Lexington KY

#2. Lexington, KY

Why It’s a Great Place for Antiquers: Lexington smack-dab in the middle of the 127 Yard Sale route — also known as the world’s longest yard sale. That means you’ll have 60+ miles of great deals stretching in either direction!

Why It’s a Great Place to Live: Lexington is one of Livability’s Top 100 Best Places to Live in 2019. If you’re a student or teacher, Lexington’s four colleges and universities make it a great city for you. It also has a strong economy and 130(!) public parks. 

Best Place to Score an Amazing Deal: Lexington Peddlers’ Mall has hundreds of vendors in one spot and it’s open seven days a week.

Best Place to Buy an Investment Piece: Scout Antique & Modern. Beautifully curated with an eye towards furniture, like this Italian burled table for $425 or this set of teak Danish dining chairs for $1,600.

Where to Fuel Up for a Day of Treasure-Hunting: Coffee Times Coffee House is a Lexington institution; it’s been open since 1983. Grab a cup of their cappuccino tea (Cinnamon tea, steamed milk, and honey topped with homemade whipped cream) before you start shopping.
