The locals know that the best deals on the finest pieces are found early, so you may want to double-fist your coffee and head out early. That way, you’ll have plenty of time to hit the Lancaster, PA antique shops, galleries and malls.
Start off your day at Cackleberry Farm Antique Mall, then check out Renningers Antique Market.
You will have worked up a mighty appetite after all that shopping and dealing, so fill up with a delicious lunch at Shady Maple Smorgasbord. While you are there, be sure to visit their gift shop with over 20,000 square feet of unique gift items, collectibles, dolls, souvenirs, home decor, Amish crafted oak furniture, and more.
After lunch head down a three-mile strip lined with antique shops that host over 3,000 dealers. This area is referred to as the Antiques Capital USA.
You may not be hungry because of your grand smorgasbord lunch, so consider a lighter, quicker meal at Shady Maple's Dutchette specializing in juicy cheese steaks, burgers, deli sandwiches, fries, onion rings, platters, salad bar, potato bar, pasta bar, sundae bar and much more.
To end your perfect shopping day, check out Adamstown Inns & Cottages where you can rest and relax with Victorian elegance and stunning English gardens.
