Scout & Annie
Scout & Annie has been serving Kennett Square from their State Street location since 2011. (You may also be interested in their sister store, worKS, on Walnut Street, which features handmade goods from local creators.) Their antique shop on State Street specializes in vintage home goods, particularly mid-century modern furniture, lighting, and accessories. If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind piece to accent your home, there’s no better place to look than Scout & Annie’s. While you’re there, check out their assortment of highly giftable candles and luxury bath products.
McLimans Furniture Warehouse
As the name suggests, McLimans Furniture Warehouse specializes in furniture—specifically, antique reproduction and pre-owned furniture. They are a large, popular store that also carries Amish-made furniture. You can preview some of their inventory on their website, but keep in mind it’s not updated regularly. Your best bet is to visit in person and grab your favorites quickly before they’re gone. This family-owned store is also located just a few short miles away from Longwood Gardens, so consider combining a day of antiquing with a relaxing stroll through the gardens.
Brandywine River Antiques Market
If you haven’t quite gotten your fill of antiquing in Kennett Square, head over to nearby Chadds Ford, PA. It’s about 10 minutes away. Swing by the Brandywine River Antiques Market on Rt. 1 and enjoy strolling around this historic, 19th century bank barn. Its 14,000 square feet are home to 40 antique dealers who offer an unbeatable selection of 18th and 19th-century goods.
Their wares include furniture, textiles, pottery, and toys, as well as silver, glass, and porcelain items. You’ll find curiosities, such as apothecary bottles, as well as antique jewelry and tea sets. They also boast one of the largest selections of estate furniture in Pennsylvania. Plus, they offer a convenient delivery service if you decide to splurge on some large items.
Browsing the collection can work up a hunger, but there’s a convenient Mushrooms Café onsite serving breakfast, lunch, and coffee. Expect lots of delicious locally-produced mushrooms on the menu.
