I'm a long time vintage-head and my favorite place in St. Louis for retro mid-century stuff is Re-Designz in the Chesterfield Mall. Last week I picked up a couple of Bertoia chairs, which were in great shape and very cheap. They have a lot of furniture--chairs and tables--as well as clothing, home decor and jewelry, all at really fair prices. It's a big store and everywhere I looked I saw another fantastic treasure! I just wanted to share this with fellow retro freaks. Their website is re-designz.net.
Best Almost Antique Store St. Louis 2010 - The Future Antiques
Call it retro, call it vintage, just don't call it old, because the wares at the Future Antiques, or TFA, are anything but outdated. You could easily lose yourself in room after room of furniture, clothes and decorations as classically American as June Cleaver's pearls. After sixteen years of business, TFA has perfected the art of finding the diamonds in the rough of estate-buyout sales. The folks here specialize in mid-century items that are clearly chosen for their appeal to this century's eye and aesthetic; everything can be easily integrated into your modern-day life. What TFA sells is in great condition but still has the personality and true vintage style that can't be found in plastic re-creations. And thanks to the store's chic displays, Grandma's kitchen gadgets and Great-Aunt Myrtle's hats and dresses never looked so fabulous.
