If anything architectural is missing from your midtown home, chances are it’s wound up at South Front Antiques.

The three-story shop is full of light fixtures, windows, mantles, claw foot bathtubs, furniture and hardware. The basement is almost entirely filled with doors that are sort of filed standing up.

It’s the sort of shop where great finds are lurking around every corner. Just be careful – if you look around the same corner I did, you’ll come face to face with a wall full of very angry-looking mounted deer heads.

Theyre all What are you lookin at?

They're all "What are you lookin' at?"

South Front Antiques has been open for more than 30 years, which means that they’ve amassed quite a collection of stuff. There are some really unique things there, like a pinball machine, a bear skin rug, more random disembodied antlers than I’ve ever seen in one place, and a book called, presumptuously, “The Greatest Book Ever Written” (only $2).

South Front Antiques is open Tuesday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Plan to take your time – there’s a lot to see.

    This place looks awesome! Thanks so much for sharing – I just bought a house that needs some aesthetic TLC and this seems to be just the place.
