Guide to Vintage Furniture Shops in North Miami: Affordable Finds

When you need a dresser, don't march like a boring bourgeois zombie toward the nearest IKEA or Target. Why bring home another lame piece of furniture when you can score one with character and history, sometimes for the same lump of loot?

North Miami is a neighborhood brimming with troves of antique treasures. Better yet, many of the neighborhood's shops are clustered together, making it easy to stroll from store to store in search of your missing piece. 

In this guide, we'll explore some of the more affordable antique shops: the shops near Biscayne on NE 123rd Street. (Lookout for the next installment for information on the more exclusive set of shops known as "20th Century Row.")
