Sample Antique Tour Itinerary
Garrett County is host to a plethora of antique opportunities. To explore all antique members, we suggest starting at the Garrett County Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Center. Begin your journey in the southern end of the county. Travel south on Rt. 219 through Oakland and you will reach your first destination at Lucas Farm Primitives. Browse a variety of items including farmhouse and barn pieces, as well as handmade soaps and Amish made goods.
You’ll next want to head back to downtown Oakland for five shops within close proximity of each other. We suggest parking in the free Oakland Town Parking Lot and starting with Englander’s Antiques – you can even grab a bite in their old-fashioned grill. Just up the street is the Alder Haus – filled with unique treasures and must-have pieces. Turn the corner and you’ll be just steps away from Oakland's Indoor Flea Market & Grand Central Station. Many vendors call this home and offer a haven for avid antique hunters. Back on 2nd street, don’t miss the Book Mark’et and Antique Mezzanine. Get lost in a good book, but head up stairs for a cozy antique nook. Around the corner and a few doors down from the historic B&O Train Station, lies Cabin Fever Antiques, a large antique mall featuring a wide variety of collectibles and goods. While in Oakland, there are plenty of other shopping opportunities as well.
Don’t stop there! Back on Rt. 219 heading towards the Deep Creek Lake, be sure to stop by the Rt. 219 Indoor Flea Market to explore for that must-have piece to add to your collection. About 10 minutes north of the lake is the town of Accident, which is home to the Bear Den. Peruse their antique offerings as well as collectibles and home décor. In the very northern end of the county, be sure to include Blue Moon Antiques. With a 6,000 sq. ft. showroom, this restored General Store dating back to 1875 is located along the historic National Road (Rt. 40) in downtown Grantsville.
