Antique Shopping in an Antique Town
When the entire town is designated as a historic landmark it isn’t surprising to find really great antiquing opportunities.
Sophisticated collectors and general browsers alike, will not be disappointed with the proliferation of antique/collectible malls in the Rogue River Valley. A picker could be busy all day long, procuring that “rusty gold” rescued from the old barns or treasures that have languished, tucked securely away in attics. Decades ago Jacksonville was revitalized as an antiques emporium and that tradition is being revitalized by a broad selection of shops specializing in antiques and collectibles of all types.
Entering Jacksonville on 5th Street the first shop encountered is Cottage Antiques, complete with high end glass, clocks and china cabinets full of small collectibles.
Rounding the curve onto California Street, then a right on 4th Street is Pickety Place comes into view. This co-op-collective with a variety of vintage goods derived from the members features furniture, China, glass, linens & quilts and outdoor items.
Back at California & 3rd Streets is Trolley Stop Antiques. Located in the Historic US Hotel Building, the inventory is estate items. One can find 19th century paintings, jewelry, period furniture and folk art. An Estate Sale Service and workshops in jewelry design, multi-media art, rug hooking and more are offered. The shop is just across the street from where the trolley departs for its regular tours during the season.
To complete the Jacksonville antique experience be sure to pencil in the annual City Wide Yard Sale slated for the 2nd Saturday in September. You never know what treasures or vintage offerings you will discover. Residential and non-profits sales can begin on Friday and run through Sunday. For profit entities can have their sales Saturday – Sunday. The biggest day is Saturday, beginning at 7 am. This event draws regular visitors from Canada, California and Washington.
If you still haven’t found what you are looking for you may want to continue on to Medford and visit the antique/collectible malls. On Main & Riverside is the Glory Days Mall and the Main Antique Mall. On Court Streets you will find the Collectors Market and American Mercantile
On the way back to Jacksonville heading out on West Main Street stop by Acme Antiques for more industrial and manly choices.
