If you’re searching for a gift that is truly unique, your best bests are antique and thrift shops. It’s all about the thrill of the hunt as you sift through timeless pieces that have long been separated from their replicas, if there were any to begin with. Whether you’re searching for furniture, collectibles, or anything in between, you’re bound to find it in one of Greater Raleigh’s antique and thrift shops.
For fine, hand-picked English and French antiques and accessories, make a visit to Acquisitions Ltd. in Raleigh. Here, you’ll find a wide selection of beautiful antiques and direct imports that will be very difficult, if not impossible, to find anywhere near.
If you love vintage designer apparel, you can find it at Dress on Glenwood Avenue. While this consignment boutique carries a mix of vintage and modern designer clothes, you’ll find both at bargain prices. You’ll also find designer labels and brands that you won’t find anywhere else in the area.
