The 10 Best Antique Stores in Virginia!

Virginia’s rich history makes for prized antiquing. One never knows when one might come across a Civil War-era relic or a piece of furniture from the founding of our nation. It is this possibility that makes the search for antiques across Virginia all the more exciting. Below are 10 of the must-hit stops on any antique road trip.

1. Black Dog Salvage, Roanoke, VA

Black Dog Salvage is known for the television show “Salvage Dawgs,” which airs on HGTV and DIY. They are most interested in “repurposing and resale of architectural, commercial, and industrial elements and fixtures including salvaged mantels, doors, windows, stained glass, wrought iron, vintage pluming and hardware, period lighting, art tile, unique old house parts, gates,” and more. With over 40,000 square-feet of warehouse space, the Black Dog offers a full-on marketplace in addition to their own wares. Paint furniture, check out other unique vendors, and stop by the design center for custom design work. You could easily spend a few days in with the Black Dog and still not see everything. In other words, this place is an antique lover’s dream.
