Antique items with a local historical connection
Whether you live in California or New York, local history has a lot of meaning. No matter where you are from or where you live now, collecting antiques with a local historical connection is an exciting way to collect but also to keep the history of a particular area alive. If you are looking for local history in Southampton, check out your antique stores and see what pieces of your town’s history you can find.
With its long history and tradition, it’s no wonder Bucks County has become a top destination for antiquing. So much of the county’s past has stayed here, passed down from generation to generation before arriving at one of its many antique stores, like Antique Allure. You can own a piece of local history after an antiquing trip through beautiful Bucks County.
When you are visiting somewhere and you are an antique collector, it’s no surprise that you will find yourself carving out time in your trip for an antiquing jaunt. While you are out hunting for the next great find, consider owning a piece of local history to take home with you. Local history gives your item more to talk about. You can use it as a way to talk about where you found it and why you were there visiting. Looking at this item can also take you back to that time when you found it and all of the wonderful things you experienced while you were visiting.
At Antique Allure, we have many dealers in our large showroom and there are a lot of local antiques to be found here. We have items like signs that are only found here. We are located in Southampton, which is only 18 miles North of Philadelphia. Finding a sign, such as Hires Root Beer, that originated in Philadelphia is an homage to local history. The root beer wasn’t produced anywhere else in the world. Even items like pottery that may have been made elsewhere, was most likely used by someone local. Imagine all the meals that were made using that pottery.
When you shop local, no matter what you are buying, you are looking for items indigenous to that area. When you vacation in Hawaii, for example, you may take home seashells found on the beaches there. The same holds true for antiques. Think about the pieces you are buying and if they have a history. Antique Allure and its dealers have many stories behind a lot of their items. These are stories and items you will only find here.
