Antiquing and leaf peeping

Jump to last reply

Company is coming to visit (NE of Boston) for antiquing and leaf peeping.

Dates of October 1-4 are set and can't be changed.

Given that the best color at that time is likely to be Northeast Kingdom and "Route 100 Valley" in VT, northern NH, and western/northern ME, what are your suggestions about the towns or routes that will maximize both activities? I know places we could go just to see foliage, but not to combine the two.

Any specific shops to recommend? They are looking for (among other things) old toys, old sports equipment (ice skates, golf, fishing), old advertisements, old globes and maps, small wooden furniture. Places that resemble grandma's attic (along with great deals and bargaining) are preferred over Christie's/Sotheby's type places.

On previous visits I have taken them to Essex, MA, and to the Route 1 corridor in southern ME. Not likely to be very much color either place at the beginning of October, though.
