Let’s Go Antique-ing, Part 2

Earlier this year, we shared just some of the wonderful antique shopping spots in Edmonton in part 1 of Let’s Go Antique-ing.  Now as warm summer breezes make long, blissful shopping days even more pleasant, we’re back with some more of our favourites that we’re sure you’ll love, too!

Ibon Antiques

Ibon Antiques is a feast for the eyes with an organized, but packed, showroom that is nearly 5000 square feet and two floors.  There is literally every kind of antique, vintage, and retro item from clothing to jewellry, home décor, dishes, collectables and a truly exceptional selection of furniture.  Hobbyists into furniture restoration, take note!  No matter what, if you’re into an afternoon peruse, Ibon is a mandatory stop when you’re in Old Strathcona.

Wee Book Inn

An Edmonton classic with two locations, the one located on Whyte Avenue (not far from Ibon) is our choice.  And while the Wee Book Inn isn’t exactly antique shopping, book lovers will adore the ‘old book’ smell of the shop.  Other quirks that add to the atmosphere are the creaky floors (especially on the second floor) and the lovely Himalayan cat named Fleur who you’ll see poking around the displays.  You’re sure to find some classics, first editions or perhaps something that reminds you of days gone by.

One Man’s Treasure

West of Edmonton, in Stony Plain is where you will find this charming shop that features antiques of all kinds – signs, tins, lamps, chandeliers, furnishings, china and more.  New items are posted regularly to their Facebook page, but the best way to see the selection is to drop in.  Like most antique shops, new items are always coming in so make an in-person visit and come back often.

Bonus:  While in Stony Plain, visit the Farmer’s Market which is just a 3-minute jaunt from One Man’s Treasure.

Blue Jar Antique Mall

Located smack dab between downtown and the west end, Blue Jar Antique Mall is a truly massive space (7000 square feet!!) of, as they describe it, “…antique, retro, and upcycled furniture, art, housewares and decor, the Blue Jar is a secret garden of inspiration to create the spaces you dream of.”.  A quick look at their Facebook page confirms that’s true, with daily posts of current and new items.  If you’re decorating a new home or looking for unique items for a wedding or event, this is the home of spectacular finds.

Rewards provided for more than one night, must be for consecutive nights under one registration under one name at one property. In addition, no more than up to three consecutive nights will be honoured. If a guest checks in for three days and then checks out and re-checks in for the next day, this is considered a consecutive night booking even if the second booking is made at different hotel.

There must be a minimum of three days between bookings.

Multiple reservations for the same person for the same night(s) is considered a double booking and only one of those bookings will be eligible for rewards. For example, if a guest books two nights on x and y date and then makes another two-night booking for the same dates at the same hotel or another hotel, EBH considers this a double booking and will honour rewards for only one of those bookings.

Is there a limit on the number of bookings I make on different dates? Edmonton Best Hotels welcomes repeat business. Some of our guests visit Edmonton every month. Please note as stated earlier there must be a minimum of three days between bookings. Please also note stated blackout dates.
