Olympia has an amazing array of antique stores. Who knew? The Antique Vintage Association of Olympia and the Greater South Sound Area have a handy map and a website to guide your shopping adventure. We visited Courtyard Antique Mall, home of Orange Fresh Vintage and many other sellers. You could probably spend a few days here and not see everything. It’s jam-packed with goodies of all kinds. If you are new to Washington and doing a full-on embrace of your new home, there are some fun Washington-themed items to be had.

Some of my favorite things:

  • Metalwork in the shape of Washington including this framed piece and some fun metal ornaments.
  • If you are a geographer or just like maps, this pillow with a map of Washington is for you.
  • Olympia breweries are a popular destination and this six-pack holder is super fun.
  • Several mid-century modern pieces including this dresser from Orange Fresh Vintage (they also have a matching side table)

Orange Fresh Vintage also has a lovely floral sofa that would have found a way home with me in my younger days, pre-big dogs.

There are 17 shops on the map in Downtown Olympia alone! That’s a lot of antiquing fun. Be sure to check out the site and pick up a map. And keep up with your favorites on Instagram or Facebook.

Be sure to check out Courtyard Antiques! They are open 7 days a week, 10 am – 6 pm
Location: 705 4th Ave E, Olympia WA 98506, 360-352-3864

Everything old is new again!


Today’s weather: Colder, low to mid-40s BUT–no rain. And I saw my first robin! Spring is coming!
