Want to know where your local antique dealers get their merchandise? Visit the Rockford Region and you'll figure it out in a hurry. We've got more than 30 antique shops, two major antique malls and more than a dozen weekend shows and flea markets. We're talking a weekend or more worth of antique shopping here, so you might want to make some hotel reservations before you visit.
In Rockford a unique variety of shops and specialty stores can make for a shopping experience like you have never had before. Shops like Urban Farmgirl and Salvaged by Sonya specialize in vintage finds that will make your house feel like it belongs in a magazine. The hip downtown T-shirt shop Rockford Art Deli is a favorite for anyone looking for a quick gift. Toad Hall and Culture Shock inspire everyone to start listing to vinyl records again. Stroll along downtown Rockford for many unique specialty stores in our historic River District, or stop by the shops at Edgebrook to catch their latest sales and specials.
Or, check out the Rockton Antique Shops throughout downtown Rockton and make it a fun day trip browsing the great variety of unique treasures that await. After all this, you will see that the Rockford area and antiques and hard to find collectibles go hand in hand.
We've also got more than our share of shopping malls with everything from high-end retailers to national discounters and "big box" chains. Add a liberal dose of specialty and garden shops along with a nice sprinkling of art galleries and you've got enough shopping to challenge all but the highest credit card limits. Charge!
