Antique shopping can give you a real sense of the history of any vacation spot. This is especially true in and around Lancaster, where vintage concepts are even more charming and abundant than in other tourist destinations. Add these antique destinations to your shopping itinerary:
Burning Bridges Antiques Market. Take a short drive to nearby Columbia to explore a vast antique collection housed in what used to be a hardware store. Over 200 vendors and three floors of treasures are waiting to be explored. Jewelry and fine art are well-represented here — and the prices are reasonable, given the quality of these items.
Space. This isn't your typical antique store; it's dedicated to midcentury modern. Stylish retro products abound, including vintage furniture, kitchenware, and decor. Many of these items are incredibly difficult to find at other antique stores, so Space is a must-visit if you're passionate about midcentury style.
Antique Village of Strasburg. Whimsical inside and out, this charming shop offers an eclectic mix of products that can appeal to any antique enthusiast imaginable. There are multiple buildings to sort through, so take your time and relax in this unique environment. You may emerge with fine jewelry, kitschy decor, books, or even tools.
Country Loft Antiques. Another Strasburg favorite, this multi-dealer location has plenty of compelling booths, each with its own unique vibe. Set aside some time to check every nook and cranny; you never know what you might find!
