Birmingham is a fabulous antique city in Alabama. Being the largest metropolitan area in Alabama, it stands to reason that it is the hub of so many great thrift, antique and vintage shops. Founded in 1871, it has a history of industry, mining, and was a major 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 city's many antique shops!
Of course, no antique town would be complete without its fair share of antique malls, and Birmingham has plenty to offer in this regard. The Hanna Antique Mall is a great place to start. The booths are thoughtfully set up so that 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. The Fifth Avenue Antique Mall should also be on your list of places to visit. The antique malls alone can fill a shopping weekend in Birmingham, but there is so much more to explore in this antique city.
Collectors with an eye for a little European flair will not be disappointed in Birmingham. Henhouse Antiques is a carefully curated shop that has been trading since the early 2000s. There is a fine mix of English and French pieces from the 18th to the 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 foot warehouse full of delights from the 17th to the 20th century.
Antique collectors will find plenty to do in Birmingham. It is also a must 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 gained a reputation for its inspirational approach to mixing modern and antique in interior design. All in all, Birmingham will not disappoint.
