Antique Lovers will DELIGHT over these DeKalb County Antique Shops

Whether you are passing through for the day or spending the weekend, you will want to take time to visit these great antique shops. Make sure to add in a stop for food at one of our fabulous restaurants or our award-winning wineries to make your visit complete.


Gallery 326 Antique and Auction Gallery


I’ve been in a lot of large antique shops and what I love about Gallery 326 is that it is one of the cleanest, well-displayed places I’ve ever seen. They have a great mix of automobile industry items, vintage toys, militaria and all of the estate items that we’ve grown to love. Head all of the way to the back for some very interesting exotic taxidermy mounts, including a giraffe. Make sure you get on their mailing list for auctions. The shop is located right off the highway so it’s a convenient stop if you are just passing through. Facebook Page

Antiques on Fifth -109 E Fifth Street, Ste E, Auburn


Located in Downtown Auburn, Antiques on Fifth is exactly what you are hoping for when you visit an antique mall – plenty of glass wares, home decor, tools, collectibles etc. and lots to look through. Head to the back and down the hall to find multiple rooms filled with antique goodies. This place was bustling with activity on the day of my visit so be sure to grab your favorites before they’re gone. Facebook Page

Cranberry Cottage – 214 W. 6th St., Auburn


This is another gem located on Sixth Street in downtown Auburn. What’s not to love about an adorable old church that houses a cozy cafe, ice cream parlor and fabulous gift shop? Stop for lunch and finish up with a stroll through antiques, home decor, clothing and accessories. (opens April) Make sure you don’t leave without trying one of her mouth-watering desserts! Sit outside on the patio during the warmer months. Facebook Page

The Blue Fruit Jar – 123 W. 8th St., Auburn


The owners tell guests that the shop is like an English muffin – lots of nooks and crannies. I would say that is an honest depiction of what you find at the Blue Fruit Jar. You’ll find a little bit of everything here from estate jewelry and antique glassware to art, vintage linens, toys and decor. Don’t be afraid to do a little digging as some of the best treasures might be hidden. I walked out with a Chinese waving cat which now sits proudly on my desk at work. Make sure you venture downstairs for plenty more merchandise. Facebook Page

Country Lane General Store – 221 N. Main St., Auburn

The General Store has a great mix of old and new treasures for your home. Over 65 vendors join together with everything from antiques and vintage items to home decor, handcrafted items, furniture and culinary items. Check out their website for a more inclusive list or better yet, just stop in and see for yourself. This shop really has a little bit of everything and it was fun to take it all in. Our favorite part was the nostalgic candies and we loaded up with plenty of taffy and hard candies. Website

Ten By Two Collectibles – 5832 CR 427, Auburn

This place is jammed full of great antiques! Located in a shop on their property just south of town, the Hissong’s have been collecting vintage toys, antiques, diner items, etc. for several years before opening up their shop. They have by far the largest selection of antique doll houses in the area. If you are looking for specific items, they have plenty more that haven’t made it to the shelves yet – just ask. They typically open on weekends and if the “open” flag is by the road you simply owe it to yourself to stop and come on in.  Facebook page


Miss Vicki’s Antiques and Unique Vintage – 1308 S. Randolph St., Garrett


I love this shop! It’s a great blend of antiques and vintage items on the south end of charming Garrett. It’s located in a quaint little strip mall right on 327. The shop also features a selection of boutique clothing, home decor and handcrafted items. Head up town afterwards and have lunch at one of their great downtown eateries including my favorite, Chef Peng’s Chinese Restaurant. Facebook Page 

St. Joe

2nd Time Around Antiques – 98 Washington St. (St. Rd. 1), St. Joe


Wind through downtown St. Joe on St. Rd. 1 and just as you are heading out of town, you’ll find 2nd Time Around Antiques. This barn is filled with collectibles, antiques, vintage toys and second-hand items for your home. There’s a little bit of everything. While you are in town, stop downtown for some pizza or pulled pork at Pizza, Subs and BBQ. Facebook Page
