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 between Bainbridge and Sidney in a converted dairy barn. (Thurs. and Sat. 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Fri 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.) Antique discoveries can also be made at Wilson’s Antiques, the newest shop, which opened in July (Tues. – Sat., 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.) on Route 8, one mile north of the Route 7 and 8 intersection.
