Antiquing in Medina

A few weeks ago a friend had called to see if I would join her on an antique shopping trip to Medina. Of course I could not resist the opportunity to catch some great girl time while exploring vintage finds in a town relatively close to home, so off we went...

It was a rainy morning but the chilly air didn't dampen our spirits. The four of us met at Starbucks for coffee (because antiques look better when you've had some caffeine?) and then all jumped into one large car for our 25 minute car ride south. Instead of tackling the infamous Medina Antique Mall, we opted for a smaller, more off-the-beaten path store called Brothers Antique Mall (6132 Wooster Pike Medina, OH 44256).

The morning was spent discovering "new" china patterns from the 60's, scoring a few unique pieces of furniture for a new home, buying a collection of vintage black and white photographs of Paris & Florence, and lots of reminiscing (..."remember when we used to wear these?"..."remember when people used to use these?").

After a long morning of shopping we were starved. We quickly headed back to "the square" and enjoyed a great lunch at The Main Street Cafe ( The afternoon was a complete success...time to shop, eat and catch up, what could be better!
