Top 5 Vintage Stores in Queens

Sparrs_pic4. Spaar’s Antiques & Militaria
41-15 Broadway
Astoria

 

Walk into this Astoria shop and walk into another century. In business since 1946, Spaar’s doesn’t look like it’s changed much since it first opened, and is still primarily known for its great assortment of antique war relics, including grenades, swords and firearms more than a century old. However, those on the prowl for more decorative antiques shouldn’t let the emphasis on wartime artifacts scare them off. There are also some beautiful turn-of-the-century pieces throughout the shop at extremely fair prices. A recent walkthrough unveiled a gorgeous pair of hand-painted 1800’s oil lamps converted to electric, as well as some quality prints and an architectural wooden plant stand straight out of the New York Times styles section going for half of what we’ve seen at trendier vintage Brooklyn shops.
