The longer I live here, the more often I’m discovering that there are so many more areas of the city I have no idea exists. You saw Max and my Michigan Street adventure here, and even though we know more about it than we did a couple of weeks ago, it’s still a fairly untapped area on the Grand Rapids map for us.
Enter City Antiques.
I’m slowly but surely working my way through all of the thrifting location s in Grand Rapids, and this particular store did not disappoint, it’s located not far from my doctor’s office (again, north of the city), so I decided to check it off my list last week. This place is AWESOME. Has just as many treasures as Century Avenue (or Antique Row as Design Sponge called it), but the store is more organized and very well laid out, which the experience more enjoyable and less cluttered. Well, let’s be honest, all antiquing is “cluttered” but there is a fine line between that and junky. City Antiques is definitely the former.
I can’t wait to go back and take my time exploring their two floors of treasures! When I went a couple of weeks ago I just wanted to stop in to see what all the fuss was about. Definitely going to go back when I have the time to dedicate to truly digging up those treasures!
