Kudzu Antiques
Somewhere between the pre-WWII Chinese tourism posters and the 19th-century bridal trunk, it becomes clear that KUDZU ANTIQUES has a hard time saying no.

Somewhere between the pre-WWII Chinese tourism posters and the 19th-century bridal trunk, it becomes clear that KUDZU ANTIQUES has a hard time saying no. This packrat's paradise covers about 25,000 square feet and hosts an average of 100 dealers in its Decatur warehouse. Looking for high-quality vintage clothes and shoes, primitive furniture, or such kitschy LPs as Music for Tired Golfers? Kudzu's got it. The staff is laid-back, yet eager to answer questions. Plan on spending a couple of hours browsing when you go, and bring a compass – you could get lost in there and end up for sale in one of the booths a few years from now. less...

The recent explosion of interest in midcentury modern relics has antiques dealer Lee Cuthbert knocking on wood (Heywood-Wakefield, of course). Her young Decatur store, Victory Vintage, specializes in post–World War II furniture, accessories, artwork and educational aids. Reproductions and retro-flavored paper goods are available, too. While her inventory is similar to that of shops such as City Issue and Twentieth Century Antiques, Cuthbert’s low prices and unusually personal customer service have us snagged. Look for swell discounts on items that haven’t moved for more than 60 days.
303 E. College Ave., Decatur. 404-373-5511. www.victoryvintage.com.
