Nautical Treasures, Rare Collectibles: Maine Has Antiquing Par Excellence

Have an eye for great deals and hidden treasures? Antique shoppers and collectors are constantly finding gems in Maine antique malls, flea markets, and area auctions. The Greater Portland area is rich ground for antiques that represent Maine maritime history and New England’s past.

Captain’s homes, barns, and homesteads that sprawl across acres of land provide the source for antique stores and markets that are always brimming with discoveries.

Those seeking antique shops should know that some area towns are known for their high antique store-to-person ratio along their main streets – Hallowell, Wiscasset and Searsport, for example. Options are many up and down the coast, however, at antique malls set up in old mills, parks, and outdoor markets where one-stop antiquing hits its heights. Nautical antiques are a draw in Portland and seaside neighboring towns, from compasses and sextons to lanterns and colorful fishing floats, and opportunities to discover one-of-a-kind period furniture, captain’s chairs, and estate jewelry are truly endless.

Maine’s Antique Dealers Association can keep things straight for those planning to embark early and spend all day. Others will likely stumble upon their coveted treasure by happenstance by catching a glimpse in a shop window after a downtown lunch.
