Top 5 Vintage Stores in Queens

22-08 Astoria Boulevard


Next time you have an hour (or four) to kill in Astoria, look no further than the Furniture Market. This sprawling two-story vintage furniture and knick-knack shop is legendary in the area for supplying set pieces for some of the biggest TV series and films to shoot in New York City, including The Sopranos, Sex and the City and Gossip Girl, among others. That means at any given moment the store is chock-a-block with interesting pieces, including the last time we visited, when we found a gorgeous chartreuse velvet couch, lovely mid-century lamps in great condition and a fantastic assortment of accent chairs in every style tucked away in a hidden corner on the basement level. And if you’re not looking to invest in furniture, it’s still worth braving the maze of goods for everything from vintage jewelry to small and large paintings to an oddly huge selection of wooden boxes.  Some price tags might make eyes roll, but everything is priced to be negotiated, with pieces going up to 50 percent off the listed rate.
