Where are the antiques?

Unfortunately the antique shops on Pine Street aren't what they were 10+ years ago. In fact, you'll have to look hard to actually find any real antiques. Shops and wares vary... read more

If you are wanting to get away from the traffic and city noise, escape a few blocks across from Philadelphia's CBD to Antique Row (Pine Street). Here you will find quaint small houses just off the road, quiet benches to rest your weary feet and relaxed sunshine with bird song. Cute little antique shops and bookstores beckon you closer and...

Historic Antique Row has taken a bad rap lately... Pine Street was and still is a GREAT place for all to shop.... You can find Antiques, treasures from past, present and future!!!!!! It is great to see every store front filled with new shops... If you want to shop, shop Pine Street!!!! Pine Street is the place to be!

Out of towner visited the Antique Row with money in hand. My first impression, which is what is all about, were dealers were rude, unwelcoming.

Many antiques dealers have shut shop these days but a handful still remain. Great place to browse or buy. I especially like Blendo, a not-strictly-Antique store at the corner of 10th & Pine offering some old and new tchotchkes at reasonable prices...

You can easily visit Antique Row and South Street on foot during the same outing. Lots of beautiful shops and interesting window gazing. Especially nice is The Spirit of the Artist, which carries only American, handmade work in a wide range of media--gorgeous wood carvings, pottery, glass, jewelry. Loved it. www.sotagifts.com

Very few shops, a lot of empty storefronts. Spend your time elsewhere.
