With that in mind, here are a few of our favorite general and/or niche antique shops in Ohio.

These Are the Antique Stores in Ohio You Need to Visit

Fairfield County is home to some of the Buckeye State’s best antique shops and malls. Each of these locations has a unique flair. And there’s a distinct possibility with any one of them that they’ve just gotten in that bookcase you’ve been dying to find, or maybe it’s that 18th-century carving you didn’t even know you needed…

So, let’s take a look, shall we?!

And really, could there be any better piece to stand its noble guard in your home’s entryway or foyer?

Bodenheimer-Mayer House

It’s one of the more beloved antique shops in Ohio, but the Bodenheimer-Mayer House almost functions more like a museum for regional art.
