About the Alabama Antique Trail

The Alabama Antique Trail lists over 100 different antique shops around the state and it’s always being updated. If you’re on the hunt for a one-of-a-kind piece, they do all the work for you.

The site is complete with maps, photos, store info and more. There are even links that lead straight to shops’ Facebook and Instagram accounts. 

No shop is alike. Some are in cottages, bungalows, antebellum homes or even made out of recycled wood. Let’s take a look at some of the shops you can find on the antique trail in and around Birmingham.
