Antique Stores Around Central Virginia

Richmond Antique Stores

Everything old is new again, especially when it comes to the incredible variety of vintage furniture, artwork, home accessories, and jewelry found in local antique stores. Our real estate agents love to spend weekends antiquing at these great shops around Central Virginia.

  • West End Antiques Mall - 2004 Staples Mill Rd., Richmond, VA 23230
    Why do people consistently name West End Antiques Mall as the best antique mall near Richmond homes for sale? With more than 250 booths across 53,000 square feet, you're sure to find something that catches your eye. The comprehensive assortment of antiques and collectibles spans a full spectrum of periods and styles. Just 25 percent down holds any purchase of $100 or more for 45 days. Hours are 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon - 6 p.m. Sunday.

  • Sheppard Street Antiques - N. 1126 Arthur Ashe Blvd., Richmond, VA 23230
    Virginia native Sara Garza blended her passion for antiques and dreams of entrepreneurship when she opened Sheppard Street Antiques. Originally, the shop specialized in vintage garden-related items, reflecting another of Sara's interests. As Sheppard Street Antiques became more successful, Sara expanded the scope to include an eclectic offering of antiques and collectibles. In support of her native state, Sara also carries a number of handmade jewelry and gift items by local artists. Sheppard Street Antiques is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. 

  • Sixty West Vintage - 8004 Midlothian Turnpike, Richmond, VA 23235
    When you visit Sixty West Vintage, you may feel like you're in someone's home rather than a store. Sixty West Vintage is well-known for featuring high-quality wood furniture from top brands such as Pennsylvania House and Thomasville. Be sure to stop in the gallery of Carole Stewart and take home one of her original oil paintings to grace the walls of your home. Hours are 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon - 6 p.m. Sunday.

  • Penniston's Alley Antiques & Collectibles - 102 W. Old St., Petersburg, VA 23803
    Historic Old Town is an appropriate location for Penniston's Alley Antiques & Collectibles, just down the street from Petersburg homes for sale. Two Federal townhouses dating back to the early 1800s form the setting for the shop, creating a gracious and comfortable ambiance. Owners Sid Scott and Chris Brown took advantage of their jobs as flight attendants to bring back stunning furniture and accessories from around the world. Sid, Chris, and their staff love to share information about antiques as well as historic tales of Petersburg. Penniston's Alley is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m.

  • Tye's Antiques - 4200 Steger Creek Dr., Powhatan, VA 23139
    Like many of the best entrepreneurial ideas, Tye's Antiques started out as a personal hobby for owners Tom and Robyn. The pair soon filled their home with furniture and family heirlooms Tom restored in their garage-turned-workroom. In addition to selling antiques, Tom puts his refinishing skills to work on customer-owned pieces ranging from a drop-leaf table to a pair of old church pews, many of which are now proudly displayed in Powhatan homes for sale. Hours are 10 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. 

Central Virginia's historic past and lively present make it the perfect place for your future. Contact us at Napier Realtors ERA for expert help buying or selling a home.

Your Guide to Last Minute Holiday Shopping in Richmond

Richmond Shopping Guide

If you're like our real estate agents, then there are a few people still on your gift-giving list. This year, it's more important than ever to think, shop, and buy local. By purchasing from locally-owned stores, your money goes back into the community and supports your family, friends, and neighbors.

Think. Shop. Buy. Local.

No matter how long you've lived in a place, there are surely a few hidden gems you've yet to stumble upon. Think. Shop. Buy. Local helps you discover the wonderful mom and pop shops around Richmond. If you prefer in-store browsing, you'll be happy to know that these shops all have made adjustments to provide safe, socially distant shopping experiences. However, these shops will also offer curbside pickup for those who order online. For a completely zero-contact experience, you can order from these businesses and have your products shipped directly to your front door. Some of our favorite shops highlighted by Think. Shop. Buy. Local include:

  • AR Hot Southern Honey, selling tasty Virginia honey products.

  • Disco Sports, a staple of the Richmond sports scene for over half of a century who knows how to get you game-ready.

  • Little Nomad, housing a collection of clothes, toys, and other products for young children.

  • Re-Funk-It, a funky art shop with works created by artists from in and out of Virginia.

  • The Boho Basement, perfect for gifts for the upcycler in your life.

  • Thistles, a Richmond tradition for delivering distinctive gifts to those you care about most.

Local Shops Around the RVA

It's no secret that there are plenty of other great locally owned shops around the city. If you've explored everything you could in downtown Richmond, there are a few other towns to check out. If you're still searching for that special gift, may we suggest visiting one of the many shopping areas near Midlothian homes for sale, or venturing further south to downtown Petersburg:

  • Cottage Lane — 1353 Sycamore Square, Midlothian, VA 23113
    Though Cottage Lane is not offering in-store shopping right now, you're welcome to buy online and retrieve your purchase at the curb. Gifts and home décor are available from a number of wonderful shops. 3 Marthas stocks quality products for infants while Catstudio produces geographic towels, glasses, and pillows. Jelly Cat has plush animals for children or the young at heart, and you will never go wrong when gifting a box of Byrd's Famous Cookies.


  • Old Towne Petersburg — 216 N. Sycamore Street, Petersburg, VA 23803
    Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the once burned down Old Towne of Petersburg has found new life as a district boasting unique shops and renovated homes. The antique lover will find great pieces at Sycamore Antiques and Architectural Art or at The Oak Antique Mall. Second Hand Rose, Mad Biddy's, and Camera & Palette also have interesting items for sale that make for one-of-a-kind gifts for the antique collector on your list. Be sure to stop by after browsing Petersburg homes for sale in the area.
