Downtown Wilmington is a favorite destination for avid antique fans, and Michael Moore Antiques is a gem in a long line of downtown stores that are bursting with vintage treasures. Found within a simple, one-story brick building along Castle Street – the premier destination in the downtown area for antique hunters – the shop is distinguished for its crowded windows and an interior that’s lined with vintage items of every variety.
The store is easy to spot, as the exterior is usually cluttered with unique pieces of outdoor furniture and décor. The inside is just as enticing, as this “antique emporium” is crowded with a world of goods that can cater to veritably any taste. Shoppers will find antique display cases and shelves that are lined with lamps, porcelain, figurines, glassware, books, artwork, and cool coastal bottles, as well as polished furnishings in every nook and cranny. The racks of vintage attire and hats are definitely worth a look, as is the collection of unique pieces of jewelry and coastal-themed prints, paintings, and other pieces of décor. With everything under the sun, from chandeliers to fedoras, Michael Moore Antiques is a catch-all for a world of Cape Fear antiques in one single and enticing destination.
