Antique stores aren't usually particularly trend-conscious. They're more the kind of place your great aunt might browse to fill out her china collection or pick up an 18th-century credenza. But the Curiosity Shop breaks the mold with a thoughtfully curated selection of on-trend vintage goods. Owner Courtney Laine started out selling on Etsy, scouring junk shops, estate sales, and flea markets across the East Coast for sought-after antiques like blue Bell jars, old silver, cake stands, and soda crates. Her Queen Street shop boasts all of those things plus a selection of for-rent items perfect for styling weddings and other events. The shop's hours are still a little irregular, so call before stopping in.
