California's Central Coast is fortunate to have a number of antique and vintage stores filled with treasures from the past that you can use, decorate your home with, and wear.
Monterey's Cannery Row is home to the largest antique mall on the Central Coast. With over 21,000 square feet and 150 dealers, shoppers are bound to find something that catches their attention whether it happens to be science fiction books, jewelry, china, or lace. Even the building itself is an antique - it used to be a Carmel Canning Company building back in the 1920s.
Even if you don't live on the Central Coast and can't make it out here, I encourage you to check out antique stores in your area. The quality and beauty of antique items make scouring shops completely worth it.
