Antiquing in Ballston Spa, NY



Ballston Spa is a small village in Saratoga County, New York, north of the capital, Albany.  After working in Albany, I stopped in the village to do a little "antiquing".

Stone Soup Antiques is a 2 story shop, in an old brick building, which was filled with beautiful old furniture, glassware and dishes, jewels, linens, tools and much more:


Around the corner was Front Street Home - a decorating shop with furniture, antiques and textiles:


My favorite shop was Daisy Dry Goods - a thrift shop with a variety of second hand home furnishings, clothing, housewares, jewels and paper goods:


Ballston Spa is a quaint village, easy to park and walk around, and only a short drive to Saratoga Springs, where I found a great little place to have Happy Hour and appetizers:


The Wine Bar offers a wonderful view of Broadway, the main street in town, where there are many shops, restaurants and boutiques !

This one is always a fun shop to visit - they offer samples of lots of teas and honey - My favorite was chocolate honey!

If you are in the area - these are a few unique spots that you might enjoy!!

  3. I spent a lot of time in Ballston Spa and Saratoga for my job, but that was many years ago when Madame Jumel was still around. LOL I would love these shops and will check out Daisy Dry Goods on my next trip.

  4. This looks like just the kind of town we love to visit! I have never tasted or even heard of chocolate honey but it sounds like a delicious topping for dessert! Linda
