Finding one-of-a-kind items for gifts or decor can be challenging. That is until you travel along
U.S. Hwy. 287 to Antique Row in Fort Collins. These shops contain it all: furniture, collectibles, upcycled pieces, artisan crafts, art, etc. 

The best part? It ranges from shabby chic to macabre and everything in between. 

On NOCO Style Editor Angie Grenz’s last visit, she walked away with two great finds from A&J Antique Mall (, her personal favorite in the string of stores and second place winner in 2021’s NOCO Style Best Of for antique stores): an original oil painting signed by the artist with tags from the original gallery and a pure white animal pelt. Both are now on display in her living room. In a world of mass produced and cheap goods, it is refreshing to find something unique.
