Discover a treasure trove of vintage shops near me in New England. Unearth one-of-a-kind decor pieces and experience the thrill of thrifting.

Vintage shops, also known as thrift stores or second-hand stores, are treasure troves of unique and nostalgic fashion pieces, accessories, home decor, and collectibles. These shops specialize in selling pre-owned items that are typically at least 20 years old, giving them a distinct vintage charm. One of the main attractions of vintage shops is the opportunity to find one-of-a-kind fashion pieces that cannot be found in mainstream stores.

Vermont Vintage Shops Near Me

Vermont Vintage Market Days / Rutland, Vermont

I love attending the Vermont Vintage Market Days twice a year in April and October. It’s filled with 60+ vintage and antique decor vendors from all over New England. I never miss it!! There’s a small entrance fee, but well worth it! The parking is convenient, and the crowds are manageable.

The Vintage Soul / Manchester, Vermont

This vintage shop near me is relatively new to the area and packs quite a punch! You’ll find an assortment of vintage and thrifty finds, vintage clothing, and some newer items, too! An old-fashioned candy counter and Vermont delectables fill an entire row. Grab a Vermont hat and t-shirt as a souvenir. And wait until you see the new sandwich deli they are currently installing.

You will also find me “Dabbling and Decorating,” displaying and reselling my vintage wares and finds in the window here, too!

Stone House Antique Center / Chester, Vermont

This is a large one-floor antique center with 100+ different vendors. Prices are reasonable, and it’s definitely worth a stop if you are in this area. Just down the road on the right, stop by The Heritage Deli and enjoy their fantastic sandwiches.

The Vermont Country Store / Rockingham, Vermont / Beyond Retro

The Vermont Country store is just a few miles from the Stone House Antique Center on the right. It is also worth the stop for all things practical and hard to find from days gone by. Vermont Country Store also has an online store. And you will not want to miss out on all their cheese samplings!

Covered Bridge Antiques / Bennington, Vermont

This is the cutest vintage shop near me in the Bennington area, in my opinion. It has quality antiques, unique gifts, vintage clothing, and a fun, eclectic shopping experience. Take a trip through the Covered Bridge and discover a world of treasures…

The Big Red Barn / Westminster, Vermont

This is definitely bargain barn vintage shopping near me. Filled to the brim with vintage and thrifty collectibles. It’s not clean and tidy, but I found some of my favorite finds at this Big Red Barn. Open seven days a week, it’s worth stopping by, just outside Bellows Falls off I91,7804 US Route 5 Westminster, VT. (No website or social media available.) See the Best Barn Finds in a Big Red Barn on a Sunday Foliage Drive post for more details.

Southern Maine Vintage Shops Near Me

I have mapped out the vintage shops near me below so that you can shop as if I were going for a day of antiquing myself, starting first in Kittery, Maine, and then moving north.

Southern coastal Maine is extremely busy with tourism over the summer months. I highly recommend shopping these favorites from September to May to avoid the out-of-state crowds and increased prices.

The Fabulous Find / Kittery, Maine

The Fabulous Find offers the highest-quality goods at the best prices. It’s also a fabulous vintage clothing store; if you ever find yourself in this area, don’t miss this second-hand shop! It’s my go-to place whenever I am in town.

There is so much to see in this amazing four-story barn filled with antique vendors from all over. The prices are reasonable, and if you can’t find what you are looking for here, mosey up the road and enjoy all the shops on Route 1, coined “Antique Alley” that I’ve listed below.

The Shops At Cape Neddick / Cape Neddick, Maine

I adore this little vintage shop near me, which combines vintage vendors, painting and DIY, clothing, and coastal collectibles. It’s definitely worth a stop by!

Bo-Mar Hall Antiques & Collectibles / Wells, Maine

Next stop heading north on Route 1: This cute antique mall is on the left-hand side, a couple of miles up from Ogunquit in Wells, Maine. This large antique and collectible center has plenty of parking, and when the weather is nice, they will also have a mini flea market going on outside!

Breakaway Designs and Antiques / Wells, Maine

This is one of my favorite vintage shops near me, too, when I’m looking for unique 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 store near me. It’s a new store in a very large building, and I expect big things from this shop as it grows. It’s filled with antiques, vintage finds, a large children’s section, vintage 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, the last of my favorite vintage shops near me here in southern coastal Maine. The Americana has two floors filled with antiques and vintage furniture. The second floor offers coastal cottage decor. These folks are super nice and helpful!

Habitat for Humanity York County / Kennebunk, Maine

This is the largest Habitat for Humanity I have ever been to. It’s a large warehouse filled with all kinds of furniture, old and new. Many volunteers and workers are also on duty to help move items into your car. It’s a must if you are in this area. Be sure to check out their hours before visiting!

Topiaries at Snug Harbor Farm

While visiting Kennebunk, you may also want to stop at the well-known Snug Harbor Farm; see more in the post, Go Green – A Visit to Snug Harbor Farm, Maine.

Cabot Mill Antiques / Brunswick, Maine

I discovered this amazing antique center this summer while visiting a friend in Down East Maine. It is in an old brick mill just down the road from Bowdoin College. The antique selections are top-notch, and prices are varied. Cabot Mill Antiques is not to be missed! See more in the posts Antiquing Down East, A Day’s Jaunt and Vintage Shopping, A Church Collection Basket, and Wild Oats.

New Hampshire Vintage Shops Near Me

Nest Portsmouth / Portsmouth, NH

I love this adorable vintage shop near me in Portsmouth, owned by a friend of a friend, a short 7-mile jaunt from the Maine border, and I know you will, too! It’s so whimsical and filled with beautiful collectibles, vintage clothing, 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!

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.

  1. Hi Ann – My name is Anna. I am also an antiques dealer, a blogger, and I work full time (because I have to pay the bills). I lived in Maine for 7 years and go back every 6 months to visit family. I was touched to see that we shop at many of the same places. This was such a good post with so many good resources. By the way, when I went to Maine in November it looked like Hutchins Antiques was closed. Hopefully not. It would be sad to see it closed. Wishing you a Merry Christmas.

    1. Awww welcome and I love that you’re from Maine. Hutchins Antiques is one of my favorites but it burned down this summer. It was awful. We were there when it did. I haven’t heard whether they will rebuild or not. I know it was a big family business. Super sad.

  2. You are surrounded by so many beautiful shops. NJ has nothing. I miss traveling to Newport, RI. They had so many great shops around the area

    1. We are fortunate as I miss them when in Vermont😉

    1. I hope you get to make the trip soon. You are so welcome💙

  3. I haven’t been to the Nest in Portsmouth…I found it by accident when we were detoured heading to get my haircut.

    1. Oh Andrea is great Jennifer. I met her through my friend Lisa who you also met🙌🏻

  4. Enjoyed your tour! I also love the two antique/vintage shops in Arundel on Rte 1; there is a goodsized flea market there in the summertime, too! I’d love to get to VT again; Shelburne Village is one of my favorite places!

    1. I heard about that flea market, I need to try it out this summer for sure! I hope you make it to Vermont soon. It’s such a beautiful state!

  5. This post is very welcome and fun! The photos are beautiful and the descriptions are enticing! Thank you so much for sharing this treasure trove of shops.

    1. Thank you so much Kristine. I appreciate you stopping by today!

  6. Absolutely LOVE both of your gorgeous homes!

  7. Thank you for posting this! Shelley from CalypsointheCountry told me to come meet you here and read this article!
    I am going to be antiquing in the Manchester VT area at the end of the month and was looking for suggestions within
    a 50 mile radius. If you think of any other towns to visit in that area, please let me know!
    Thanks so much —

    1. Thanks for stopping in Alison! Yes the Vintage Soul in downtown Manchester is fantastic and new. I’ll be adding it to my list here! Hi to Shelley for me! I hope you find some great goodies!
