Let's Go On A Treasure Hunt: A Guide to Antiquing in Columbia SC
Tuesday, October 24, 2017 9:00 AM
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.
Digging Joanna Gaines’ farmhouse chic? Then get yourself to Re·Find for all things weathered and whitewashed.
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.
