Visiting Centerport Antiques And Etceteras, Centerport, N.Y.

Antiquing on The North Shore Of Long Island: Stopping In Centerport

It was off to the North Shore of Long Island, bopping around with my sister visiting some really fun antique shops and Multi-dealer stores. One of my favorite stops was visiting "Centerport Antiques And Etceteras" on Route 25 (Main Street).

Centerport Antiques Is In a Lovely Setting With Cared For Gardens

When you pull up to this charming group shop which is spread into several cottage, you are wondering just what will you find inside? The exterior buildings and grounds are well taken care of with a colorful whimsical theme. Specially made signs with cute sayings greet you as well as many potted seasonal blooming flowers and rock gardens. It is really important for owners of antique shops to create inviting shops. Here the owners went the extra mile to paint the exterior of their store in eye catching colors. It's an easy place to find over and over again.

What Will You Find At Centerport Antiques?

But, enough time of the cute is time to tell you about what is inside! Once again this is one of those group shops that looks smaller than it actually is. You will find a mix of collectibles, jewelry, decorative pieces, primitives, cottage collectibles, Country collectibles and antiques, wall decor, wicker furniture, Victorian, dolls, toys etc. Of course I am on the hunt for kitchen collectibles, so I size up a place based on what it offer in vintage kitchenwares.

Plenty of Kitchen Collectibles At Centerport Antiques

Centerport did indeed have many dealers with lovely displays of older housewares, kitchen-wares, glassware, textiles etc. You will find a pleasant staff and lots of goodies to take home.
