In with the Old: Creating a look with antiques

Text: Danielle Gaebel

Who doesn’t love the look of a bedroom, kitchen or family room lovingly decorated with antique furniture, quilts and other touches? Antiques are a great way to bring warm, authentic country style into your home while being earth friendly – reduce, reuse, recycle, right? Luckily, the Upper Delaware River region is home to a fabulous range of antique and vintage stores. Antiques are best collected slowly, over time. With a little exploration, you will find the stores that have what you like at a price you can afford. Every outing can be an adventure to find new pieces to add to your collection.
