If you're at all interested in antiques, we have one word of advice, regarding Da Barn: Go. Located less than two hours from Chicago in New Buffalo, Michigan, this old barn is a scavenger's heaven. The prices are reasonable and the inventory seems endless.

Jump down for a whole slew of recent photos and to find out what, other than the name, makes this place so cool...

When visiting immense antique or thrift stores, we often find it hard to concentrate. With piles of furniture, artwork, and accessories scattered every which way, it's easy to get distracted and overwhelmed. Da Barn does have tons of stuff but what makes them stand out is their styling. Throughout the store, small collections of goods are stacked and arranged by color. This brilliant tactic gives the eye a moment of monochromatic rest and allows the shopper to refocus.

Lucite!


One of Da Barn's stronger points is vintage luggage. Suitcases, cosmetic carry-alls, hat boxes; they sell cases in all shapes and colors and each one we checked was nearly pristine.
