Cabin Creekwood in Lyndhurst offers local shopping suggestions to their guests just as any good cabin owner would. I came across their blog and an entry entitled Antiquing in Virginia: 4 Shops Worth Visiting caught my attention. Who knows best? Locals know best. If you’re in the Staunton area, check out Valley of Virginia Antiques in Fairfield, the Stuarts Draft Antique Mall, The Factory Antique Mall in Verona, or Memory Makers in downtown Staunton.

Take your hunt for antiques to the Eastern Shore of Virginia. That’s just what writer Krys Stefansky of The Virginian-Pilot did in her article Road Trip: Find Antique Heaven on the Eastern Shore. Her recommended stops include Blue Crow Antique Mall in Keller, Exmore’s Antique Emporium, and a stop for a quick bite at Big’s Place – The Gaskill Family Restaurant in Painter. Read her article to see why she ends it, “We’re coming back.”

Gordonsville Antique Mall has approximately 80 dealers. We now have a booth there. Great finds in central Virginia. We will be building 35 mi south on Rt 15 in Arvonia. Check us out!

Home store in Manassas has an amazing selection of antique and vintage furniture, painted furniture, glassware, china, jewelry, crystal, porcelain, tea cups, toys, collectables – pretty much everything. I was in there last weekend and it looks like they are moving to Woodbridge though! Its a fun shop — takes a while to get through it all.
