New Jersey antique shops appeal to all types of treasure-seekers—whether you’re a collector of vintage records, a lover of period furniture or a fervent forager of one-of-a-kind finds. Check out one (or more!) of these antique-shopping destinations, many of which are located in historical boroughs and enchanting small towns.
Keyport Antique District, Keyport
Known as the “Pearl of the Bayshore,” Keyport is a former oyster industry hub on the scenic shores of Raritan Bay. Peek into the borough’s past on Front Street, where 19th-century storefronts now house boutiques and antique shops, including Reimagine Home Design, where you can pick up old-fashioned home décor, cameras, dolls and more, and A Family Treasure, a great place to purchase vintage jewelry, records, furniture and more.
Golden Nugget Antique & Flea Market, Lambertville
The streets of Lambertville, dubbed “The Antiques Capital of New Jersey,” are peppered with preserved 18th- and 19th-century homes. In addition to the various vintage shops on Bridge, Main and Union streets, a stop at the Golden Nugget on River Road is a must. This impressive flea market features an amazingly diverse collection of indoor antique dealers and a seemingly endless number of outdoor merchants.
The Andover Village, Andover
Housed in a charming colonial building on Andover’s Main Street, The Andover Village is the place to find time-treasured, collectible furniture and rustic décor, including statues, fountains, gates, trellises, paintings, primitives, mirrors and candelabras.
Historic Burlington Antiques Emporium, Burlington
With numerous notable buildings—including the county’s oldest home, the Revell House—Burlington is rich in historical sites and places to unearth exciting antique finds. There’s so much to investigate at Historic Burlington Antiques Emporium, from retired amusement park fixtures and retro toys to military collectables. To learn more about the town’s storied past (established in 1677 by English Quakers), visit the Burlington County Historic Society, New Jersey’s oldest pharmacy, and St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, the state’s oldest Episcopal Church.
