I like history. I like old things. I grew up around antiques. My parent’s home was wall-to-wall full of them until my Mom’s house burned down in 2005. I have a new appreciation for things from the past that have been lost….photographs, family heirlooms, and such.

Chamblee’s Antique Row District Location
WHEW! I don’t think I even realized how many stores are part of the Chamblee Antique Row District! I’m even going to venture back! And if you live in Midtown Atlanta, and don’t want to break out the car (you might need the space to bring home your treasures, but…) you can take the MARTA Gold Line to Doraville, and exit at the Chamblee Station. You will have to exit the station, walk to Chamblee Tucker Road, turn right under the tracks, and then right on New Peachtree Road, and walk to the District from there. It’s a nice walk, past 5300 Lofts, and some of the historic store fronts that face the railroad tracks. (Another trip back in time!)
All this, and inside of Atlanta! Who knew!?
Come check out the Chamblee Antique Row District Holiday Open House, December 1 & 2! On your way back to the MARTA station, or if you are driving, be sure to stop at the Frosty Caboose for a treat. (Hopefully it will be a warm winter day for ice cream!) If you’re hungry, maybe a visit to Five Guys Burgers in Chamblee Plaza will be in order!
