Antiquing In Charming Canton, CT On Route 44: You'll Like Queen Anne Antiques Faboulous Things
One of my favorite smaller antique shops in Canton, CT , Queen Anne Antiques, just moved her shop from the back of her plaza to a front spot right on Route 44. Besides having a new home, April also has a new name, "Queen Anne Fabulous Things". Now, I have followed this shop as it has morphed from it's original pre-Canton days of "country" to it's current incarnation. All I can say is April is really developing her own unique style and I don't know how to describe it.
Boho Chic Style
In a previous article I wrote about her as being somwhat "Bohemian Global" now. But I could also say Queen Anne Antiques is "Boho Chic". While we generally apply Boho Chic to fashion styles which incorporate 1960's Hippie styles, I think April has successfully fused Hippie-Vintage-Chic-Industrial styles very well. A Small Shop Packed With Vintage, Cottage, Retro, Industrial Antiques and Collectibles
As I said earlier, it is really hard to tell you what you will find at April's shop. One thing for sure is that you never know what you will find and you can count on her stock slways changing. You might find a collection of vintage dress forms, studio pottery, vintage sock dolls, cottage style dressers, decorating books, old luggage and more. The goods are always a li
ttle edgy and displayed with an extra oomph.
