Kensington, MD Antique Row

Hello Readers!

Wanted to let you in on a little trip we took together recently to Antique Row in Kensington, MD... just a few miles from Deweese's house!

Blythe was in the area visiting her new and adorable nephew and much to Deweese's delight was able to steal away for a few hours to play 75th+Sedgwick style. It's rare that we have an afternoon to while away together and it was so much fun.

In addition to a Starbucks run, some rearranging of furniture in Deweese's apartment and a trip to Deweese's favorite place in DC, the roof of the Cleveland Park Bar & Grill, we were also able to fit in a trip to the renowned antique shops in Kensington.

We weren't entirely sure what to expect, would it be all Beenie Babies and old books? Would the prices be good, or inflated?

Well, it was awesome. Here's a little photo tour of our trip...

An example of one of the more than 80 shops!

Oh so welcoming.


Deweese has been dying for a bowl like this. It was HUGE!

Wouldn't this be nice for some jewelry organization!

Gorgeous quilts in terrific condition.

Rustic aqua farm table for less than $200.

This reminded us of Joan.

Of course, there was some of this...

But mostly lovely things like this hand painted cup and saucer.

Deweese loved all the Americana.

And  Blythe was drooling over this bust

We didn't actually buy anything, but had a blast perusing the enormous collection of antiques. We thought the prices were pretty reasonable all in all and the atmosphere top notch. Not too moth-bally, but not too boutique-y either.

So if you're in the DC area and haven't been to Kensington, check it out! We'll be back for sure!
