Small Town Antique Shopping

I came across an article In House Beautiful about the 50 Best Small Towns For Antiques. Click here for the full article.

I was delighted to see one of my favorite towns listed — Tipp City, Ohio. When we lived in Dayton I loved to go there. I still have a number of things from the shops there including an end table, mission style mirror, and a small hanging shelf. Tipp City is where I fell in love with vintage tablecloths!

I’ve been to some of the other towns and want to visit many more of them! Road trip?

    New Oxford, PA used to have a ton of shops and Emmitsburg, MD used the old shoe factory building to set up antique stalls. I need a road trip.

        Totally in! They’re only about an hour and a half up the road. (Oh, of the towns in the article, I’ve spent time and money in Wickford, RI,, and Portsmouth , NH.)

    My friend owns a small antique/consignment shop (not clothes). I did picked up some great cookie cutters at her shop. Also, when I was growing my Raggedy Ann collection, I was out all the time looking. I’ve also sold on eBay, and I will have to say I had some luck when shopping to resell. I found milk glass pieces for .25¢ each! I also found a beautiful carved wood bowl/platter piece. The design was beautiful. It was also only .25¢. I sort of wish I had kept that one for myself. I look forward to seeing more of your treasures, Sherry!

      Wow, Lisa! I didn’t know you were a bargain hunter/seller too! Milk glass for 25 cents is amazing!

    Hi Sherry,

    I recently found your Sarah Winston Garage Sale Mysteries & have thoroughly been engaged. I’ve enjoyed mysteries since I was a kid in Troy, Ohio. I grew up Air Force, my parent’s were at Wright Patterson. & then ended up US Navy where my husband rode submarines for 21 years & I ended up as the Admiral’s Ombudsmen. Will you be adding more books to the Sarah Winton series & if so when will more be released.

    I want to Thank You for the way you have portrayed military spouses. We are so many times the forgotten of the military life. I could certainly understand the the wife who’s ID card expired, they stripped my husband’s pay one time while he was at sea due to a clerical error & that one incident was why I became first a Command Ombudsman & then the Admiral’s Ombudsman.

    Like you, I enjoy antiquing & have spent many a happy hour in Tipp City going through the various shops. My husband & I met years ago at UD & had our first date at the original Marion’s Pizza, but worked for Vic Cassano when we were in college.

    Glad to have found your books!

      I’m so glad you like the Sarah books and what an amazing career you’ve had along with your husband. It’s been a pleasure to write about military spouses. It’s a tough life and a rewarding one too. Right now there are no plans for further Sarah books. Thanks so much for writing.
