I’ve always had an odd obsession with antique stores. I used to walk through quaint vintage shops and dream of how I would style a home of my own one day. As a new home-owner exploring antique shops is a guilty pleasure.
Currently, I have a very limited budget left to spend on home decor and furnishing. That isn’t stopping this girl from dreaming! Doing research and knowing what you want is just as valuable as going in with the intent to buy if you ask me. I enjoy window shopping by snapping images of pieces I like. Creating a look-book helps me to create a cohesive aesthetic that one day I can afford.
When I go into an antique store it’s because I’m looking for a specific piece. I even inform antique shops of specific items I’m looking for, leave them my contact information, and ask them to drop me a line if they find a piece. From Antique Staffordshire Spaniel Dogs statue pairs to two matching stationary desks for my office, my antique checklist is long but filled with items I specifically know will have a place and purpose in my home.
I’ve had the pleasure of visiting many antique stores filled with historical artifacts throughout New England. Some high-end shops are way-way-way-way over my budget; some are more wallet-friendly. In the end, they’ve all been worth the visit!
With antique stores all over our state, I’ve decided to give you guys my top picks along the Eastern Connecticut Shoreline.
Make sure to stop by the blog in the upcoming weeks to see Part 2 as we cover antique shops along Connecticut’s Western Shoreline.
