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!
