October 2019 VADA News
Autumn weather has come to Vermont and the foliage is beautiful this year. It’s a great time to visit Vermont and all the New England states.
We hear so much about shopping and buying local these days. It also applies to antiques! There are many antique centers and shops in which to shop “local” so that you are supporting a local business and business owners.
There is a group shop in Chester, Stone House Antique Center and in Essex Junction, Five Corners Antiques. Another group shop is in Quechee, the Antiques Collaborative and in Bellows Falls, the Windham Antique Center. Traveling up to Stowe you will find Sir Richards Antiques and Fine Art Center; in Johnson, Hogback Vintage; and in Barre, Last Time Around Antiques. Vintage Inspired Lifestyle Marketplace is in Burlington.
Stone Block Antiques is in Vergennes and Twin Oak Antiques is in Lunenburg. If you’re looking for quilts, Marie Miller Antique Quilts is in Dorset. In Woodstock, you will find Wigren-Barlow Arts and Antiques. Steven Thomas, Inc. Fine Arts and Antiques is in White River Junction.
If you’re looking for auctions, Merrill’s Auction Gallery is in Williston.
All these shops and more, as well as dealers belonging to The Vermont Antiques Dealers’ Association, are listed in the Vermont Antiques Dealers’ Association Directory brochure. The VADA website www.vermontantiquesdealers.com also lists all members of VADA, including contact information. If you’re looking for a shop or dealer in a particular area, the brochure is a great source of information.
The new directory brochures are now available at shops and shows. They can also be requested by emailing Brian Bittner at www.bittnerantiques.com
