#7. Richmond, IN

Why It’s a Great Place for Antiquers: Small, midwestern cities are havens for un-picked-over, reasonably priced antiques!

Why It’s a Great Place to Live: Richmond has won the All-America City Award not once, but twice. And it has beautiful architecture.

Best Place to Score an Amazing Deal: Abilities Thrift Store is a local second hand shop that trains differently-abled folks and sells very reasonably priced second hand goods. You’re sure to find some treasures here.

Best Place to Buy an Investment Piece: There are not one but two Antique Alley shopping routes near Richmond. Shop your way around the map and find your next dresser, end table or painting. 

Where to Fuel Up for a Day of Treasure-Hunting: In their own words, The Tin Lizzie Cafe is “a cross between your grandmother’s kitchen – where you can smell the comfort food cooking – and an eclectic museum.” Try the bagel and egg sandwich or a sandwich called “Unclaimed Happiness.”
