Boulder’s Best: Five dam good places to shop for antiques

Boulder City is a place of many destinations.

People visit town to eat at the restaurants, participate in special events, experience history and enjoy small-town life. They also come to shop for antiques at one of the many stores in town.

To help shoppers scout out vintage items and collectibles, the Boulder City Review has compiled a list, in no particular order, of some of the best dam antique stores in town.

Goatfeathers Emporium,

1300 Wyoming St.

This store features two floors of wall-to-wall antiques, rare gifts and other items for sale from different vendors. It also has books, clothes, vinyl records, furniture, cookware, glassware and handmade items available for purchase.

“We have new items (and) hand-crafted antiques,” said Margene West of Goatfeathers. “I think that’s why we do pretty well because there is such a variety.”

West said the business has been in Boulder City for about 20 years. It’s open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.

Boulder Vintage,

508 California Ave.

Boulder Vintage features seasonal decor, scented candles and antiques.

“I try to keep it seasonal,” said owner Glena Dunn. “It’s a mix of really unique antiques. I try to keep it pretty.”

Dunn said she does that by changing the store displays weekly.

She started the business in December as a Christmas pop-up market and then revamped it in January.

Boulder Vintage is currently open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday and she said she hopes to expand her hours during the holiday season.

Bella Marketplace,

1212 Wyoming St.

Bella Marketplace is large antique store filled with items for sale from different vendors. It’s like going on a treasure hunt with new finds around each corner.

The 9,000-square-foot store also has craft supplies and offers DIY painting classes. Additionally, it offers classes on how to refinish and upscale old furniture.

It’s open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays.
