March 28, 2011 8:00 AM

Sometimes when you’re shopping for something new, what you’re really looking for is something old — antiques, that is. Bring home a little piece of the past by visiting one of Atlanta’s premier antiques and collectible shops.

Antiques and Beyond

1853 Cheshire Bridge Road NE
Atlanta, GA 30324
(404) 872-4342

This large, sprawling venue showcases goods from 70 different merchants. The atmosphere and most of the goods are upscale — think antique silverware, rare pieces of hand-carved furniture, lovely and delicate knickknacks — but you’ll also spy the occasional bit of old, quirky and affordable memorabilia. A helpful staff makes sure you find exactly what you’re looking for.

Atlanta Antique Gallery

3550 Broad St., Suite A
Chamblee, GA 30341
(770) 457-7444

A bright, lovely store with a vast assortment of antiques and collectibles in all price ranges. Items run the gamut from porcelain, glass and fine jewelry to signed sports memorabilia and vintage hats. Open seven days a week, so any day is a good day to stop by and browse.

Red Baron’s Antiques

6450 Roswell Road
Atlanta, GA 30328
(404) 252-3770

If you’re in the market for large, rare or unusual antiques, then Red Baron’s is the place for you. There’s no telling what you might find each time you visit their huge gallery; maybe an antique carousel or a vintage rickshaw or a towering statue that looks like it was lifted straight from the garden of a French palace. What about a 50-year-old Rolls Royce or a 100-year-old pool table? The possibilities seem endless. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to browse because you’ll definitely be here for a while.

Kudzu Antique Market

Decatur, GA 30030

A favorite among locals for more than 30 years, this big pink building is crammed with an amazing collection of items. You’ll find a nice assortment of jewelry, furniture, folk art and knickknacks, along with plenty of funky, affordable pieces from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. Annual events are fun, too, like the holiday shopping parties in winter and the parking lot sale every spring.

Highland Row Antiques

628 N. Highland Ave.
Atlanta, GA 30306

Its storefront may look small, but Highland Row Antiques manages to pack plenty of intriguing objects inside.
