Whether you’re just getting started in antiquing or if it’s been a lifelong hobby, you’ll find that the hunt for the eclectic and historic is easy and unpretentious in the Pensacola Bay Area.
While Pensacola has upscale antique stores filled with chandeliers and armoires, it also has a wide range of fun and funky standalone antique shops and malls where dozens of vendors sell everything from Civil War-era items to the hippest mid-century accouterments.
A quaint collection of shops known as Pensacola’s Antique Row lines Navy Boulevard as you head west from downtown.

You can spend hours searching through spots like Blue Moon Antiques, Oooodles, and Antiques and More just to name a few.
Miles Antique Mall, near Cordova Mall, has the claim to fame of being Florida’s Largest Antique Mall. With more than 1.5 acres and 500-plus vendors under one roof, it’s a mix of antiques, furniture, local art and other unique finds. It’s a full afternoon of shopping all on its own.
In Pensacola proper, serious antique seekers should stop by Poor Richards Antiques, a premiere antique store with beautiful finds including furniture and mirrors imported from Europe.
And, if you’ve just come to browse and not buy, some of the neatest antiques can be found at two local museums-the National Naval Aviation Museum aboard NAS Pensacola and the T. T. Wentworth, Jr. Florida State Museum in downtown Pensacola.
So, whether you have $5.00 or $5,000, you can make a day of pickin’ through Pensacola’s wide range of antique shops and stops.
