Best Find: Brandywine River Antiques Market
What is it:This Chadds Ford market features 40 dealers who work cooperatively to sell their antiques and collectibles, much like the antique mini-malls in Lancaster County.
What we like:The market is housed in a massive 15,000 -square-foot barn and carriage house (now Mushrooms Café), but it's still small enough to be selective about the people who display their wares here. On any given day, you'll find friendly dealers who will answer questions. Everything is tagged and priced with information.
What you'll find: The selection is huge and seems to represent nearly every style and era, from vintage textiles and 19th-century primitives such as old pine benches and cabinets to period ironwork, estate furniture, art deco glassware and china. In addition to booths, there are dealer-owned cases displaying a range of smaller items such as old apothecary bottles, tea sets, metal toys, antique jewelry and silver. Much of the bigger furniture, including Victorian wicker, dining room tables and hutches, is found upstairs.
