Sweet Lorain Antiques
Formerly named Suite Lorain, this antiques shop sells items on behalf of many owners. Sweet Lorain is highly organized compared to usual shops' hodge podge, making it easy for buyers to see everything that is available. The prices can be on the high side but if it's vintage that you want, this is the place to go.
