Fort Payne, Alabama, is home to the Appalachian Mountains and vast expanses of protected forests, therefore perhaps the obvious motivation for visiting here is to embrace and enjoy nature. However, those that do not also consider a day or two of shopping here will be missing a treat indeed! For a small town, the number of antique shops found is remarkable. Through mining, there was much development of the town in the late 19th century and many buildings of this era still stand. This historical setting, combined with the gorgeous natural scenery and Southern hospitality, makes it the perfect town for some treasure hunting.

Many of the noteworthy antique stores are not hidden away but proudly stand along Main Street in Fort Payne. Big Mill Antique Mall lives up to its name in terms of size and is hard to miss! This store was created inside the historical building of the old mill, so has oodles of charm that sets it apart from the typical antique mall. Myrtle Jane’s is further along the street and from the outside looks more like you are about to step into someone’s home than a shop. This wonderful store is full of unique pieces and curios, perfect for brightening up the home or an established collection of antiques.

Just outside of the center of Fort Payne is The Cotton Gin Antiques. Located near Little River Canyon, this store offers a wide variety of antiques, lamps, lanterns, glassware, furniture, and primitives. Parkway Style Antiques is also worth a look for some excellent antiques, though this store is only open on Saturdays so be sure to plan accordingly! Pieces of the Past is also only open at select times a couple of days each week so make yourself familiar with their schedule for the chance to shop these rare vintage items, collectibles, and antiques.

"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."
