An abundance of small theaters aren’t the only things North Hollywood has to offer. Travel further north on Lankershim Boulevard past Burbank Boulevard and you’ll find a plethora of antiques and vintage stores, all within walking distance from each other.
Before heading to the Pasadena Rose Bowl flea market on Sunday (see previous post about my visit), I finally made time to hit the antique stores in my own neighborhood.
Most of the stores are closed Sundays because the owners also sell at local flea markets, so your best bet might be to stop by during the weekdays and Saturdays. Generally, they’re open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., but it’s a good idea to call and double-check with the stores (Click the jump cut below for a full list of addresses and phone numbers).
From Hollywood Regency decor to ’60s space age seating to Queen Anne dining sets and a few movie props thrown into the mix, there’s a style and decade to please buyers and browsers alike. I’m a huge fan of mid century & Danish modern, and the stores definitely have plenty of it to offer. Some of my favorite finds included a slatted George Nelson-style wood bench for $60 at Frank’s Antiques, a Danish modern chair for $25 at Angel’s Antiques and a set of 4 wire dining chairs from Santiago’s for $350.
