Best Vintage Jewelry Minneapolis 2011 - Mall of St. Paul

Mall of St. Paul

1817 Selby Ave.

St. Paul, MN 55104


Map & Details>>

Packed in with the vinyl records, roll-top desks, and '60s dinette sets, several local vintage jewelry dealers make the Mall of St. Paul their storefront base. There is a thrill of the hunt to prowling through the crowded store, searching for a cameo necklace or a pair of pearl earrings to perfect a Betty Draper getup. For those seeking seriously vintage baubles, some of the dealers offer pieces that date back as far as the 1800s. For the more casual collector, it's not hard to find a great chunky gold necklace for around $20, or add some major sparkle with a pair of rhinestone clip-ons. Be warned, it's tough not to wander through without picking up a set of vintage martini glasses or a classic Easy Bake Oven—the mall is like a museum we're allowed to bring home.

Presently, vintage Martini glasses cost around 18-40 dollars each depending on the style. Speaking of museums and malls, the National Mall of Washington DC is the only mall I've been to that's surrounded by museums. The first time I went there, there were a lot of tourists snapping pictures.
