  • Antiquing in Virginia

    by Casey | Posted on August 26th, 2013

    Looking for something old, sweet and pretty? Antique and trash-to-treasure shops are havens for DIYers and collectors alike.

    Northern Virginia

    ManassasSouthern Living issued The Ultimate Antiquing Tour in their November 2011 edition and those gems are still shining brightly in Virginia. Writer Paula Disbrowe plotted her way from Maryland into Virginia, even including suggested places to eat.

    Highlights:

    Shenandoah Valley

    Cabin Creekwood in Lyndhurst offers local shopping suggestions to their guests just as any good cabin owner would. I came across their blog and an entry entitled Antiquing in Virginia: 4 Shops Worth Visiting caught my attention. Who knows best? Locals know best. If you’re in the Staunton area, check out Valley of Virginia Antiques in Fairfield, the Stuarts Draft Antique Mall, The Factory Antique Mall in Verona, or Memory Makers in downtown Staunton.

    Coastal Virginia

    Take your hunt for antiques to the Eastern Shore of Virginia. That’s just what writer Krys Stefansky of The Virginian-Pilot did in her article Road Trip: Find Antique Heaven on the Eastern Shore. Her recommended stops include Blue Crow Antique Mall in Keller, Exmore’s Antique Emporium, and two dining destinations as well: Big’s Place – The Gaskill Family Restaurant in Painter and Yellow Duck Bakery Cafe in Exmore. Read her article to see why she ends it, “We’re coming back.”
