Southeast MI Antique Shopping

One of my favorite things to do is to shop for antiques. Antiques bring character and history into a home and I love the stories they can tell. I am always hunting for something, and I have a few shops that are at the top of my list in Southeast Michigan. Numbered from the top left to right.

  1. Sideways: Plymouth, MI 
  2. Hathaway Antiques Emporium: Tecumseh, MI 
  3. The News Antiques: Saline, MI
  4. Cobblestone Rose: Saline, MI

Also, here are a few tips for happy Antique hunting.

  • Bring cash: most take credit card, but if you want a deal or if you want to keep an eye on your budget, cash is king 🙂
  • Make sure you have room in your car: you never know what you might come across. Have room in your car in case you find the perfect furniture piece.
  • Shop with an open mind. Antique shopping is most fun when you find an item that can have multiple uses.
  • Bring water. You will need to stay hydrated for the shopping and hunting marathon.
  • Look for items that blend well with your decor at home. You want old items to mesh with brand new items.
  • If you see something that speaks to your heart, buy it! Most likely, it is a one-of-a-kind and it will be hard to find later.

Good luck! And Happy Antique Shopping! xo Natalie
