Charmingest Antique District
From Olde Towne Antiques to Bad Girls Antiques, Martinez is the closest and most charming place to go digging through shelves of costume jewelry, stained-glass lamps, and World War II tank parts. There are a dozen shops here on Main Street, and they've all settled into their own respective niche markets. You'll find unique and original items around every corner and behind every stack of magazines, whether you're searching for the perfect end table or just checking in for a gift for your mother. With so many different shoppes to choose from, and because getting there does not involve the madness of the Richmond Bridge, Martinez makes for a better bric-a-brac base-camp than any of those quaint little North Bay towns.
