It ’ s a Great Season to go Antique Shopping in the U . S .!
In the U . S ., shopping for vintage is a gold mine ! From the $ 1 bins at Antique World to the trays upon trays of vintage jewelry at Moda Vintage , it isn ’ t just a walk in the park ; this is a GAME ON type of shopping experience that is either a solo gig or with your closest friends . There ’ s a strategy for hunting down those one-of-a-kind prizes ; here are the secret places to shop for the best finds :
Your first early morning stop should be Antique World , which is located in Clarence , NY , about one hour drive from Niagara Falls . Filled with hundreds of vendors on any given weekend , there is an outdoor and indoor market . This is by far one of the best places to shop for vintage finds . The outdoor flea is open Saturday and Sundays ; out of the two , Sundays are your best bet . There ’ s nothing like arriving nice and early with a hot cup of coffee while you scope out the grounds .

While shopping in the Elmwood Village during the summer months , stop by The Peddler flea market on Saturdays , located on the corner of West Ferry and Elmwood Avenue ( www . buffalorising . com ).
A few blocks away , Second Chic is a major score when it comes to consignment and thrift finds ( www . second-chic . com ).
Just minutes away from Elmwood , Hertel Avenue is known for their thrift and antique shops . ( www . hertelavenue . com ) There you will also find Second Chic ’ s second location and Buffalo Antiques ( buffaloantique . com )
Then a few minutes away there is Miss Josie ’ s Vintage and Antiques in Kenmore , which will surely give you that indefinable thrill that comes from uncovering that perfect baby blue 60s cape in mint condition .
