Treasure Hunt

The Tri-State is home to many thrift stores and resale boutiques, but some items — often with rich histories and stunning details — require their own specialty stores. Here are five local antique stores packed with hidden gems that you’ll want to visit.

Riverside Antique Mall (1205 E. Riverside Drive)

Riverside Antique Mall is a maze of more than 50 dealers with a rotating inventory of fine china, furniture, primitives, postcards, toys, jewelry, tools, home décor, books, and much more. You’ll want to set aside at least an hour and be prepared to get lost among the treasures.


Decades of Design
(309 Main St.)

Nestled on Main Street, Decades of Design is a smaller shop overflowing with high-end antiques and home décor. Recognized for large storefront windows that display the goods inside, the store's inventory is constantly changing for the season, but includes a range of authentic furs, rare dishware, vintage art, and quality statement furniture.


Looky Looky Vendor Mall (318 N. Green River Road)

Open seven days a week, Looky Looky Vendor Mall is a sprawling marketplace of local goods, antiques, electronics, clothing, furniture, and food. The consignment store is set up as a giant garage sale, with stalls upon stalls of rare items just waiting to be discovered. 

Karen’s Upscale Resale
(1324 N. Fares Avenue)

Karen’s Upscale Resale is best described by its name — an upscale resale store featuring antique furniture and home accessories as well as modern pieces all displayed in a high-end, retail showroom. Locally owned and operated, Karen’s takes the seek-and-find aspect out of antiquing. 

The Elm Consignments (120 N. Elm St., Henderson, KY)

With more than 10,000 square feet of furniture, glassware, records, and vintage frames, the Elm Consignments is one of Henderson’s premiere antique shops. But the inconspicuous storefront holds more than meets the eye. The Elm also rents space inside to several other businesses including Cure Skate shop and Corkscrew Curiosities, an antique store for misfit antiques.
