The Shops of The Antique Mile: Porch & Twig

Porch & Twig
7201 4th St NW

Combine a store with creative styling, funky retro finds, an urban vibe with a green thumb, and you get Porch & Twig.  It’s trendy vintage at its finest!

The store is a vintage garage, which was creatively converted into an industrial and far- style space with lots of indoor plants and greenery.  It also has a colorful backyard with lots of rusty garden things. 

Wood crates and old metal candle sticks sit along industrial  metal letters, vintage oil cans and a functioning bath tub and water trough ponds. It’s so charming and earthy all at the same time.

Porch & Twig specializes in vintage and up-cycled pieces of furniture and accessories with new and trendy uses.   Genres include industrial, cottage, farm, mid-century, rustic, outdoor and so much more. All merchandise is hand-selected and displayed with a designer's eye.

Stop and visit Porch & Twig. You just might find your eyes widen with delight, your face light up with a smile, and your heart sing a little song!

Welcome to The Village

The Antique "Mile" stretches along 4th St., between Alameda and Guadalupe Trail, falling mostly within The Village of Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, officially incorporated in 1958. The Village is located in the heart of the North Valley, just a few miles from downtown Albuquerque, the urban to our rural. Our shops are nestled amongst the cottonwoods and elms growing proud and tall between the scattered farms and homesteads of the village, bounded to the West by the Rio Grande River and to the East by the majestic Sandia Mountain range, giving us the cozy feel of small town living. Faces in the Village are friendly and familiar and life moves at a bit slower pace, as we enjoy a step away from the hectic urban life of the "big city." The Village is the destination for easy Sunday mornings - with a number of good local haunts for breakfast and brunch, a stroll along the Rio Grande, and some slow-paced shopping, where customers are not just customers, but friends. We are proud to be a part of this unique North Valley community and even those of us not "officially" in the Village claim it as our own.

Come take a visit to the Village with a leisurely drive down 4th Street and see why The Antique "Mile" is lucky to call Los Ranchos de Albuquerque home.
