Wright Square Vintage & Retro Mall
With more than 30 dealers, Wright Square Vintage & Retro Mall has a little something for everyone. Specializing in vintage and retro rather than plain old antiques, you can find everything from cameras to records, clothing to furniture, books and a variety of signage. They are extremely price-conscious and always have competitive prices. Here, you won’t have to worry about finding meaningless junk. Owner Andy Sher’s rule of thumb for his vendors: “If you have to dust it, it isn’t for us.”
