When we hear the term "antiques mall," we expect to be overwhelmed — a wide selection, numerous vendors, and the potential to spend at least an hour browsing. Luckily, Zinnias at Melrose delivers. With roughly 30 vendors, this mall offers an expansive selection of retro, modern, industrial, and the increasingly popular grandma chic. Like an everyday garage sale, this Seventh Avenue warehouse includes aisles of midcentury Pyrex dishware, vintage suitcases, discarded mannequins, commercial signage, and an endless sea of tchotchkes — souvenir cups, porcelain figurines, you name it. Of course, while Zinnia's at Melrose is a great way to save time and money in your antique shopping adventures, a good thrifter should always proceed with a keen eye — because while one man's trash is another man's treasure, it can easily end up the other way around.
