Newburgh’s Vintage Shopping Destinations
From vinyl records to home goods and décor, everything old is new again. An increasing number of people under the age of 45 are buying vintage and antique items. The quality, sustainability and convenience are not just a trend but conscious change.
Walking the aisles and booths of the award-winning Newburgh Vintage Emporium and their newly opened Newburgh Vintage Ware-House will inspire and stir up memories for us over the trend buying age (like me!). Vintage shopping at two locations within 7 miles in Newburgh is truly a treasure hunter’s dream. With over 125 dealers at both locations, you never know what you’re going to find.
The original location on Route 9W, which opened in 2013 was the perfect spot for a store founded with a vision for being the leading purveyor of vintage and antique goods in the Hudson Valley. It has over 11,000 sq ft of shopping with 45 dealers of vintage and locally made goods. You’ll find Mid-Century Modern, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Americana, Primitive, European antiques, Arts & Crafts, Industrial Design, repurposed and custom-made furniture. For collectors, there are vinyl records, Lionel trains, comic books and more. Satisfy your sweet tooth and childhood memories with their vintage-inspired candy shop.
After being dealers at the store for over 3 years, new owners Anthony Vesnaver and Matt Smith bring a fresh perspective and extensive background of retail and design experience to the vintage and antique world. Along with a group of over 50 vintage and design goods dealers, there is something for everyone. The friendly and dedicated staff will bring your treasured finds to the front so you can continue shopping and hunting.
In December of 2019, they opened their second location in Newburgh on 17K. The new location features an additional 30,000 sq ft showroom of furniture ranging from the early 1700’s to the mid 1970’s with numerous vintage design room vignettes. There are quite a few surprises: a 1950’s milk delivery truck, architectural salvage pieces, an 8 Ft Yetti (who likes to pose for pictures), a vintage clothing ‘shop in shop” and on-site clothing archive.
Their NY-17K location allows space for consignment furniture and stylized areas featuring staged sets from primitive to mid-century.
This building was the site of the former “Ware-House Furniture’, a family run business based in Newburgh for decades. From 1940’s-1958, it was the site of the ‘Avalon Roller Drome’, a popular skating and entertainment venue where Jimmy Dean played concerts. In the 1960’s ‘Big Scot’ provided loyal customers everything from dresses to electronics.
“We wanted to put Newburgh on the map for vintage and antiques, with 2 locations 7 minutes apart and over 125 dealers, there is truly something for everyone!” – Anthony and Matt
