Looking for a rare first edition book or antique piece of furniture? Look no further than Frederick County, known for its large and vibrant network of antique dealers open year-round both downtown and elsewhere.
Some of the larger shops and warehouses are located in downtown Frederick, many within easy walking distance for those interested in taking in the sights and atmosphere of historic downtown Frederick as they browse and shop. One of the larger antique shops, Emporium Antiques, features collections from more than 100 dealers under the same roof. Located at 112 East Patrick St., Emporium Antiques offers treasure hunters an impressive 55,000 square foot warehouse to walk through and search for deals, and, as an added bonus, the warehouse is pet-friendly.
Promoting itself as the city's oldest antique store, Cannon Hill Place, another warehouse downtown, is also open to dogs at its location at 111 South Carroll St., which houses more than 40 different dealers in its two floor building, offering everything from antique furniture and silverware to more "modern" vintage collections like records and old audio equipment.
Plenty of other shops offer antiquers the perfect motivation to venture outside of the city into the rest of the county to visit Braddock Mountain Antique Center at 5018 Old National Pike in Braddock Heights or the 34,000 square foot Emmitsburg Antique Mall featuring 120 booths at its location at 1 Chesapeake Ave. in Emmitsburg.
