The website HouseBeautiful.com rattled off what it considers the best towns in every state for antique shopping, and in Maine, anointed Wiscasset.
Here’s what HouseBeautiful wrote about the “Prettiest village in Maine”:
“Whether you’d like to sleep where you shop at The Marston House (a B&B/antique store) or power through a day amidst 16,000 square feet of antiques at Wiscasset Village Antiques, this town proves there’s more to Maine than lobster.”
Of course, those aren’t the only places to find vintage items in town, which the Wiscasset Antiques Center calls “Maine’s Antiques Capital.”
The shopper review site Yelp lists at least 10 such stores and dealers in Wiscasset, so there’s plenty to paw through there. Last year, Fodor’s Travel named it one of the top 10 antiquing destinations in the entire country.
That said, there are other towns in Maine that boast a strong selection of antiques stores. Do you shop for antiques? Where are your favorite places to go?
