I know. I'm an interior designer who scours local antique stores seeking particular fine antique "finds" for clients. I just purchased a fabulous antique lamp from Briarwood plus a pair of antique chairs that I had been searching for the past several weeks. Then a colleauge mentioned Briarwood. Wow. Their value are absolutely amazing on quality antique furniture. The shabby chic trend ended a year ago and many clients have begun requesting traditional period antiques. The "finds" in this shop are far better than any other antique shops I've scoured within the entire Bay Area. Who knew? I'll definetly be returning to this shop -- besides their selection of very affordable antique furniture, they have a huge selection of everything else: fine period lighting, artwork, glassware, pottery, jewelry, books/magazines, post-cards, toys/dolls, kitchenware, etc. - to unusual, hard to locate items. I was very impressed by this store's selection and the friendliness of the staff there. This store was very organized with lots of light. They even host free hot coffee plus free parking on street (as well as off-street rear parking lot I'm told). I will be returning soon! Thanks Briarwood!

Wow...this shop is wonderful! I found it last year after lunching nearby with a friend. We planned on a quick "peruse" and wound up spending 3 hours inside! This store is deceptively LARGE once inside and everything is arranged so nicely. We didn't expect to find such a huge variety; we found everything from fine antique furniture to original artwork, glassware, pottery, china, artglass, jewelry, lighting, hardware, radios - you name it. We were very impressed with the wonderful display of antique lighting and hardware in the back 1/2 of this store. I personally hadn't planned on purchasing anything but the prices were so good I couldn't pass it up. I ended up with a piece of pottery and a pair of accent chairs I fell in love with...I'd seen a similar pair in Los Gatos a while back but they were ridiculously expensive. I purchased mine for 1/3 of the price!

The staff in here were really nice and helpful, knowledgeable - helped us quickly located items of interest in different dealer spaces. The amount of inventory is amazing and so well organized and clean! We helped ourselves to coffee and enjoyed the retro music too. We could have easily spent the entire afternoon here; we had to force ourselves to leave, seriously. I recommend this shop to anyone looking for a great deal on fine antiques or collectibles. They have it all. This has to be one of the best kept secrets in the Bay Area for selection and value. Worth the trip!

BTW -- we learned this shop has plenty of free parking around back if you don't want to park on San Carlos Street.
