Lucky Vintage has a mix of new and vintage items.

Boulevard Mercantile We don't know where the folks at Boulevard Mercantile find their stuff, but we're sure glad they're always on the hunt for those industrial-chic lockers and dry goods bins, schoolhouse chairs, vintage cameras, galvanized steel buckets, rustic wooden bins and shabby-chic Adirondack chairs we love.  1905 N. Monroe St., Spokane, Wash. • 327-7547

Chosen Vintage  You'd never guess that the tiny Chosen Vintage storefront in downtown Spokane has nearly 6,000 square feet of gems hidden behind it. Step inside and you'll find a 12-vendor co-op stocking vintage light fixtures, suitcases, theater seats, rugs and mirrors of all kinds.  7 W. Main Ave., Spokane, Wash. • 456-2552

Fray Fray is part of a cluster of vintage home décor shops in Coeur d'Alene's midtown, but it definitely sets itself apart. The shop has a slightly more sophisticated style than the popular shabby-chic spots, leaning more toward pieces with sleeker retro silhouettes. But don't be mistaken — it's still full of creative upcyclings, including art and clothing.  811 N. Fourth St. , Coeur d'Alene, Idaho • 208-664-5311

Fresh Design Gallery and Vintage Rental This isn't just another place to buy chic vintage furniture and home décor (although they do have a great selection) — you can also rent vintage "props" for weddings and other events, or rent out their Gathering Room for your next meeting. They'll also be your stylist and florist.  116 N. Lefevre St., Medical Lake, Wash. • 991-7577

Him & Her Vintage Furniture The cheery yellow-and-red storefront of Him & Her Vintage Furniture just makes sense in the South Perry neighborhood with its eclectic assortment of ironic velvet paintings, antique school desks, mid-century formica tables and artfully painted upcycled furniture. 1110 S. Perry St., Spokane, Wash. • 217-7294

Junk  Sometimes they go by "Rebel Junk," sometimes it's just "Junk," and at one point they were "Junk Salvation," but what's in a name? All we care about is that this place carries on their tradition of bringing hip vintage furnishings to Coeur d'Alene. Their farmhouse-meets-Pottery-Barn style is to die for, and they even sell their own line of chalk paint, so you can make your own shabby chic pieces.  811 N. 4th St., Coeur d'Alene, Idaho • 360-689-5622

Lucky Vintage and Pretty Things Lucky Vintage and Pretty Things has a mix of new and vintage items, and as promised, they're all very pretty. Find perfectly distressed shabby furniture, handmade feather earrings and crochet pillows, and vintage home décor from buying trips around the country.  1930 S. Inland Empire Way, Spokane, Wash. • 321-7230

My Favorite Things With more than 30 dealers filling 16,000 square feet of space, this vendor mall has something for everyone. The selection of antiques, tools, collectibles, books and furniture changes nearly every day. There's so much to see, they even offer free coffee, tea and cookies so you can browse for hours.  503 E. Seltice Way, Post Falls, Idaho • 208-773-4110

Paint in my Hair Paint in my Hair is like a day spa for furniture. Furniture goes in old and faded, and comes out restored and ready for a new life. This shop is great for picking up charming, upcycled vintage furniture without the hassle of painting it yourself. Or, if you'd rather try your hand at it, stop by for a workshop.  3036 N. Monroe St., Spokane, Wash. • 326-6999

Paris Antiques Let the folks at Paris Antiques do the yard sale hunting for you. They gather their impressive inventory from vintage shows and local estate sales in the area. Stock changes nearly every day, but you're always likely to find typewriters, clocks, vintage furniture and high-end upholstery fabrics by the yard at wholesale prices.  823 N. Fourth St. , Coeur d'Alene, Idaho • 208-659-3121 | 1815 N. Fourth St.

Rare and Retro Vintage There are treasures to be found at Rare and Retro, and thanks to careful staging and selective buying, you don't have to hunt through shelves of junk to find them here. This neighborhood store stages its shop with themed vignettes, to help you score mid-century modern starbursts for your living room or the shabby-chic dresser you need for your daughter's room.  27 W. Indiana Ave. , Spokane, Wash. • 863-5762

Tossed and Found Tossed and Found feels like walking into a time capsule of perfectly maintained treasures, with some great modern finds thrown in as well. Everything in store is either carefully restored or well-preserved, from classic antiques and mid-century modern furniture pieces in pristine condition to retro industrial items and signage.  2607 N. Monroe St., Spokane, Wash. • 325-2607

Two Women Vintage Goods  Be warned. Merchandise is so artfully staged at Two Women, you might find yourself buying a whole combination of goods instead of just purchasing just one pristine vintage Pendleton blanket or one antique birdcage. The two women behind this delightful shop are true collectors and this carefully curated shop is where Farm Chicks fans can shop all year long.  112 S. Cedar St , Spokane, Wash. • 624-4322

United Hillyard Antique Mall United Hillyard Antique Mall offers collectibles, vintage jewelry, antique art and furniture from nearly 20 vendors. But don't worry if you're intimidated by the two floors packed with items — the expert staff can help you locate exactly what you seek.  5016 N. Market St. , Spokane, Wash. • 483-2647
