Looking for Repurposed, Vintage, Antique and Resale Shops in Greater Grand Rapids?
I love shopping locally for unique, one-of-kind items. Browsing through antique stores, flea markets and thrift shops is one of my favorite things to do. It feels so satisfying to give new life to a repurposed item that sings with charm and character.
I also dig finding birthday and holiday gifts for loved ones at shops like these. It’s easy to head to the mall or put something in an Amazon.com shopping cart, but I love the personal touch of an item that I scouted out at a small boutique.
Vintage, Resale, Consignment Store Shopping Made Easy for You!
We’ve made “treasure hunting” easy for you, West Michigan. Take a look below to find shops near you. We’ve covered everything from resale shops to consignment boutiques to vintage haunts. Jot down some addresses and get started on your own personalized resale trail!
These markets are held on specific dates, and are great ways to see a huge variety of vendors in one place, with something for everyone.
Tip from my friend April: bring a vehicle that’s large enough to take home any sized treasure; unlike a storefront, you can’t pick up that sweet chaise lounge the next day when you can bring the SUV. At a market you’ve gotta be able to take it home the same day.
Vintage, Flea and Handmade Market Calendar
There are enough shops in this one district to keep you and your friends on the hunt the whole weekend. There’s a nice mix of clothing and home goods stores, from fun vintage finds to true antiques.
Uptown & EGR (East Fulton, East Hills, Eastown, Wealthy Street) Stores
If you want to park once and shop loads of vendors, the west side is where you want to go. Century Avenue alone has two large stores with hours of shopping inside. This is also a good spot to find some great clothes that you can bet no one else will be able to copy.
Westside GR Stores
Whether you want to find a snazzy piece of painted furniture or maybe an old coffee table that you an reimagine yourself, the Kentwood area will have some great stops for you. (You can also bring your teen along to find some trendy-but-not-so-pricey duds!)
28th St SE & Kentwood Area Stores
North of Grand Rapids- Plainfield & Rockford Stores
Need kids clothes for a lot less? You’ll love that you can shop three different Grand Rapids thrift stores on Plainfield alone. Rockford shoppers will enjoy the cute shops with reimagined clothing and furniture treasures.
Want you or your house to look like a million bucks, but without spending it? The Ada/Cascade area has hot consignment items for you and your home. Lowell is very well known for its line of antiques shops down Main Street. (Tip: Flat River Cottage is a great place to buy Annie Sloan chalk paint!)
