Things to do in Wilmington, Delaware?

My sister will be traveling with her husband to Wilmington, Delaware next week. They will be there from Monday until Saturday. He will be working during the day. She is interested in flea markets and antiques. Does anyone have any suggestions for her? Any other points of interest they should check out while in the area? Thank You !

Philadelphia is only 30 miles away and plenty of things to see/do there.

Wilmington is a wonderful area; if she has access to a car, please consider Winterthur (Dupont estate), Longwood Gardens, Hagley Museum. Near Longwood Gardens is the Wyeth museum. She has many opportunities.
