It’s a new year. You’ve finished decluttering, and with the winter weather, you’ve probably watched a slew of home-improvement and home decorating shows.

Check out these Waynesboro area antique and second-hand stores!



In Town:


Alpha and Omega / 232 Arch Ave.

Alpha and Omega is a classic antique store, specializing in all things vintage and unique. Look for major additions like architectural details and furniture, or cozy up your space with mid-century quilts, collectibles, primitives and pottery. You can also find prints and paintings to brighten up your walls. If you’re a collector, you can score big on Civil War relics, maps, and fossils. Alpha and Omega also carries a large selection of books, records, dolls, and local memorabilia.


Layne’s / 1739 N. Delphine Ave.

Layne’s Antiques has been a Waynesboro staple for years. The multi-level space is a lot bigger than it looks from outside, and it is loaded with goodies of all sorts, from furniture to small collectibles. If you’re seeking knowledge about antiques, the owners have plenty and are willing to share.


Tubular Toy Box / 142 N Wayne Ave.

Vintage, pre-loved, and new toys will make you feel like a kid again at Tubular Toy Box! The store also carries comics, locally handcrafted goods and other awesome finds. Looking for something specific and vintage? Ask and they might be able to find it! 


Rummage for Rescue / 1432 Lyndhurst Rd.

Do you have a soft spot for rescued animals? Even if you don't, Rummage for Rescue has something for everyone! Open every Saturday, Rummage for Rescue proceeds directly benefit homeless cats and dogs in the Waynesboro area. Come find a treasure and help a pet in need at the same time.





Stuarts Draft Antique Mall / 3304 Stuarts Draft Hwy.

Head out of town on 340 to Stuarts Draft, where 50 dealers stock the well-organized booths at Stuarts Draft Antique Mall. This mall has been in operation for 26 years and it’s open seven days a week. You can find sturdy antique furniture as well as collectibles and artwork. There’s even a vintage fashion section that sells purses, shoes, hats, dresses and more. You’ll experience strong feelings of nostalgia as you view items from times and lives past.


Factory Antique Mall / 50 Lodge Ln.

Formerly a Genesco clothing factory, the Factory Antique Mall has been growing and thriving since 1996. In fact, at over 135,000 square feet, it’s the largest antique mall in the country! You might need a few hours (or more) to explore the whole place, but fortunately there’s a cafe inside. Voted Best in the Valley by Virginia Living Magazine for the past nine years, the mall will evoke memories of another era. You’ll find jewelry, toys from your youth (and before), furniture, primitives, historical memorabilia, collectibles, and more. The webpage is helpfully ordered into sections and each offers a glimpse of what you might find inside.


Verona Antiques / 307 Lee Hwy.

Just down the road, find Verona Antiques, another shop housed in a building with a former life, this time a roller rink. Verona Antiques strives to offer you the best prices on high-quality antiques, cool art, and furniture. New merchandise is added all the time, and the website offers peeks of what’s available.


Treasures for Love / 2296 Jefferson Hwy.

Treasures for Love is clean and organized. Inside, you’ll find lots of second-hand furnishings, decor, and clothing for good prices. Proceeds support LOVE Inc, which helps local churches support the community’s needy.


The internet is loaded with tutorials on how to clean and give new life to your second-hand finds. Head out and treasure hunt in and around Waynesboro to find something amazing today.
