The town of Nanton in Calgary is a place where any Canadian lover of antiques needs to visit. Some of the buildings in Nanton’s Antique District are as old as the goods inside, which means the ambiance of the whole area is a little old-world and the perfect habitat for collectors and vintage enthusiasts! Stepping inside the buildings, visitors will be greeted by sloping floors, vintage architecture, and an untold treasure trove behind each door.

Nanton Antique District is described by some as a mini-Mecca of antiques. With so many hidden gems, it is easy to spend many hours strolling around, in and out of the many fabulous stores, filling up shopping bags as you go! An incredible variety of items can be found in these streets; Sentimental Journey Antiques occupies one of the oldest buildings in Nanton, dating back to the turn of the century and the goods within the range from incredible furniture to wonderful jewelry. The second floor of the building rents out small spaces to a range of different dealers, creating a rabbit-warren of fine antiques to find.

Further down the street in the Nanton Antique District, Lost Ark Antiques stocks vintage radios, books, chinaware, old tobacco tins and too many curios to list. A smaller store is tucked around the corner, and in Nostalgia Antiques and Collectibles visitors will find a wonderful selection of vintage books and magazines, alongside collections of linens and some awesome hats! Antiques N’ Things is off the main drag and stocks grandfather clocks, other smaller furniture items, old record players, and more.

If antique hunting in Nanton’s Antique District should tire you out, or end up taking the whole day where just a couple of hours were planned, there are cafes in the area to provide refreshments for weary shoppers. Anyone that enjoys shopping for antiques and vintage goods will no doubt return to this district again and again.

Michael Peeler
"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."
