Birmingham is a fabulous antiquing town in Alabama. Since it is the largest metropolitan area in Alabama, it stands to reason that it is the hub of so many great second-hand, antique, and vintage shops. From its founding in 1871, it has a history of industry, mining, and was an important hub for the development of the railroad. With these strong influences, you can imagine the kinds of old treasures that find their way into the many antique stores in this town!

Of course, no antiquing town would be complete without its fair share of antique malls, and Birmingham has plenty to offer where these are concerned. Hanna Antique Mall is a great place to start. The booths are staged with a great deal of thought, so shoppers can really imagine how a piece might fit into a room. Urban Suburban has 65 different vendors and hundreds of antiques to browse through. Fifth Avenue Antique Mall should also be on the list to stop by. The antique malls alone can fill a shopping weekend in Birmingham, but there is so much more to explore in this antiquing town.

Collectors with an eye for a little European flair will not be disappointed with Birmingham. Henhouse Antiques is a carefully curator store that has been trading since the early 2000s. There is a fine mixture of English and French pieces here ranging from the 18th to 21st century. Lolo French Antique et More is a hidden gem. The initial showroom is stunning enough, so shoppers will be blown away when they discover the additional 10,000 square feet warehouse full of delights from the 17th to 20th century.

Antique collectors will have plenty to do in Birmingham. It is also a must-visit for those with an eye for art and interior design. The second floor of Fifth Avenue Antiques is worth a look for design inspiration. Circa Interiors and Antiques has garnered quite a reputation for its inspirational take on mixing modern with antique when it comes to interior design. All in all, Birmingham certainly does not disappoint!

"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."
