Hidden away on a small-town street in Ritchie County, Arlo’s Antiques and Flower Barn is the ultimate place to go treasure hunting for all kinds of curios and collectibles in West Virginia. The town of Harrisville is perhaps not a stop that would occur on any typical tourist route, but it is definitely worth a diversion to spend a little time in this incredible store, which you probably would not stumble upon unless you were specifically looking for it. And it would certainly be a shame to miss it!
Arlo’s Antique Flea Market and Flower Barn has been charming shoppers since 1999 and it has gained a reputation for excellence through West Virginia and beyond. The store takes up more than 10,000 square feet, and every inch of the space is filled with collectible antique and vintage items representing a wide range of topics and periods of history. It is well organized and lovely to walk around browsing, though if visitors are on the hunt for specific goods the owners and staff are incredibly helpful and will direct you straight to the desired items. It is definitely more fun to take some time and browse around though, as there are plenty of goodies to be seen.
Shelves and display cases in Arlo’s Antique Flea Market and Flower Barn are filled to the brim with amazing items steeped in American history. Furniture items large and small are sprinkled around the store, surrounded by beautiful glassware, army memorabilia, Donaghoo stone jars, old tobacco tins, tools, antique cash registers, jars, ornaments, telephones, posters and advertising memorabilia, toys and so much more.
Some of the pieces in Arlo’s Antique Flea Market and Flower Barn date back to the early 1800s, so anyone with an interest in history is going to enjoy a walkthrough here. It is open seven days a week too, so any time is a good time for shopping here!
