Antiques of The Kentucky Wildlands

One-of-a-kind treasures, rare finds and special keepsakes can be found throughout the many historic towns and villages scattered throughout the Appalachian foothills, valleys and mountains of The Kentucky Wildlands.

Get off the beaten path and meander down narrow winding roads to small towns filled with collectibles and treasures unlikely to be found in larger cities. Much of the fun and excitement lie in the exploration of these charming towns rich in Appalachian culture, where you can slow down and peruse their many hidden gems and get to meet the knowledgeable and colorful shop owners themselves.

Primitive pieces, such as homemade furniture, crafts, art, handcrafted quilts, dishes, linens and glassware can be found everywhere from antique-filled barns and general stores to malls, co-ops and Main Street shops.

From Moose Creek Primitives and Quilts in Hazard, Kennett’s Antiques and Trading Post in Monticello, PJ’s Antiques in Hazard, and Treasures on Main and Good Old Days Antiques in Paintsville to The Homespun Sisters in Grayson and the shops lining Kentucky Highway 7, such as Gwen’s Country Attic, Delana’s Little Shoppe, and Bow Barn Gifts and Antiques (to name a few), shoppers are sure to find something unforgettable to catch their eye.
