One of the great things about moving to a new State is exploring the area and finding great places to eat, shop and explore! I lived in Rhode Island my entire life (minus a short time over the line in Connecticut) and moving from the smallest State in the Country to New Hampshire has been an amazing experience! We visited New Hampshire many times growing up and I also took my kids to visit as they were growing up. Visits to Santa’s Village and Storyland were magical and some of my most treasured childhood memories.
My daughter loved New Hampshire so much that she attended College here and decided to live and work here as soon as she graduated. I made the jump right along with her and we live in beautiful Hillsborough County. If you’ve visited my blog before you know I love thrift stores and antiquing-both of which are abundant in Hillsborough. With the Spring and Summer months approaching, I know lots of people visit New Hampshire, so I thought it would be fun to share some must see antique and thrift stores to add to your list. So let’s get to the details of my very first stop!
Vinterest Antiques & Flips
Set in Milford, New Hampshire Vinterest is also easily accessible from Massachusetts, as it is just about a 35 minute drive from the Massachusetts line. First of all, I have to comment on the creative name-a combination of Pinterest and Vintage-love it! The second I pulled into the parking lot and saw the beautifully decorated front porch of Vinterest, I knew I was in for a treat! Boy was I right! The porch was seasonally decorated with Spring and Easter decor and I immediately spotted a bunny planter that would be perfect for my front porch! I scooped that baby up and walked in the store with a big smile on my face! I added the Spring flowers, but look how adorable this planter is:
I can’t wait for the warmer weather so I can add real flowers and place it on my front porch. They had a few other animals too!

The day I visited was actually the second Saturday of the month where Vinterest hosts a special event with refreshments and snacks. Check out the coffee station and hot cocoa bar:
From the moment I walked in to the moment I left, everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. With candles burning and one vendor giving out samples of soup, plus several raffles and giveaways, I was ready to spend the day, lol! Vinterest is much larger inside then it appears with over 65 artisans and pickers sharing unique finds and handmade goods. You can find a list of vendors on their website here. I received permission to share photos so you could see just how large a space this is, and also the variety of some of the items they sell.
- Organic Handcrafted Soaps & Beeswax Candles
- Refinished Furniture
- Handmade Signs
- Handcrafted Home Decor Items
- Wedding Guest Books & Journals
- Custom Jewelry
- Salvaged Window Art and much, much more…
The great thing about Vinterest is there is something for every decorating style, from vintage, to antique, to modern. There is shabby chic and boho, plus the ever popular farmhouse style 🙌. Just when you think you are done exploring the massive loft style room, there is still a downstairs to visit. You guys-I may have had heart palpitations when I entered the downstairs room that was covered with floor to ceiling shelves filled with dishes! Dishes and tea cups, pottery and pitchers. Check this out:
I am part of a Tablescaping group of bloggers that hosts blog hops where we each set a pretty table seasonally. I just shared my Spring Tablescape here, so you understand my excitement at seeing all the lovely dishes so reasonably priced!
Now that you’ve had a tour of Vinterest, there is one other really cool thing that they offer: classes and DIY workshops! How awesome is that? You can check out the schedule of classes on their website here. From the amazingly popular and fun fluid painting, to DIY Wood Signs and more, enjoy a night out with friends or learn a new craft just for you! You can also check out my Easter Tablescape from last year here.
Or see how I used thrift store cake pans to make an adorable tiered tray for Easter here.
