August 17 is National Thrift Shop Day, and where better to enjoy some retail therapy than in The Palm Beaches, Florida? After all, it was voted one of the Best Destinations for Shopaholics by USA Today’s readers in 2015.
From Boca Raton to Jupiter and Tequesta, The Palm Beaches are a gold mine in the world of antiques and vintage finds. Lined with more than 40 established boutiques, Antique Row is a shopping mecca for these unique finds. However, you’d be remiss to pass by the luxury resale stores on Palm Beach’s Royal Poinciana Way, bohemian galleries in Northwood Village and chic shops in Boca Raton.
Wondering where to start? Here are some of the destination’s antique and vintage shops:
