Looking for Repurposed, Vintage, Antique and Resale Shops in Greater Grand Rapids?
I love browsing through antique stores, flea markets and thrift shops for unique items.
It’s also fun to find a special birthday or holiday gift. I’m an avid Amazon shopper, but it’s much more personal to shop local 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.
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
Need 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.
North of Grand Rapids- Plainfield & Rockford Stores
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!)
Ada, Cascade & Lowell Stores
The area west of Grand Rapids is a great place to find cute stores. You can find many that are filled with vendors with unique items and enjoy the ambiance at these small shops.
