For more than a decade Lincoln City has been the place to go on the Coast if you are interested in antiques and collectibles. Antique shops and used bookstores abound in Lincoln City. “Country Home Magazine” has named Lincoln City one of the great undiscovered places to antique in the United States. To celebrate the quality of “antiquing”, every February Lincoln City hosts Antique Week, a ten-day long event.
Antique Week features city-wide antique store sales at which you can save as much as 25% on your purchases. In addition, although each Antique Week is a bit different from the others, it generally offers city-wide sales, live performances, and workshops. An appraise-a-thon fair makes the event both entertaining and educational. It may seem curious that Lincoln City, one of the youngest communities on the Oregon coast, would be a good place to find antiques. But in the five historic neighborhoods which combined in the 1960s to make up the city – Delake, Oceanlake, Nelscott, Taft and Cutler City- you’ll find a rich history and a love of fine, old things. In this town, there is a ready market for interesting, historic items that many folks find they just can’t do without.
There are many places in Lincoln City where the antique hunter and collector can shop. In addition, there are several vintage bookstores which deal in those hard-to-find volumes you have always wanted to display on your bookshelf.
