Well off the beaten path of Southwest Stuttgart, Germany, in the quaint village of Schönaich, Petra Antiques has been offering antique buffs a unique array of vintage items for more than 30 years. The building itself is a little non-descript and the whole area is a mixture of residential and smaller shops, so you have to know that this gem of a store is here in order to find it. Anyone with a love of antiques will agree that it is worth the small diversion from the city of Stuttgart to stop by here and check out the treasures on offer.

Specializing in 18th through 20th-century decorative German furniture, Petra Antiques is a family-owned business whose passion for all things antique and decorative is life-long. The store prides itself in finding and offering one-of-a-kind pieces that satisfy the tastes of the most discriminating collectors. Those with an interest in very specific kinds of antiques should not hesitate to strike up a conversation with the owner, who is extremely knowledgeable over a wide range of antiques. This store is also a great shopping opportunity for anyone seeking a unique, beautiful piece for their home with a story behind it. Expertise in antiquing is not necessary!

Petra Antiques has three large display rooms spanning more than 1000 meters squared. Within these rooms, more than 20,000 different pieces are on display. The store has a wide range of different antiques up for grabs, including jewelry, militaria, fine art, crystal lamps, Gobelin tapestries, Persian carpets, stoneware, toys, timepieces, stuffed animals, stone carvings, ornamental items, religious artifacts, and so much more.

The display rooms of Petra Antiques are so well organized, it is easy to make your way through and take in all the wonderful items on display. It feels as though visitors have stepped into a combination of museum and old estate rather than a shop, so shopping here is very much an exercise in exploration, which makes the discovery of the wonderful goods all the more exciting.

"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."
