Are you on the North or South Shore or are you looking for Boston proper? I know plenty on north and south but only one near the city.

In Cambridge there's the Cambridge Antique Market on the Monsignor Obrien Hwy
right at the Lechmere T Stop.  Its huge and full of booths with all sorts of stuff.

Charles Street in Boston between Beacon and Cambridge Sts. has tons of places, but can be pricey.

And, if you are up for the trip, the Brimfield fair is 3 times a year and well worth the drive.  http://www.brimfield.com

if you're looking for antique shops in boston, there's one called yesteryear in jamaica plain. it's on south street and within walking distance of the forest hills train station.

I haven't been to any of these places in a year, so no telling if they're still there, but:

There's an antique mall near the Cambridge/Somerville border on (I think) Cambridge St. near Inman Square. In Inman Square itself there's a neat little vintage clothing shop. 

And there are two places that sell antiques on the 104 bus route in Malden on Ferry St.  One of them looks like a tiny corner shop full of washers and dryers at first, but they have a whole huge basement full of used furniture and the upstairs sells an odd assortment of antiques. They keep strange hours, though.   The other one was a larger antique mall-- two floors, many many dealers, and I'm pretty sure they do auctions as well.

there's another little junky place on brighton ave in allston, kind of near urban renewals. don't remember what it's called, but from the outside it looks like a costume jewelry and tchotchke shop, but they have a basement full of old paintings and furniture that's pretty neat.
