Antique stores are full of mystery and intrigue. So many objects from different decades that have all lived former lives. How many conversations were had in that lovely velvet chair? Did that ornate frame hold a baby photo or show off an incredible wedding dress? The possibilities of what you can find are truly endless as are the stories to go with each piece.
Here are my picks for the best antique stores in Huntsville, Alabama.
