On the Hunt: Antiquing in Wisconsin

Rummage sale season doesn’t start up for a few weeks. So for the thrill of the hunt, head indoors for some antiquing fun. Sentimental, conversational, or historic items, you never know what treasures you’ll find. Why not make it an all-day affair? Or, for our die-hard hunters, an all-weekend affair? We’ve outlined an itinerary, starting in Green Bay and ending in Oshkosh.

Time for Antiques in Green Bay
Start the morning off in Green Bay’s historic Broadway District at Somewhere in Time Antique Mall. With more than 100 dealers, you’ll find everything from paintings to collectable timepieces. Turn back the clock with free old-fashioned sodas and popcorn while you shop.

Vintage Finds in Appleton
Next, head south to Fox River Antique Mall in Appleton. You’ll find shabby chic furniture and vintage home décor in two buildings that cover 30,000+ square feet. When it’s time for a lunch break, Italian lovers will fall head-over-heels for the nearby Carmella’s an Italian Bistro. Their house-made marinara and Bolognese sauces are so popular, you can buy a jar to take home.

Architectural Salvage in Oshkosh
Continue your journey to Oshkosh’s Crescent Moon Antiques and Salvage for the ultimate trash-to-treasure experience. Crescent Moon specializes in architectural salvage materials, like bricks, lighting, and turn-of-the-century iron pieces. They also have doors and flooring — everything to make your home unique.
