There's something magical about sifting through the variety of things you can only find at thrift stores, swap meets, or vintage shops - they aren't like regular stores, where the stock is usually the same day in and day out. You never really know what you're going to find, and each trip is like going on a treasure hunt.
When visiting one of these establishments, perhaps you'll find the missing piece to that collection you've been nursing for years, or maybe you'll find something new and unexpected - but when you see it, you know you have to have it. One of the most exciting local businesses in Raleigh Hills is the Curiosities Vintage Mall.
This unique establishment has so many different kinds of items you won't know where to begin. It's the perfect destination for anyone searching for a unique gift, or something new to add to their own collection of curiosities. Visitors can expect to find:
The items an enthusiastic shopper can find range from moments in time spanning the late 1940s all the way up through the early 1990s. That means you're going to experience more than half a century worth of variety - don't be surprised if you find an item that causes you to revel in nostalgia. The items available are a dream come true for collectors, antiquing enthusiasts, and junk-lovers alike (although we'd be hard pressed to call anything here "junk").
Something for Everyone
The kinds of items you'll find at the Curiosities Vintage Mall are so expansive that a visit to this establishment can be enjoyable for the whole family - no matter how different everyone's personal taste happens to be. Without a doubt, someone will find an article of clothing they love, or they'll discover a wonderfully scented soap, or perhaps even a delicious local jam hand crafted by community members.
This is the kind of shopping experience for which you'll likely want to set aside at least one or two hours. Combing through the many displays of items spanning decades isn't an experience that should be hasty. To truly enjoy the Vintage Mall, you and your family may wish to set aside an entire afternoon.
Affordable Pricing for Unique Treasures
A lot of "vintage" type stores tend to overprice their stock. While in some cases this may be understandable for one-of-a-kind or extra rare items, this kind of pricing is very rare at the Curiosities Vintage Mall.
The vast majority of items in this establishment are extremely reasonably priced, and you'll likely fill up your basket with plenty of goodies with very low price tags. Particularly of note are the clothes - some of them are several decades old, and yet in remarkable condition, and all with pricing far more reasonable than other boutique shops would typically demand. As with other vintage stores, you always have the opportunity of "haggling", but beware - the friendly and polite owners are masters at it after years of running the place!
