Spreading out over 20,000 square feet of space, the Cheshire Cat Antique Gallery is the largest antique mall in North Carolina. More than 100 different dealers are housed within, each with their own beautiful selection of antique and collectible goods. Serious collectors will have a field day here, and it is also the perfect store for anyone searching for unique, one of a kind items for their home.
The Cheshire Cat Antique Gallery is a little hidden. It is a basement store, under the walkways of Cameron Village, so its size is an unexpected surprise! It really feels as though visitors have been transported back in time when stepping down the stairs to enter this mall, and it is easy to get lost among nostalgia when browsing through the hundreds of items on display.
All of the vendors doing business in the Cheshire Cat Antique Gallery are knowledgeable about their trade. Anyone who might just be dipping their toes into the water of antiquing would be well advised to pop into this store, as the staff have such a wealth of information about their items specifically, and collecting generally. They are incredibly friendly too and encourage shoppers to browse around and find out more about the good for sale.
One of the great things about Cheshire Cat Antique Gallery is the range of items for sale, though they are known for the handful of dealers selling vinyl collections so music lovers should most definitely stop by here. Among the vinyl are also vintage clothing collections, jewelry, books and comics, furniture, lighting and other household fixtures, toys and plenty of Americana.
The Cheshire Cat Antique Gallery also offers an appraisal service and a china and silver restoration service. All in all, it is a great place to come for all antiquing and collecting needs.
