Downtown Hopkins

From Anoka to Stillwater to Red Wing, our region is not wanting for antiques hubs. But for those looking to dig for treasure a little closer to home, the surprisingly charming downtown Hopkins has its own historic Mainstreet, which has also bred a collection of antiques shops. And with more than 200 dealers gathered in a handful of roomy storefronts, the Hopkins Antique Shops Association has organized events like the spring Hopkins Antique Days and an autumn Hopkins Antique Stroll, hoping to draw shoppers to the area. But no need to wait for a big event to visit. With collections that lean toward home and kitchen wares, toys, jewelry, kitsch, and just a bit of furniture, there's always plenty to browse, and the friendly shopkeepers are always ready with a hot pot of coffee, plate of cookies, and a smile ... and, of course, an eagerness to help pile your arms full of goodies, and a cheery wave as you haul it all out to your car.
