Merchant Square Antique Marketplace
You might be surprised to discover that one of the Valley's best antique malls is in Chandler. Merchant Square's giant space is immaculately organized, and it doesn't hurt that the store smells like chili (don't worry, it's not the merch -- Pittsburgh Willy's restaurant is connected to the store). The space is divided into six sections: fabulous finds, sweet rewards, small wonders, showcases, hidden treasures, and simple pleasures. But don't get too hung up on the designations. You'll find all sorts of goodies strewn throughout the 129 stalls. Merchant Square is the place to go for jewelry and accessories, as you'll find hand-beaded purses for $65 and pearl statement necklaces for just under $80. Clothing isn't the spot's forte, but dishware, signs, furniture, and nostalgia are in full supply.
