From the refined exterior to the treasure-lined shelves, Old Elegance Antiques is a local Southport shop that certainly lives up to its name. Found in the heart of the downtown area along Moore Street, and located just a block or so away from the waterfront, this pristine antique store is a solid stop for shoppers who are looking for an arsenal of coastal décor, furnishings, and pieces to add a touch of vintage beauty to their own home.
The storefront is appealing, with light landscaping and a forest green sign and awning that sets the tone for an elevated shopping experience. Inside, visitors will find well-appointed rooms filled with antique treasures in attractive layouts, which makes it easy to find, and identify, pieces of interest. There’s a clear coastal influence throughout, as evident from the walls of tools, artworks, decoys, and fishing gear found throughout the space, although treasure hunters of all tastes will find plenty of furnishings, artworks, glassware, and other items to suit their style. With friendly owners and staff who are happy to lend a hand for specific goods, and plenty of room to move despite the modest-sized interior, Old Elegance Antiques is a well-organized stop for treasure hunters who love sea-worthy finds.
