There’s nothing better than discovering the perfect vintage piece, antique or collectible item. Whether it’s over a century old or something that’s just “formerly new,” the hunt sometimes is just as much fun as the final find. A bad-weather day can be instantly turned into a brilliant day if you get to spend it holed up inside a one of these Greater Lansing places poking around for hours on end. Love vintage postcards? Pull up a stool and pour over boxes and boxes of them. Want a specialty Santa for your Christmas mantelpiece or are you in search of some great classic books to add to your shelves? How about a mid-century modern dinette set or the perfect pair of Calvin Kleins? Greater Lansing has a wide variety of places for you to shop.
