AntiquesWhen you are traveling Maine’s roads, one thing you can count on seeing many of is used book and antique shops.  The drive to Southwest Harborhas its fair share, and I do believe I have stopped at most of them along the way.

AntiquesHere’s a glimpse of what’s inside.

AntiquesMuch of it is what I’d call plain ole junk shelved from floor to ceiling.

AntiquestWhat would you like, a lobster buoy,

antiquesa pair of hockey skates and a stick

antiquesor maybe an old Apple monitor?  You name it and I’ll find it for you!

typewriter/antiqueAs for me, my eyes are always open for crystal or glass bells, a lovely piece of glassware, beautiful old dishes or something quirky hidden and collecting dust.

Maine/CleoniceAll this looking does wear me out though, so I just might have to stop in Ellsworth for a bite to eat and drink.  I did have to look twice for Cleonice as it has now partnered with the Maine Grind making both places doubly better.

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

  1. We sell our stuff in between so many places like this in Arundel 🙂 Know people up in Caanan and there used to be so many places I hit while I spent every weekend in Maine. The man beside us Sat. had gorgeous glass objects as his folks passed away and he was going to try his hand at Yard Sales 🙂

  2. I saw some wonderful jewelry made from those aqua glass resisters. It was used like fused glass in pendants and earrings. I’d like to try that if I knew it wouldn’t blow up in my kiln.

  3. It seems like it is getting harder and harder to find the little treasures. Although what do they say…one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. 🙂

  4. I sure wish I could tag along with you on one of these trips. Those are treasures, not junk. 😉 I spotted a thing or two I’d love to add to my collection.

  5. Cleonice is one of our favorite places! You’ll have to stop by our house when you make the trip in the fall!

  6. You never know what you may come across in those so called Junk shops. I used to run an Antique shop of my own and still cannot pass an Antique/Junk shop now. That was 30 yrs ago
