What are your local antique/vintage faves?

I'm right now cooking up a retail feature for the Observer's upcoming Living Here guide, and we're aiming to focus on some of the area's notable antique and vintage shopping options. Obviously, this kind of story would be incomplete without mentioning, say, the Sleepy Poet Antique Mall on South Boulevard, with its 55,000 square feet of selection and super-cool vintage clothing corner, or the cluster of shops on Central Avenue in Plaza Midwood. But I'm wondering: Where else in the region do you head to seek out surprising, interesting, idiosyncratic antiques and vintage items? I've got some other ideas, too, but I'd love your input - so if you have thoughts, post away in the comments and let me know. Thanks!

The Gibson Depot in Concord is great.

I am a big fan of South End Exchange located just down from Prices Chicken on Camden Road.

Absolutely Sleepy Poet. I would never recommend Southend Exchange, as the owner was incredibly rude to me.
