These are the best cities for antique shopping, new study finds
Buying antiques is one of the best ways to find unique furniture to outfit your home and according to a new study by Joybird, some cities are more ideal than others when it comes to searching for ancient gems.
The furniture company used various factors to judge the quality of antiques in a number of cities in the United States. Each city was scored out of 50 points, based on a total of six factors: antique dealers in each city, as well as the number of antique stores, flea markets, estate sales, and second-hand, vintage or consignment stores per 100,000 population in those locations. So who came out on top? Well you might be surprised. Cities like Round Top and Brimfield with large antique markets haven’t made the Joybird cut, nor many larger cities, like New York or Chicago.
See below for a breakdown of the top five, but don’t let that put you off shopping at any of your local hangouts, either!
