It’s one of the region’s premier shopping days. No, it’s not the day after Thanksgiving. It’s the annual Spring open house on Antique Alley in West Monroe. Each Spring and Fall, the stores along Antique Alley throw open their doors on a Sunday afternoon.

Visitors stroll from store to store, visit with friends and shopkeepers, and browse antiques and collectibles in the dozens of shops dotting the alley. Each shop also provides refreshments to visitors, as a thank you for years of patronage.

Antique Alley represents one of the region’s largest commercial draws, and visitors come from hundreds of miles in search of that perfect new piece. The Spring open house is one of their largest annual draws, and this year was no exception. More than a thousand antiquers turned out for the event.
