Antique Malls In Illinois

One man's junk is another man's treasure.

Antique Malls In Illinois

I love going to thrift stores, antique malls, garage sales and consignment shops. It's always fun looking around those types of places to find something that catches my eye. As the saying goes, "one person's junk is another person's treasure," because you never know what you could find! There are many antique malls in Illinois that I haven't even heard of, and I'm sure many other people haven't either.

1. Volo Antique Mall

This antique mall is located in Volo, IL. This mall has four different stores inside it. Three antique malls, and a mercantile mall which specializes in antiques, gifts, collectibles, home furnishing and much more. There are over 400 dealers located inside this mall, so there's so much to look at!

2. St. Claire Antique Mall

This antique mall is located in Fairview Heights, IL which is 15 minutes from St. Louis. This mall has 200 dealers with booths set up crock ware, glassware and furniture. With over 20,000 square feet, they have 150 display booths and 75 showcases.

3. Edgewater Antique Mall

This antique mall is located in Chicago, IL. This mall offers Chicago the best furniture and decorative arts. There are only 40 dealers at this mall, but all their booths are stocked with furniture or art from the last century.

4. Marion Antique Mall

This antique mall is located in Marion, IL. This mall offers glassware, furniture, collectibles, jewelry and nice home décor.

5. Springfield Antique Mall

This antique mall is located in Springfield, IL. This one has over 750 dealers who travel the 50 states, Canada and England to make sure they find the best antiques to display. There are 500 booths displayed inside this mall. If there is anything in your house you want to get rid of, you can rent out your own booth here and set up an account to sell your antiques. They offer over 75,000 square feet of space to display booths.

6. East State Antique Mall

This mall is located in Rockford, IL. There are many unique items located here such as collectibles and vintage treasures. I have been to this one many times and always leave satisfied. There are 120 dealers with quality merchandise. They even have vintage jewelry and antique furniture. One other thing they have that some antique malls have is the layaway system. If you find something you want but can't afford it right away, they put it on layaway for you for 30 days until you have the money.

I am an antique store junky, so whenever I hear about a new place to visit, I have to go check it out. Most people think secondhand items are junk, but to some people you can find something to treasure forever.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
