Walked to Antique Row, followed the signs and then realized we had passed through it without seeing an open or welcoming antique store. This was in the middle of a beautiful spring week day. After checking the map and other reviewers, we realized the area isn't what it used to be. Nice walk, nice area - no worth seeking out... More

Only a few interesting stores but nice walk. There probably was a time when this area was attractive and well maintained. Sadly, that is no longer the case. The name belies the reality. It is not a row of antique stores.

While I love spending the day between 9th and 11th and Pine and then heading over to South Street for the day, Antique Row's demise may not necessarily be the crash of 2008 (which was my original graceful conclusion), the dealers have always been aloof and treated customers like a bother and probably not worth their time. There's a reason... More

There are only two stores selling antique furniture. A lot fewer than several years ago. Jeffry L. Biber has a wonderful store featuring decorative arts with a distinctive selection of silver. There are are a couple of galleries and some stores with eclectic stock. I would not come here looking for antique furniture.

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. Asked one dealer about an item and response was rude, like I should have ALREADY known the answer. And another dealer last thing to say to me after telling me to leave the store because... More

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. An interesting people watching stroll in good weather.

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
