There’s something about an antique that creates a sense of wonder, and even a little mystery. After all, what is an antique if not a piece of history, telling a story about a unique time and place? 

Kentucky’s rich history lends itself to excellent antiquing and thrift shopping. You can visit shops specializing in antique firearms, old books and prints, architectural salvage and collectibles of all kinds – ranging from Kentucky’s frontier days to the Civil War, and all the way through the 20th century. Visit the town of Hazel, nicknamed the Antiques Capital of Kentucky, to shop more than 10 unique stores with countless incredible finds. From large antique malls to hole-in-the-wall shops, look closely: you might just discover a museum-quality piece.
