My boyfriend and I stop in regularly. The selection is amazing, quality merchandise. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable.

[TL;DR: Eclectic vintage items with modern things sprinkled in. Old cameras, books, pottery, jewelry, artwork, knick knacks, cashmere sweaters. Vintage items can be (understandably) pricy, but there's plenty of bargains too.The staff are lovely and there's ample nearby parking!] What's not to love about a cozy antique shop? Stepping in here brings on a bout of sensory overload; because multiple seller's items are packed in one shop, things are arranged in no particular order. It's the quintessential Antique Shop Experience™: everywhere you look there's clusters of jewelry, books, silverware, knick knacks, pottery, paintings, sculptures, and so on. You could easily spend half a day combing through everything. Prices tend to be a little high for me, but many of the items for sale are genuine vintage things so you get what you pay for. That said, it's not hard to find a steal; this time my total came to $18 ($5 for the copy of Treasure Island, $6 for the comic book, and $6 for the watercolor set. It works great!). I almost took the tiny metal ship sculpture with me but managed to resist the temptation. The staff (and their music choices) are wonderful! The friendly gentleman who helped me had an 80s hits playlist on, which I loved. Finally, parking/accessibility: there's street parking right outside the store and a lot beside the nearby graveyard. The shop is one level, so no stairs to climb (unlike the equally nice antique shop a few doors down from Thoreauly).

Medium-sized antique store located in the heart of Concord. Eclectic collection mostly focused on smaller items. Friendly, professional staff.

Nice spot with an interesting selection of antiques, though you will find some newish items mixed in to the vintage and antique offerings. I've found some gems here over the years.

I love this antique shop! I teach nearby and stop in once a month to see what goodies I can find! I love old children's toy blocks and have bought many here...
