Today I am very happy to be sharing a working list of my favorite second-hand shops from Vermont to Maine. A list that you have all been requesting and is well overdue! Be sure to bookmark and pin this post to your favorite Pinterest board for later reference! I plan to keep this list updated for your convenience.
VERMONT SECOND-HAND SHOPS
Vermont Vintage Market Days / Rutland, Vermont
I love attending the Vermont Vintage Market Days twice a year in both April and October. It’s filled with vintage and antique vendors from all over New England. I never miss it!! It’s a small fee to enter, however well worth the visit and parking are easy too! You’ll never find this market very crowded, which is a big bonus!!
The Vintage Soul / Manchester, Vermont
This second-hand shop is fairly new to the area and packs quite a punch! You’ll find an assortment of vintage and thrifty finds along with some newer items too! Prices are fair and they are in the stages of opening a second furniture shop next door too! I love how they have small table setups with different vintage themes!
Stone House Antique Center / Chester, Vermont
This is a large one-floor antique center with several different vendors. Prices are reasonable and it’s definitely worth a stop if you are in this area. Stop by the Heritage Deli too and enjoy their wonderful deli. Just down the road on the right.
The Vermont Country Store / Rockingham, Vermont
The Vermont Country store is just a few miles down from the Stone House Antique Center on the right. And is also worth the stop for all things practical and hard to find from days gone by. VCS also has an online store. And you will not want to miss out on all their cheese samplings!
The Cottage by the Brook / Westminster, Vermont
I never miss this second-hand shop! It is very whimsical with both its indoor and outdoor shopping. Lots of creative finds for your gardens, homes, backyards, and more. Prices are reasonable with a mix of all things vintage and new. Always a favorite stop!
SOUTHERN COASTAL MAINE SECOND-HAND SHOPS
I have mapped out the below for you as if I was going for a day of thrifting myself, starting with the York Antiques Gallery! Southern coastal Maine is extremely busy with tourism over the summer months. I highly recommend shopping these favorites from September – May to avoid the out-of-state crowds and increased prices. I’ve included the website or Facebook page for each second-hand shop for your convenience.
The York Antiques Gallery / York, Maine
There is so much to see in this amazing four-story barn filled with antiques and vendors from all over. The prices are reasonable and if you can’t find what you are looking for here, just mosey on the road up the road and enjoy all the shops on Route 1 coined “Antique Alley” that I’ve listed below. Simon Pearce out of Vermont also has a showroom here that you won’t want to miss!
The Shops At Cape Neddick / Cape Neddick, Maine
I adore this little shop, which is a combination of vintage vendors, painting and DIY, clothing, and coastal collectibles. It’s definitely worth a stop by!
Hutchins Antiques / Ogunquit, Maine
This is a deceivingly large one-floor shop in downtown Ogunquit, a few miles past the York Antiques Gallery on Route 1. Again, packed with vintage dealers. Parking is very accessible and prices are again reasonable. Being located in right downtown Ogunquit, it’s a great place to grab lunch while you are here and visit the other shops in this quaint coastal Maine town. After lunch keep heading north on Route 1.
Bo-Mar Hall Antiques & Collectibles / Wells, Maine
Next stop heading north on Route 1, you’ll find this cute antique mall on the left-hand side a couple of miles up from Ogunquit in Wells, Maine. This is another large antique and collectible center that has plenty of parking and is reasonably priced. When the weather is nice, they will have a mini flea market outside too!
Breakaway Designs and Antiques / Wells, Maine
This is one of my favorite second-hand shops to go to when I’m looking for ideas. The owner has such a creative style and the shop is adorable. She isn’t always open so be sure to call ahead! There’s a handful of other shops in this center you can visit as well.
Safe Haven Human Society Thrift Shop / Wells, Maine
This is so much more than a thrift shop. This is a new store in a very large building. I expect big things from this shop as they grow. It’s filled with antiques, vintage finds, a large children’s section, clothing, and more. Safe Haven is a consignment and thrift store and all proceeds benefit our furry friends.
The Americana Workshop / Kennebunk, Maine
Another couple miles up the road you will find this gem on the left and the last of my favorites here in southern coastal Maine. The Americana has two stories filled with antiques and vintage furniture. The second floor offers up coastal cottage decor and these folks are super nice and helpful!
The Fabulous Find / Kittery, Maine
The Fabulous Find offers the highest quality goods at THE best prices. Don’t miss it if you ever find yourself in this area! It’s my go-to place whenever I am in town.
PORTSMOUTH, NEW HAMPSHIRE SECOND-HAND SHOPS
Nest Portsmouth / Portsmouth, NH
I love this adorable shop owned by a friend of a friend in Portsmouth, NH, a short 7-mile jaunt from the Maine border and I know you will too! It’s so whimsical and filled with beautiful collectibles and refurbished pieces for your home. Just look at that outside setup! She also posts all her new items on her Facebook page with such personality and character!
NEW YORK SECOND-HAND SHOPS
Eagle Bridge Antique Center / Eagle Bridge, NY
This antique center located about 40 minutes from our home in Vermont is room after room filled to the brim with almost any vintage or thrifty find you can imagine. You can spend hours here, grab lunch across the street at a local family establishment, and return for hours more of thrifting. This is a not-to-be-missed place and so worth the visit. Just be sure to call ahead to confirm that this favorite antique and thrift shop is open on the day you want to visit.
