Antiquing in New Hampshire
To many collectors of antiques, it seems that the whole cult began in the state of New Hampshire. For more than 150 years, devotees of the history of American culture have been heading to the Granite State to load their wagons with treasured artifacts of times past. The notion of the little shop tucked away on a country lane, with mountains in the distance and the coffee pot on the wood stove, triggers the heart of the collector to hit the road.
Although the artifacts have become scarcer, the quest continues, and the state prides itself on the many active antiques dealers who make their homes here. Dealers who sell from a private barn or home in the rural countryside still exist, side-by-side with the growing number of group shops, where dealers combine in a large space and set up room settings and showcases. The many group shops in New Hampshire serve to make lots of good antiques available with a minimum of miles to cover.
Whatever your particular passion, New Hampshire is a great place to antique, and NHADA is the heart of the antiques trade in New Hampshire.
