellers so every area is unique and it 100% depends on the curator’s selection during that time. The second floor, on the left side of the barn always has my FAVORITE decor and furniture. It’s where we found our entryway bench recently, and our dream dining table was there but was sold. Stuff doesn’t sit there long, especially because the prices are so fair. They have furniture and decor, and we’ve bought both! Lots of both haha.
I highly recommend all of these locations and guarantee you will find vintage goodies from at least one of these shops if not all. Once again, I’d appreciate so much if you mentioned me if you share your finds, or even shared this blog post with your friends. My blog only runs because of YOU! Thank you!
