The Flour Mill at W. 621 Mallon is actually on the north side of the Spokane River across from downtown, next to the Arena. This is a charming old 100 + year-old brick build with specialty shops including a tobacco and pipe store, glass art store, pottery art store and kitchen store. You will also find Spokane's most popular restaurant, Clinkerdagger's, there along with a great sandwich shop and Ho Ho Terriyaki, a great place for a fast lunch. To get there, cross the Monroe Street Bridge from downtown and take a right at your 2nd light (Mallon), you will see it about 4 blocks down on your right. Or, you can walk through Riverfront Park, it sits on the north-central edge of the park.
There are antique stores in several areas. On North Monroe, from the moment just after you cross the bridge from downtown you will find several stores all the way north to the point that you approach the steep hill that takes you up to Garland. From about the 1300 block on East Sprague for about 3-5 blocks there are a couple stores. On North Market in Hillyard, just beyond Wellesley there are many antique stores to choose from. And finally, downtown on Main and Riverside there are a few stores between Division and Washington.

A few blocks south is the White Elephant (1730 N. Division), similar items as The General Store, just a smaller selection. They also have a bigger store in the Valley at 12614 E. Sprague.
