Leesburg's numerous antiques shops are within a block of the Market Street-King Street intersection and easy to find. Check the website of the Leesburg Antiques & Collectibles Dealers Association (www.leesburgantiques.com) for its member shops.

I seldom come here without browsing at Leesburg Corner Premium Outlets, 241 Fort Evans Rd.
