Antiquing — the art of finding old treasures — can be a thrifty way to find the original knickknacks that turn a vanilla apartment into a cozy home. Many antique stores have multiple vendors, so almost anything could be tucked away around the next corner. Not everything is trophy-worthy, however. Shoppers looking for a bargain on décor and other sundries must have a deal-finding sense attuned to spot the hiding gems in the clutter. Hermann is not only a Mecca for Missouri wineries; the German settlement is also home to quite a few antique stores.
523 W. Ninth St.
John Wilding moved a 100-year-old barn from outside of Hermann into town to accommodate his antique business in 1975. Specializing in kitchen and farm collectibles, this is the place to go to check out old farm tools or buy mom a gift for her chicken-themed kitchen.
220 E. First St.
A traditional antique mall with multiple vendors, Hermann’s Attic Antique Mall is a place to spend some time. Owner Scott Bringhurst recently acquired the 3,000 square-foot shop of antiques, furniture, collectibles and other fun artifacts, and he added comics and records to the mix.
211 E. First St.
Owners Mike and Stephanie O’Toole opened this new addition to Hermann in October. Stephanie said they opened the shop because they are addicted to buying things. It specializes in the vintage, unusual and modern. The owners acquire items from estate sales, auctions, flea markets and even their own home.
205 1/2 E. First St.
Look up for this “basement” shop. It’s actually located on the second floor. The 13 rooms of the shop are full of different antiques: old quilts, fences and gates, bottles, pictures and some miscellaneous furniture.
117 E. Second St.
Since Sept. 1, 1981, owners Bruce and Bobbie Cox have been running their shop specializing in fire memorabilia. As a former firefighter, Bruce even has a small museum set up in the shop.
200 A. Market St.
With a mix of new and vintage jewelry, hats, cards, candles and gifts, Attic Treasures is a shopper’s paradise. In addition to new merchandise such as jewelry, hats and custom-made aprons, owners Susan and Terry Black also stock antique furniture, glassware and linens.
