Regular visitors to the Montreal antique district are sure to have their favorite shops. The area has a lovely, old-world feel to it, as shoppers wind their way through the tights alleys and close-knit stores to feast their eyes on all the wares for sale. Collectors of specific themes could look in advance for the locations of the stores most likely to deliver them a prize, but time spent aimlessly wandering from one antique shop to another is also highly recommended! You just never know what can be found here, so it seems a shame to charge through to a desired store.

They speak with passion and are happy to share the stories behind the items for sale, which is a lot of the joy of antique and second-hand shopping. The antique district runs the gambit in terms of types of shops; there are small thrift stores, shops that look like galleries, large antique stores that hold a few different vendors within, high end antique shops and quirky junk collections.
Flea market enthusiasts and antique lovers will find it challenging to leave a tour through the Montreal antique district without buying something. At least they will end up creating a list of things that they will buy the next time they visit!
