I adore places like this. The Carlsbad Village Art & Antique Mall? Not so much. It's hot in there. And the further back you go, it feels like the booths don't offer so much. But the staff is kind and courteous. It seems a bit...More

Sometimes you can find something good here. Just have to hunt. A bunch of antique's are really over priced. Just know what you are looking for and do your homework. Not a place to take small children. So much to break so leave kids with...More

This reminded me of how we shop and barters back home, nice place but no vendors to speak to? And very hot and uncomfortable insides no air conditions for an upscale area of shoppings district? The ladies seem to be nice to the peoples they...More

I'm not much of a shopper, especially when traveling, but I do like to take something back with me as a trip reminder. This is so much more satisfying than a souvenir shop. For one, it's mostly local fare. Second, it may carry future value...More

Our trips to Carlsbad would not be complete without visiting this large collection of vintage memorabilia. It seems to us that vendors rent space and the clerks handle transactions on their behalf. As we wandered around, we could see evidence of how the different vendors...More
