Hodge Podge Art, Antiques & Interiors, Monroe

This charming shop in Monroe, known as the Antiques Capital of Georgia, is located in historic Walton Mill in the heart of downtown. The name suits the 48,000-square-foot retailer perfectly, as it contains a mix of decor items, antiques and other keepsakes. Shoppers will find everything from centuries-old French china, primitive items, hand-carved furniture, lace, Tiffany lamps (above), vintage signs, fine crystal, Civil War relics, reclaimed wood and everything in between. It’s easy for antique lovers to make a day of it, thanks to an on-site cafe, appropriately called Vintage Brew (below). Keep an eye out for occasional classes on topics such as furniture painting and jewelry making.

Picker Joe’s Antique Mall & Vintage Market, Savannah

You may have the sense that you’re stepping back in time at this 10,000-square-foot store in the Hostess City. Opened in 2013, its inventory of more than 35,000 items is constantly changing, and it’s a destination for collectibles and antiques including furniture, vintage lighting, rare books, coins, jewelry and much more. It’s also a favorite for those seeking a one-of-a-kind piece for a renovation or a new build, thanks to an entire back room dedicated to architectural salvage. Those looking to stay authentic with the mid-century trend will find plenty of treasures from the Danish and Scandinavian modern, Hollywood regency and atomic age styles. While you’re there, stop for refreshments at the on-property vintage coffee and soda shop, where you can get a taste of a local favorite: Leopold’s Ice Cream.

Toscoga Marketplace, Thomasville

This 18,000-square-foot shop in Georgia’s Rose City is a favorite for designers, design enthusiasts and antique lovers.
