In Peterborough and southern New Hampshire, we have some wonderful opportunities for antique and consignment shopping. We recently created Google Map that highlight many of the antiques shops in Peterborough and areas to the East and South. (A map for shops to the West, towards Keene, is still in the works.) To the East, only about 15 minutes away, is one of my favorite shops, White Home Collections. The shop occupies a large white farmhouse house on the south side of Route 101 East (at Route 31) in Wilton. Three beautiful floors of antiques and gifts that artfully flow out into the three attached barns, porch and patio areas as well. They have a wonderful mix of antiques and vintage styles, including items for the home, garden, holidays, apparel, and more. And they do a wonderful job displaying their items to make them look fresh, interesting, useful and beautiful! I feel like every time I go there, everything is completely new! (You can see lots of photos on the White Home Collections Facebook page.) Driving past one time, I noticed a customer quote on the announcement board under their sign. It said something to the effect of "WHC (White Home Collections) is the happiest place on Earth!" I totally agree!
To add to the fun, White Home Collections has a second location, called White Home Market, just up the road! White Home Market is open only three days a month, but it has a new theme each month and fresh inventory every day. Back in June, I had the pleasure of checking out the "Cottages and Cabins" Market with one of my sisters. It was amazing!
In addition to the small house at the market location, there was a bright, spacious tent filled with beautiful items, great ideas, and happy people. Although I wasn't looking for anything in particular, it was impossible to look around without finding something I HAD to have! :)
Luckily, their next market weekend is right around the corner, August 17-19, with the theme "Worn, Weathered & Wonderful". Additional market dates include:
September 14-16 - Black, White and Gray
October 19-21 - Bountiful Harvest Home
November 16-18 - Deck The Halls
November 29 - Customer Appreciation
I can't wait!
