Stroll through time and connect with Columbia’s past with a day of treasure hunting. Columbia SC is one of the United States’ first planned cities so you can bet that our antique shops have their share of vintage finds.

Old Mill Antique Mall

The shops themselves are often steeped in history and character. Case in point, Old Mill Antique Mall on West Columbia’s eclectic State Street. The former is home to 75 dealers and three floors of treasures. You can find everything from antique umbrellas and vintage clothes to old church cookbooks and vinyl records. You'll also stumble upon a vast selection of plants + succulents -- for the dreamiest of window-sills, of course.

Red Lion Antique Mall

Smack in the middle of everything, Red Lion Antique Mall is located in the heart of downtown’s historic Robert Mills District. You’re as likely to find a wooden, beaded chandelier (true story) as a vintage tobacco basket here.

 

Silver bells. Silver bells. It's Christmas time in the city. 1929 Hampton Street. Open 10:30am to 5:30pm today. 🎄

While away, spend a few hours at Parks Antiques. Home to impressive furniture collections and vintage home décor (those mirrors, y’all), this shop is a must for decorating enthusiasts.

Three Rivers Antiques

If you’re pressed for time but still want a good selection of vintage finds, head to Three Rivers Antiques. Then try your hand at nearby 763 Meeting Street Antique Mall. Take home souvenirs of Pyrex nesting bowls and Argus cobalt tumblers.
