Promoting Antiquing in New England

"Antiquing" is a often defined as a shopping activity. We prefer a wider definition, "Antiquing" is not only buying, selling and collecting antiques, but includes learning about them and enjoying them. A good way to learn is to actually see the real thing. Historic Houses, Villages and Seaports are educational institutions as well as displays. Most offer courses and seminars as well as lectures when you "take the tour".

Introduction

Back in the days when we were furnishing our home with antiques,
you got in your Automobile and drove to shops or shows. Today,
the Internet has become a major factor in all phases of Antiquing,
including Antiquing by automobile.

The number of Antique Shops with webpages has increased dramatically
and maps have became available. It would take a Google type capability to
present a useful listing. Fortunately, Google has stepped up with such a
mapping and listinga service.

For example, if you click HERE and type in "antique shops RI",you gat
a map that shows not only the major shops, but many smaller shops
(shown as small red circles).

You will find Links to this Google service are included in the "Antiquing by Automobile"

The large number of viewers using fast, high bandwidth connections to the internet has permitted website to include many images, The "Antiquing by Internet" page will feature links to websites that offer many good images of their offerings. such as this Shaker Candle Stand
