It’s no secret to anyone who knows me that I’m a little obsessed with all things vintage. It’s true. Show me an antique store, and if given the time, I’ll likely spend hours browsing the booths, finding treasures. One year my family even decided to shop only vintage for our holiday gifts. That was such an amazing Christmas.
There’s just something about browsing an antique store. It brings back so many memories. It’s sad because I miss the loved ones that go along with those memories, but at the same time it’s happy because the memories are there, and I love thinking about this story or that from my childhood.
Rogers is full of vintage shopping venues, from antique malls to flea markets galore. There are many treasures to be had; it’s just knowing where to shop. While I know there are many, many places to shop vintage in Rogers, here are a few ideas to get you started in the right direction…
One of my absolute favorite shops in Rogers, Somewhere in Time Antique Mall, is a great place to shop and browse around. It’s usually my first choice when shopping vintage. The atmosphere is wonderful with friendly, helpful people and vintage music playing in the background. As soon as you step through the door, you’re transported to the past. You’ll find over 7500 sq. ft. of booths to explore. One of my favorite booths always has all sorts of vintage cards, buttons, embellishments, and other small items that could be used for crafting projects. I picked up a whole passel of wooden spools on one visit. From furniture to collectibles, home décor, vintage holiday items, books, records, toys, dishes, and more…there’s something for everyone. Somewhere in Time Antique Mall is open Mon-Wed, 10am to 5pm; Thurs-Sat, 10am to 6pm; and Sun, 12pm to 5pm.
Another one of my favorites is The Rose. If you’ve never been, it’s definitely a treat. They carry all sorts of vintage furniture, pictures and frames, kitchen items, holiday décor, fabric, ribbon, vintage clothing, and more. On my first visit, I rounded a corner to find none other than what appeared to be a vintage clothing booth that looked like a dress-up closet. Amazing! Hats, dresses, skirts, fur coats, jewelry … a vintage soul’s paradise. It reminded me of my grandma’s closet; I’d sometimes sift through her closet, putting outfits together. The memories from exploring her closet are just priceless.
Another one of my favorite booths is set up much like a vintage kitchen from the 60’s/70’s/80’s. Vintage canisters, old tables, dishes, and more make up a booth I could just stand and stare at for ages.
On Saturday, December 14th, The Rose will have their Christmas Open House at 1pm. It sounds like there will be entertainment, food, beverages, door prizes, and maybe even a certain special someone the kids would enjoy seeing. Bring the kids and make an afternoon of it!
If you’re a collector of vintage books, or books in general, Trolley Line Bookshop is a great stop on your vintage shopping tour. Books are always on my family’s different Christmas lists, so this will definitely be one of my stops this year.
Located in Downtown Rogers, you’ll likely run into a set of vintage metal outdoor chairs. Once you see the chairs, you know you’ve made it to The Rusty Chair. Though I haven’t been inside this shop yet, the window décor alone makes me want to visit and browse to my heart’s content. The Rusty Chair is open Tues-Sat, 10am to 6pm; and Sun, 12pm to 4pm.
Located in Downtown Rogers, this shop is full of collectible items, vintage treasures, beautiful clocks, vintage jewelry, and more.
