There’s one thing for sure about Virginia, and that is there’s an abundance of antique dealers scattered throughout the Commonwealth. From the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Atlantic coast, Virginia has a treasure trove of shops and malls to peruse through. From exceptional antique dealers that specialize in fine American, British and Continental furniture and decorative arts from the 17th, 18th and 19th and early 20th centuries, to the weekend markets that offer used furnishings and brick-a-brac at a flea price. So, whatever you are hunting for, you are most likely going to find it in one of Virginia’s many antiquing haunts
