If you don't have enough time to shop, but are tired of the city crowds, the Galena Antique District has the answer to your problems. It is close enough to the city of Chicago for a day trip, or just far enough to have the perfect excuse for a weekend getaway.
With a population of just over 3000 and a collection of wonderful shops, Galena has made a name for itself among antique and vintage enthusiasts in Illinois. Most of the shops are clustered on Main Street and offer something for everyone. And those with a special interest in antiques will be spoiled for choice.
The Galena Antique District offers the opportunity to completely redecorate your home, find unique birthday gifts for friends, pick up a quirky souvenir, or purchase an item that is sure to start a conversation around the house. Stores like "All That's Vintage" are hard to miss on the street, and go to great lengths to attract shoppers with fantastic window displays that show off the merchandise inside. Inside, there are excellent vintage toy collections, old cameras, dishes and other kitchenware, mirrors and other wall hangings, and a wide range of knickknacks that seem good for nothing but are fascinating at the same time.
Those with weird and wonderful collections are sure to find something worth keeping in the shops of the Galena Antique District. Peace of the Past has great collectibles and wonderful old books. Bibliophiles will get lost here. You Gotta Be Kidding has a large selection of vintage toys, Coke and Pepsi memorabilia and other Americana, glasses, Barbie dolls, bank signs and more to keep the nostalgia flowing.
If browsing is more appealing than finding specific collectibles, the Tin Pan Alley Antique Mall in the Galena Antique District is sure to keep visitors busy. With many vendors housed inside, this antique mall is the perfect place for those who love a story behind their shopping. It is easy to see why both antique enthusiasts and general shoppers return to Galena on a regular basis.
