Denver is known for many things, from our world-class cultural attractions and thriving craft breweries to our close proximity to the soaring Rocky Mountains. However, one of our lesser-known attributes is being an “Antiquing Destination.”
People from all around the nation come to our region just for our amazing selection of antique and vintage shops. We even have an entire antiquing district: Denver’s Antique Row, which is packed full of antique shops, bookstores, bakeries and more. But because there are so many great places to shop here in the Mile High City, we rounded up just a few of our favorites in the area. On this list, you’ll find everything from small shops to massive antique malls—all of which offer a trove of hidden treasures for you to explore. Happy shopping!
