Husband and wife team Melissa and Dave Sherrill opened Arrowhead Vintage & Handmade Goods in 2014 in a tiny studio space located in the Canton Arts District. Today, you can find them a few blocks away in a much larger venue, packed full of retro, vintage, mid-century furnishings and plenty more fun, weird things.

Birchwood Supply is more than just a home decor shop—it’s an experience. Step through the quaint, unassuming front door and take in an amalgamation of vintage scoreboards, well-worn couches, mirrors made from local tire forms, and much more. The shop is owned by Jason Horinger, a local designer who handmakes a lot of the goods, including some of the stunning custom tables and centerpieces, that you’ll find in the store.

923 Bank Street, Akron
Retro furniture is a must in Akron, and we are particularly fond of The Bomb Shelter, which sells vintage kitchen appliances, furniture, clothing, toys and TV sets. They opened in 2001 with 18,000+ square feet of warehouse space and a goal to give a second life to things from their childhoods. So take a moment to peruse goods from over a thousand different places all over the world—if not for the fantastic prices, but for the overwhelming nostalgia factor!

If the HGTV hit, Fixer Upper is your jam, Bridgewater Primitives is a glorious find. The homely Alliance storefront is brimming with well-loved old pieces and homemade goods that any rustic-decor enthusiast will adore. We have a particular fondness for their incredible selection of homespun candles (especially the lovely blueberry scent) that would be a fantastic addition to any decor.
