Coffee and Antiques at The Coffee Trade In Avon, CT

Coffee Trade Antiques: A Lovely Coffee Cafe With Charming Antiques and Collectibles

I have spent a lot of time at Coffee Trade Antiques in Avon, CT  over the years. My second book "Hot Cottage Collectibles for Vintage Styule Homes" captured many of the lovely collectibles that Joan, the owner sells.

Great Displays at Coffee Trade Antiques

It is always a pleasure to visit her shop because she is a superb decorator and always has such charming displays. I learned so much over the years from Joan's examples. When you visit The Coffee Trade, you will find Joan's husband Dick upfront in the coffee bar area serving customers or roasting coffee beans. It is also in this area that you will find coffee and tea related housewares, gifts and of course plenty of coffee and tea beverages.

Enjoy A Cup Of Coffee Surrounded By Antiques and Collectibles

As you stroll to the back of this quaint shop, you will enter into the cafe area where you can stay and chat and enjoy a cup of coffee, hot chocolate, smoothies etc.  You will be surrounded by a delightful collection of vintage glassware, teacups, kitchen collectibles, planters,  jewelry, books, textiles, furnishings and more.

If you are visiting the area, be sure to stop into The Coffee Trade , 21 West Main St., Avon, CT Here is their website link

  1. All antiques are priceless in this setting. I notice the coffee franchises are trying to have an ambience like this minus the antiques . Antique y. Requires the antiques no matter what.
