Coastal Connecticut

North along the Connecticut coast from New York, or south from Rhode Island, is antique central. One of the best things about this area is that you’re never far away from the coastline. And this feeling of water, water everywhere is made even better by the charming towns from where the Connecticut river meets the Long Island Sound. Also here is Stonington, the only town on the coast with an active fishing fleet. You can find dealers in New Canaan, Darien, Ridgefield, Westport and Greenwich. Darien and Greenwich have more upscale items and is an excellent place to find vintage furniture. New Haven has approximately 30 dealers, as well some wonderful museums. East of New Haven, Westbrook, Old Saybrook, Old Lyme, Essex, East Haddam, and Deep River are also great towns for antiquing. There are also big antique malls in New Haven and New London.

Connecticut has a very full antique show schedule. Some of the highlights include Old Greenwich’s antique events, which attracts more than 60 dealers and runs in early February and mid-March. Darien has a weekend show in late February and an outdoor/indoor show in mid-September. And Westport has a weekend show with 53 dealers in mid-April. Noteworthy shows are also held in Wilton, Farmington, and Hartford. Other diversions along Connecticut’s Coast include museums, art museums, antique marketplaces, outdoor activities, performing arts festivals, quaint Inns and culinary delights. As you will soon discover, there is no shortage of antiques, or interesting things to do in this area.
