A relative new-comer to the world of antique stores and all things flea market in Maine, Freeport Emporium is fairly easy to find, located just off of U.S. Route 1, in quite a large red building that just looks like an old barn to the uninitiated.
The slightly shabby exterior is housing three floors of antique and second hand items with more than 150 dealers waiting to engage shoppers with the knowledge and wares. Freeport Emporium is a little bit of a hidden gem, and well worth stopping by.
There is some order to the lay out of the Freeport Emporium, with the less-expensive merchandises and items that have been marked down for sale found on the bottom floor, and prices increasing the further up you venture in the shop.
Freeport Emporium opened its doors back in 2014, and has found since then its feet due to the passion of the owner, whose enthusiasm for antiques continues to grow. This antique store hosts a dynamic group of vendors, who are always ready to engage in a conversation with anyone interested to know more about a specific item.
There is a great selection of items for sale at the Freeport Emporium, including antique globes, toys, ceramic jugs, watering cans, items of furniture, pieces of artwork, lamps, woven baskets, textiles, glass ware and wall charts. And since the collection of goods on sale at Freeport Emporium is rather wide ranging, there is truly something for everyone. It is therefore easy to spend a couple of hours browsing around, and hard to leave without spending some cash.
Freeport Emporium is slightly set back off of the main road, so it is possible to drive right by without particularly noticing it. It is definitely worth marking its location though so as to not miss this great collection of treats!
Antiquing Tip Of The Day
Forget that dream of finding the rare collectible action figure or priceless 19th century end table at the flea market for ten bucks. Shoppers aren’t likely to find a real steal in a venue where most vendors are experts in their particular niche.
