Just north of the Broadway Antique Market
, this shopping dream of 20th-century furniture and collectibles is worth a stop for a visual feast of home decorating ideas, even if your wallet is currently empty. From the elegantly small (salt-n-pepper shakers, tea towels and Bakelite brooches) to the strikingly large (Mission-style bureaus, Art Deco light fixtures and Eames armchairs), your wants will definitely surpass your needs.
With 35 dealers, the mall's range and collection represent daily life from past decades, drawing together picture-perfect scenes of vintage clothing, jewelry, appliances, rugs, wall hangings and mid-century modern furnishings. Be careful before you get too excited about that one piece you can't live without, though: Some of the amazing shelving units and bookcases are for display only.
