Best High-End Antiques - 2008
Antiques on Central
The best high-end antique shop in the Valley is in the center of the city, on the northeast corner of Central and Camelback. Victorian writing tables, cherry wood waterfall bureaus, and Deco dining suites share space with Eames chairs and Mondrian prints — every era of fine furniture is represented here, and shares space with a wide variety of smaller pieces, like the vintage shaving kit we bought for $22, or the '30s ceramic planter shaped like Shirley Temple for a little less than 50 bones. Bargain shoppers will be happy with the many great deals to be had on glassware, dishes, and religious arcana, too — and be sure to tell your friend the vintage Christmas ornament collector about the shocking display of really old bulbs and blown-glass bits on sale at this, our new favorite antiques mall.
