Spring Thrifting and Antiquing with the Gals!

Spring arrived early in New England this year and I’m not complaining one bit! The shops are loaded with inventory and the prices are great this time of the year! Hitting up the shops and flea markets in the spring is such a great time to go thrifting with the gals before all the summer tourists arrive here in New England.

Wood & Sons 1784 blue and white Dishes I passed on these beautiful blue and white dishes twice. A collection of 18 for $58. On my third trip back to the Stone House Antique Center in Chester, Vermont I could no longer resist them. I brought them with me to Maine and “Set the Table in Blue“.

While in Maine I dropped by the Americana Workshop in Kennebunk, Maine to pick up a dummy drawer to match this chippy green apothecary piece.

It is mud season here in Vermont in early April when many businesses close down for vacation before the spring and summer tourist seasons begin. Meaning, it can be challenging to find open antique and thrift shops too.

After a morning thrifting in Bennington, Vermont I was still craving for more, and the shop dealer I was at recommended the 20-minute drive over to New York to check out Eagle Bridge Antique Center.

A beautiful small antique braided rug was waiting for me here too, at only $45

It was so much fun thrifting and antiquing with the gals this spring. Be sure to join us every Wednesday over on Instagram where we share all our thrifting and antiquing adventures in our stories. Then every third Thursday of the month for a round-up here on the blog!
