Second Place: Class and Trash
Third Place: Sheppard Street Antiques
If you enjoy getting lost in the past, the West End Antiques Mall is the place to do it. While it’s known more for variety than for low prices, savvy shoppers can find bargains on antiques that have fallen out of fashion — like ornate china, manager Judy Splawn suggests. Overwhelmed by the thousands of items? The mall just opened Project1 a few doors down, which displays prize pieces in thoughtfully designed room settings. Project1 also is home to designers, upholsterers and restoration experts to help your finds shine. Class and Trash on Route 1 is the place to go for fun, shabby chic furniture and garden accessories. Sheppard Street Antiques specializes in carefully curated American and European pieces.
