Antiques make for a unique way to enhance any room of the home. True antiques are at least 100 years old, and they range from colorful paintings to Victorian chairs. Antique shops around San Diego offer plenty of ways to incorporate history and charm into your decor. When you’re ready to find some cool, eccentric pieces, the best stores near our Mission Valley apartments include:
Mission Gallery Antiques
At Mission Gallery Antiques, the pieces come from San Diego and around the world. Founders Randy Batley and Jim O’Connell became passionate about antiques at a young age. Randy’s mom helped preserve downtown San Diego’s Victorian homes, while Jim was influenced by his grandmother, a decorator in San Francisco. Randy and Jim opened the shop in 1980, and the store’s inventory frequently changes. Items may include 17th-century armchairs, 1860 ink wells, and colorful works of art. Mission Gallery is currently open Monday through Saturday by appointment only.
David A’s Antiques
A San Diego native, David became an art dealer thirty years ago. At David A’s Antiques, he’s dedicated to sharing his passion. He enjoys learning the personal stories behind the pieces he discovers and helps everyone find the perfect items for their homes. The shop is open on Fridays and Saturdays between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
India Street Antiques
When India Street Antiques opened in 1991, it was the only retail store in North Little Italy (NoLi). Today, NoLi is the city’s premier art and design district. Visitors to India Street find European vintage and European furnishings and a staff that’s both friendly and knowledgeable. The selection includes desks, armoires, and Regency-style chairs. You can shop in person or call to place an order for shipping or curbside pickup.
