Urban Artifacts is located on Lincoln Avenue. A small storefront, it was filled to the rafters (literally - see the photo above) with interesting finds when we stopped in last weekend.

We've heard about and have seen some really nice purchases made at the shop from friends, but have not done shopping there ourselves. Rick, one of the proprietors, was manning the shop when we stopped by and was helpful and friendly - we liked what we saw and will be back. Prices were not low, but seemed do-able for the most part if you find a must-have item.

Here are a few more quick pics of current stock:

Classic pastille chair in yellow

We liked these mod caddies for office or kitchen storage

An interesting lounge for a sunny spot

We loved this king size headboard

There is no web presence, so you'll have to head over in person. Hours are Wed-Sun 1-6, but Rick says if the door is open on Monday or Tuesday, come on in...
