Twentieth-century antique lovers beware: You are guaranteed to find many must-have-now items at the Edgewater Antique Mall. Hosting 45 furniture and decorative arts dealers, the range of objects is impressive:
appliances and dishware, artwork and prints, light fixtures and rugs. The real draw, though, is all that furniture in the front windows: Mission-style bureaus, Art Deco bars and consoles, and Eames armchairs.
Pricing seems set for some vendor competition (plus all the pieces we saw were in excellent condition), but expect to pay for your bit of design history. A stop at the Edgewater Antique Mall can take a chunk of time, so it's good to make an afternoon out of it.
The large mall isn't so tightly packed that you can't meander through comfortably, and we love that. Take your time, take some notes, gather inspiration, and check out a few other places while you're in Edgewater like the Broadway Antique Market
and the enormous Hancock Fabrics
(both just south on Broadway Avenue), if you're feeling inspired to start up a new project.
