River Market Antiques

Got a few hours to spare? Make a trip to River Market Antiques (115 W. Fifth St., Kansas City, Mo. 816-221-0220, This 30,000-square-foot market houses 175 booths and showcases — all in a constant state of flux. Although narrow, the creaky wooden stairs on the left side of the entrance lead to many undiscovered wonders. The basement, with its racks of vintage clothing, is filled with the nostalgic smells of your grandma’s closet. The upper floors have books, aged commercial signs, paintings, mint-condition comic books and handmade artwork such as a tree made from bottles.
