i'm looking for vintage items like mason jars, milk glass, doilies, handkerchiefs...etc.

i'm in winston-salem, and i feel like i have no idea where good antique shops are.
any ideas out there? i'd really appreciate! i'm also willing to travel within reason :) thanks!

    Im not sure about actual stores in Winston, but I will say that I suggest going to local auctions, primarily estate auctions. It'll be MUCH cheaper than antique stores as those places will jack up prices like crazy.
    also, check Craigslist and yardsales and possibly goodwill.

    Michaels sells the mason jars.

    Good luck! :o)

    I know this might be a bit far for you, but after the State Fair the Flea Market has TONS of stuff like that.  Also, Suzannah's Antiques off of Durant Rd in Raleigh has lots of little treasures too, like the kind of antique places you see on HGTV.  If you're in the area, stop by downtown Durham on Foster Street, there is a place called the Scrap Exchange where people donate leftovers; leftover paint, picture frames, paper, you name it! Look them up on facebook, and then you can message them to see if they have what you need before driving out there.  Good luck!
