If you are the kind of person who gets excited about vintage goods and antiques, you have probably visited some of the famous flea markets north of New York City - places like the huge outdoor Brimfield Antique Show or the 600-vendor Stormville Flea Market.
Though less frequented than other destinations in New York or Connecticut, the tiny town of Millerton has become the Empire State's go-to place for those looking to redecorate their homes or spruce up their workplaces. Inspiration is everywhere, and there are plenty of shops to choose from.
In Millerton, design-minded shoppers and vintage enthusiasts will find the best of both worlds: high-end shops with expertly curated selections, and plenty of stores where the shopping experience is more like rummaging through your quirky aunt's basement.
One of the hallmarks of the Millerton Antique District is the Millerton Antiques Center. Located roughly in the middle of Main Street, it has been a mainstay of the area for over two decades. Making the most of the available space, more than 30 dealers can be found behind the front doors of the Millerton Antiques Center. And the overall collection in this shop is fantastically eclectic: you don't really know what you're going to find, but you know it's going to be interesting. Like many of the shops in the area, it is open seven days a week.
The Millerton Antique District has something for every taste. Hunter Bee has quirky artwork next to mid-century design classics, and random oddities dot the shelves in between. Prices range nicely in this store and throughout the antique district in general. So even if you're on a budget, you might be able to find something without missing out on the best. Hunter Bee is a great stop for those looking for a unique talking piece for their home.
The shops in the Millerton Antique District take great pride in their collections and are constantly curating new items for shoppers. Some stores feature dealers and artists from all over New York State, with pop-up booths coming and going. All in all, the area does a good job of keeping up with trends and offering the best antiques and vintage items available.
