Antiquing In Connecticut

I Love Connecticut For Antique Shopping:
Collinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford


Crank up the car ...get is
a shopping trip you will love!

Shopping for antiques and collectibles in my home state of Connecticut is SUPER. What are you waiting for, there is no time like right now for antiquing!

The Nutmeg State Is Really "The Antique Nut State"

Let me know if you're coming and I'll give you some of my tips and secret haunts. My home state of Connecticut "The Nutmeg State" should be re-named "The Antique Nut State".
We have the best variety of shops and prices far better than all our neighboring states.

Looking For Kitsch, Retro, Vintage

Of course you know that I am mostly interested in vintage, retro, kitsch, cottage, kitchen-wares, textiles etc. so I am always making the rounds looking for my kind of "heaven" as defined by places that have funky finds.

I have traveled many states in search of some good deals and always feel that my own hunting grounds have some of the best places for antiques, collectibles and secret "junk spots".

You Will Love The Collinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford

My shop (Kitsch n Stuff) is in The Collinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford, Connecticut. This place is by far one of the largest Antique Malls still around . With over 20,000 square feet of shopping goodies and an in-house Retro cafe....this destination is really worth the ride.

Finding Everything at Collinsville Antiques Company

You will find anything and everything at The Collinsville Antiques Company including fabulous furniture and decorating items to a huge inventory of very fairly priced jewelry, glassware, ceramics, pottery, silver, vintage clothing, garden, kitchenwares, books, textiles, tin, toys, vanity, tablecloths, retro, tools, paintings, prints, maps, advertising, old signs, memorabilia, sporting collectibles, dolls, military, holiday, table top etc.

Hey...We're Family

What I like about The Collinsville Antiques Company is that even though it is very large, it operates like a family. There are many dealers on duty on the floor helping visitors. Most of the staff have been associated with this Multi-dealer antique emporium for a very long time and know the other dealers in the group shop. The staff always seems to have the inside tract on what is hot and what is not and where to find the new treasures.

Visiting The Collinsville Antiques Company Of New Hartford

The Colllinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford gets its name from it original location in the Collinsville section of Canton. A few years ago they found a new home on Route 44 about five miles away from their former spot.

  1. I have been antiquing in CT and agree with you about the great opportunity to find just what you want. NH is great too. Unfortunately, I don't get back east very often anymore.
