Trash To Treasure: Discover Antiquing in Bainbridge

If the mere thought of finding one-of-a-kind treasures makes you smile with excitement, Bainbridge is the place to satisfy your craving. Poke around the seven different antique shops in Bainbridge to see what treasures you find! Bainbridge has been around for over 200 years, resulting in many early American antiques circulating in local buildings and households that may land in these shops!

 

An easy drive will allow a visit to all the shops in one swing – a local antique shopping circuit. Each shop is unique and worth visiting.  The Iroquois Antiques and Collectibles is a multi-dealer experience in what used to be the local feed mill along the railroad tracks in town.  A large area of the building is filled with dealers, and good buys are spilling out onto the front porch. (10 a.m. – 5 p.m. daily). Another multi-dealer shop is Old Hickory Antiques on the north edge of town. It is an easy-to-navigate single floor building housing a variety of dealers. (10 a.m. – 5 p.m. weekdays, noon -5 p.m. Sundays, closed Tuesday) Nearby and across Route 7, the vintage items at Harmonie Hall Antiques are displayed in a historic carriage house, one building of the several on the estate, including a house that dates to 1800. (Visit when you see the Open sign).

 

Near the center of Bainbridge, there is some additional antiquing to be done. Both Sincerely Abraham, at the 1830s Truman House, and Main Street Antiques, housed in a vintage early American storefront, are open “by chance or by appointment.”  Main Street Antiques is also open most Saturdays noon – 5 p.m. and includes oddities and unusual antiques.

 

Further out of town, the Bainbridge House Barnyard Sales is located on County Road 39 […]

Different Finds Every Time: The Market in the Village Green

The Village Green is active with shoppers and vendors in the open-air market every Saturday morning, Memorial Day until November. On Labor Day Saturday, the park is particularly busy with vendors as the Bainbridge Chamber of Commerce also sponsors Bainbridge Day, with lots of additional vendors and activities on the streets of Main Street.

 

The Village Green is an attractive setting for the flea market activities in Bainbridge, located at the corner of East and South Main streets, bringing an ever-changing weekly selection of goods for bargain shoppers. This well-landscaped space provides a gathering place for other events as well and a focal point for the town.

 

The Green is ringed by three white churches (one across the street) and criss-crossed by walking paths. It is reminiscent of a New England village green, something that the early Bainbridge residents, who were transplants from Connecticut and Vermont, desired in their developing town.

 

This common area was first laid out in 1875 and embellished with trees and shrubbery to establish an ornamental park. The distinctive fountain was added around 1900 along with the soldier’s monument. Other noted features of the park include a classic white gazebo and monuments to the Vietnam War, the Korean War, and World Wars I and II.
