The Best Vintage Furniture Stores in Austin

Collection of vintage furniture from stores in Austin

Everything’s big­ger in Texas. That includes antique and vin­tage stores, too. While some vin­tage stores are quaint, many of the stores in Austin boast thou­sands of square feet with exten­sive inven­to­ries of vin­tage goods to peruse. 

Here at Apt­De­co, we love a good vin­tage fur­ni­ture find. Choos­ing vin­tage is one of the most sus­tain­able ways to fur­nish your home since you’re giv­ing a sec­ond (and per­haps a third or fourth) life to a qual­i­ty piece of fur­ni­ture. Because vin­tage fur­ni­ture is incred­i­bly chic and eas­i­ly fits in with numer­ous styles, you can com­plete­ly trans­form your space with one unique piece. 

Austin has a ton of vin­tage and antique options, with some focus­ing sole­ly on cloth­ing or home goods. How­ev­er, most offer stores a wide vari­ety of vin­tage goods. With such vari­ety, you’re sure to find some­thing you love.
