I-95 Antique Shops just off the highway CT-FL

The end of March we are driving down to Orlando, Florida. We have found a few antique places along the way in the past but I am sure there are some shops we have missed. We really enjoy stopping in Selma, NC. There are many shops in the old downtown. It's good for a few hours of walking. Also, if any of you know of any antique shops around Orlando or in the vicinity that would be great too.

Old Town area of Petersburg VA has some interesting little shops. Heading South on 95, take the Washington St exit & follow the signs to Old Town & the Visitors Center. The neighborhood looks a little rough going in but Old Town is a treasure trove of restored 19th century buildings with shops & restaurants worth the stop.

Lambertville, NJ: About 25 minutes or so off I-95, north on Route 29. You could easily spend a day in Lambertville, which is full of antique shops, art galleries, restaurants, two used book stores. In fact, you could easily spend the day in Lambertville and another going up and then back down along the river, stopping in the various river towns. There is also the very touristy New Hope, PA, across the bridge from Lambertville. I believe there are still antique shops there, but we usually mosey over to New Hope only to eat at Tastebuds or a vegan restaurant, Sprig and Vine. Both highly recommended.

Back to Lambertville, here is a link to some of the town's antique shops. I don't know how current it is:

There is also the Golden Nugget Antique Market, which you would pass before reaching Lambertville. It's mentioned in that link.

Another article discussing the town's antique shops:

That article mentions David Rago Auctions. If they're having a preview on the day you visit, I'd highly recommend that you stop by. It'd be well worth it.
