494Buchanan is listed as one of the “Top Ten Best Antiquing Towns in the U.S.” by Fodor’s Travel…/p…/10-best-antiquing-towns-in-the-us . Antiques have been an integral part of the Town of Buchanan’s revitalization efforts for more than twenty years.  Locally  owned shops are filled to the brim with unique finds. Merchants fill their shops with treasures from the Shenandoah Valley, the Roanoke Valley and beyond.

Because the Town’s Main Street coincides with US Route 11, it is part of an “Antique Alley” which travels through the Shenandoah and Roanoke Valleys.

Buchanan’s antique shops invite you to make a weekend of it, travel through the 2006-05-01 16.46.48Shenandoah Valley looking for antiques, spend the night in Buchanan, then continue your search traveling through the Roanoke Valley! There are many similar small towns and cities along US Route 11 where you will find antiques and collectibles including Strasburg, Weyers Cave, Mt. Crawford, Mt. Jackson, Woodstock, Edinburg, Stuarts Draft,  New Market, Verona, Staunton, Lexington, Roanoke, Christiansburg, Radford, Pulaski, Fort Chiswell, Wytheville and Bristol.

Buchanan is known for its antiques from furniture to smalls at great prices. Our prices are so reasonable that we find antique dealers scour Buchanan’s shops for great buys to resell at their shops.

As an important partner in the town’s ongoing revitalization activities, antique shops provide “incubator business” opportunities for local vendors to establish themselves and grow while contributing to the overall economic growth of our community. Call ahead, or, check websites to your favorite shops to verify hours of operation.
