I have had several (one) requests for a list of places to go look at antiques in North Carolina, my current home.

I keep very busy and don’t really have the time or opportunity to look at antiques and other such frivolities. But if I did, this is a list of places I might frequent.

These aren’t the only antique shops in North Carolina, just the ones I have been to and have found interesting enough to visit again.

There are undoubtedly ones I haven’t found yet. I discovered some just putting together this list. If you know of a good one not on the list, let me know. When I have the time and opportunity, I will pay it a visit and add it to the next list if so deserved.
