Massachusetts is where our country got its start, and this fact is reflected in the antiques you can find on Cape Cod. Discover intricate quilts that were originally created for function, but with a beauty so unique, you may want to hang them on your wall as a piece of art. Colorful wooden toys hand carved for a Cape Cod child’s enjoyment still retaining faded remnants of once bright paint. Even kitchen utensils the pilgrims used daily to create simple, yet hearty meals for their family’s continued sustenance are available for purchase.
Every step further into the recesses of our simple Cape Cod antique stores offers a new treasure and a new insight into how our forefathers lived, giving you the opportunity to bring a piece of history home! Here’s a list of some of our favorite places to find antiques on Cape Cod—happy shopping!
