The Antique and Art Exchange in San Francisco, California, is a store born from a lifelong love of antiques. One of the owners began his interest in collecting at the young age of 4! Therefore, this store is truly the culmination of a life spent admiring vintage and antique items, and perfecting the art of collecting. It is now a family project and oozes with the kind of joy that comes from turning a lifelong adored hobby into a successful way to make a living.

In 1995, the Antique and Art Exchange came into being, taking the place of an abandoned antiquing enterprise. Therefore, the tradition of this address as being the site for admiring antiques continued! Thanks to the quality of antiques found in this store since its inception, it was mentioned in such publications as the San Francisco Chronicle and Town and County with high praise. This only increased the popularity and success of the store. It has since cemented its place on the map of excellent stores in which to find unique and wonderful antique and vintage items.

Today, the clientele of the Antique and Art Exchange boasts heads of state, politicians, writers, artists, nobility, celebs, dealers, and of course, designers. These customers flock to the vast, dog-friendly Design District showroom to shop for antiquities, modern pieces, and everything in between. On any normal day, visitors can expect to find tables, artwork, cabinets, chairs, ornamental pottery, lamps, chinaware, chandeliers, mirrors, and more. Pieces are sourced from all around the world, and from varying time periods.

The main showroom of the Antique and Art Exchange is spread over 6000 square feet. Walking through feels like a cross between exploring a vast, old estate of aristocratic heritage and attending a stunning museum. The collections are intuitively arranged and everything is displayed clearly. There is no need for rummaging in this store, or worrying that you may have missed the best treasures buried somewhere!

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
