Best Of 2015: Antique Store

Looking for a Star Wars figure from the 1980s? How about a stock certificate from before the Revolutionary War? Both, and thousands of other unusual items, can be found at American Classics Marketplace. Owner Gary Brookshire says the selection in his 65,000-square-foot store is so varied and surprising that several theater directors shop for stage props here. But what sets his place apart from others, he says, is an "awesome" staff of about 20 people who collectively bring hundreds of years' experience with antiques. Note: 10 of them work the floor at any given time, so you shouldn't need to hunt someone down for help. — Pam Zubeck
