Best Vintage Shop: Grandview Mercantile
"Vintage" can have all sorts of different meanings. In this case, it meanscarefully curated antique items that span the decades - and categories. Grandview Mercantile houses furniture, glassware, jewelry, tapestries and assorted antiques from all sorts of time periods and from 80 different dealers from across the region. The fun part is its treasure-hunt appeal; even better is the size of the store, which is connected to ReVue, the consignment arm of the business. Why the "Grandview" in the name? The shop first opened in Grandview before moving to the Short North in 2002.
