Brass Armadillo This antique mall is home to more than 600 unique dealers. It's easy to completely lose track of time exploring every avenue. If you're searching for military memorabilia, Depression-era collectibles, kitchen wares, or vintage furniture, it's all under the Armadillo's roof. Shopping makes you tired? No worries. Take a seat in a café area and grab a snack at the Armadillo Eatery, located in the northwest corner of the mall.

Antique Haven If vintage jewelry is your thing, a visit to Antique Haven is a must. This shop has held its own in downtown Glendale for 25 years, and it houses the biggest collection of vintage costume and fashion jewelry we've seen. Gold lockets, vintage cameos, and loose stones are only a tiny fraction of what you'll find in this whimsical little shop. Price points vary greatly depending on the piece you're looking for. We found a coral statement necklace for $29 and were completely enamored with the amazing selection of Bakelite bracelets. Those will set you back about $750 apiece. Take the plunge, and you're sure to walk away with a fashionable piece of history.

Antique Treasures In January 2013, new owners took over this space and have worked to give it a fresh feel. Customer service is great, and the prices are very competitive. Our favorite finds included a vintage rattan plant stand at $9, and a victorian sofa in perfect condition, on sale for $275. Our favorite piece by far, though, is the 11-foot taxidermy polar bear (yes, you read that right) towering over the aisles in the back corner of the store.

Matilda's Closet Also located in downtown Glendale, this vintage clothing shop is overwhelming -- in the best way. Ring the doorbell and Rose, the shop owner, lets you in. Her spunk, passion for her business, and giddy personality win you over in a heartbeat. At Matilda's Closet, each rack overflows with beautiful vintage pieces, all sorted by decade. Walk through and you'll find the perfect pair of 1970s bellbottoms, and just a few steps over is a gorgeous 1950s Sunday dress. The shop also has a large collection of vintage shoes, hats, bags, and men's clothing. Our pick? A breezy 1940s gingham sundress priced at $29.

Estate Resale This Northwest Valley shop is the perfect place to find that obscure piece you never knew you needed. Estate Resale has called Sun City home for the past 18 years. (If you're really up for an adventure, take a trip the brand new second location in Surprise.) With delivery and pickup service, shopping is a breeze. Large estate pieces line the sales floor, and the vintage stock is in incredible condition. This stove, priced at $228, caught our attention the moment we walked in.
