Have you been trying to find a one-of-a-kind piece of furniture for your Springs Apartment home? Or maybe you are looking for a unique gift that doesn’t necessarily have to be “new”? Head to one of Tulsa’s antique stores or flea markets and enjoy the shopping adventure of browsing through vintage, retro and antique items in search of that perfect treasure.
I-44 Antique and Collectibles Mall
5111 Peoria Avenue
This Tulsa mall is easy to get to from your new apartment on Mingo Road. It includes an extensive inventory from 50 antique dealers. Many people who have shopped at this mall say the people are very friendly and it resembles a museum of quality goods. So if you're looking for collectibles, this just might be just the place to go. Vintage jewelry and handbags, toys, dolls, games, furniture, rugs, art, sporting goods and more are available from the many vendors at this site. The mall is bigger than it looks on the outside, so you could definitely plan to spend a couple of hours just looking around. Hours are Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday noon to 5 p.m.
Swick's Flea Market
5802 W. 51st St.

Persimmon Hollow Village
6927 S. 115th E. Avenue
Just 1.7 miles from home, Persimmon Hollow Village is close to your brand new apartment at Springs at Woodlands South. It sits on 3 acres of land and is a replica of an old west town. Step back in time as you visit “Main Street” and see what life was like back in the 1880s. You'll find antiques, carved glass, wood furniture, handmade crafts, vintage jewelry, locally-made jellies and jams, and more in 18 specialty shops along with flea market and consignment shop. If you always wanted to visit the old west, this is your chance. There is a children's playground and dog park across the bridge from Main Street. Hours are Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
