Featured Trip Idea: Hunting for Antiques & Collectibles

Posted by Director on October 15, 2015

A treasure trove of beautiful antiques and collectibles are waiting to be discovered on Oregon’s South Coast.

There is a reason why antique and treasure hunters head to the coast so frequently. The Coos Bay area has a rich and unique history, making this region an antique lovers playground. Many travelers who have passed through this area have expressed their genuine surprise about the wide selection and the quality of collectibles and antiques that are commonly found.

“We were in Coos Bay and ended up walking around looking at antique stores,” says one traveler. “I was not sure what to expect, but we were both delighted with the variety of stores in Coos Bay.”

While visiting downtown Coos Bay, an easy stroll along S. Broadway (Hwy 101) will lead you to six renowned antique shops like The Gallery and Antique & Collectibles-Coos under the Tioga Building, Vintage 101, Old World Antiques, Antique & Auction Co. of Southern Oregon, and Leafs Treehouse Antiques & Collectibles.

In North Bend you’ll find antiques, collectibles and second hand goods within 2 blocks on Highway 101 including Fat Cat Antiques, Beauty & The Beast (now only open on Saturdays from 11:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M), The Mossy Rose, World Pawn Exchange, Pacific Antique & Books, Comics Unlimited and Simpkin’s Music Store.

You just never know what wonderful treasures you will find here, which makes Coos Bay a top destination for antique lovers. Here are just a few stores we’ve chosen to highlight in this post.
