Whether you’re looking for cultivated furniture or a one-of-a-kind gift for that special someone in your life, West Columbia has the perfect "something" to take home from its many antique shops.

Peruse the 11,000 square feet of space at 763 Antiques Mall for an array of collectibles and antiques. It’s stocked with items like books, crystal, Depression glass, jewelry, sterling and silver plates, art glass, oils and prints, and pottery. Have a specific vintage item in mind? Ask the knowledgeable staff to assist you in finding what you need. The mall is open seven days a week with very accommodating hours of operation.

Art and design have been a part of Elaine Lewis' life for as long as she can remember, prompting her to open the State Street Trading Company on State and Meeting streets in West Columbia. The shop is full of paintings, ceramics, quilts, metalwork and jewelry created by local artisans, with new work being showcased regularly. Look for the handmade deer hide pieces featuring quilted squares and lacing, solid wood antique furniture, original paintings and eye-catching jewelry.

Inventory changes daily at The Elephant Trunk. What waits for you? From an 1800s spinning wheel to a vintage pie safe, The Elephant Trunk features a wide array of furniture and antiques. Find many styles from different time periods. Explore the quaint, 1,000-square-foot building at 2931 Platt Springs Road.

A personalized gift says it best. Located in the historic Brookland district of West Columbia is Cherry’s Delight. The restored 1914 bungalow features color-themed rooms, each with a different focus on entertaining. The Maple Room, Mango Tango Room, Palmetto Room and Extreme Red Room offer everything you need for entertaining and decorating a beautiful home. With in-house design technology, walk out with a customized gift the same day.
