Stores with antique (or antique-looking) furniture in Seattle?
May 4, 2019 2:00 PM   Subscribe

I'm on the hunt for an antique (or antique-looking) wood dining table. Can you recommend stores in Seattle that I should check out?

I'm really just looking for stores that carry things like this, but in case someone has a magical lead, my ideal table would be no bigger than 48" (even MORE ideally: with an extension leaf and/or drop-leaf). At this point my price range is wide -- I'm hoping to find something that will last decades.

I'd love to hear about your favorite Seattle furniture stores that might have some options! I'd also consider using a local interior designer if you have any recommendations. Thanks so much in advance.

Sansaco is my go-to store so far, but they only had a few approximately 48" tables today. Not sure whether they had leaves to add length. Note that they may be cheaper than other stores but their return policy is strict according to the negative reviews I have seen online. Other visits have yielded far more antique-style pieces.

Oh my good gravy, you must check out Ballard Consignment.

Check out the Salvation Army in SODO. It is not your average thrift store. It sometimes has very nice vintage wood furniture.

Where I live, Craigslist/antiques often has beautiful tables. Fb/Marketplace is gaining in popularity, so worth checking.

I was also going to recommend Craigslist.

If you don't need it on any specific timeframe, definitely join your neighborhood's Buy Nothing group. Antique tables are kind of like pianos and mattresses: important to buy one of good quality for your everyday use, but when you decide to not have it, it's bulky enough that you would give it away for free just so someone will haul it away.

Failing that, Ballard consignment.

The Goodwill in Bellevue.

I love Homestead Seattle , but it’s a bit of a splurge!

Head down to sodo and check out Earthwise and the antique malls around there. Can't remember which are still active but there used to be one down 4th and another up closer to Georgetown. There's also a place near the very north end of Georgetown that had a lot of great heavy vintage furniture when I was there a few weeks ago, can't remember the name but it's on the main drag.
