Retro Chic At Valley Farm Antiques In Essex, Connecticut

Mid-Century Furnishings And Hip Collectibles At Valley Farm Antiques On Connecticut's Shoreline

Valley Farm Antiques in Essex, Connecticut right on the border of Old Saybrook on Route 154 is a Multi-Dealer Antique Store with many furnishings and decor which will remind you of Retro Chic (50s & 60s).

Retro SoHo In Connecticut

Now let me clarify what I am saying.....this converted barn is loaded with antiques and collectibles from different decades but there is a
Retro SoHo flavor to this shop which is quite evident.
The shop is very colorful and very different from some of the more formal shops in the area.

Original Abstract Paintings At Valley Farm Antiques

Located on Connecticut's Shoreline this shop is on two very expansive levels, with plenty of Shabby Chic outside and in the extra garage. This Antique Shop has plenty of secret hiding places. You will also find lots of abstract original paintings done by the owners husband, a;long with plenty of antique and vintage books to browse.

Old Old Barn Filled With Hips Antiques And Collectibles

While one might expect to find Country collectibles in this old barn, you will be delighted to learn that the look and feel of the place is a bit more eclectic leaning toward Mid Century and Hip Sixties. Another surprise is that the main portion of the shop has many glass showcases filled with elegant glassware, jewelry, silver, table top collectibles, toys, vanity items and more.
