When you see Antique Bazaar of Strahtalbyn’s eclectic collection of 18th-century pepper pots, Art Deco typewriters, and Victorian figurines, you’ll realize the 50-minute drive to get here is worthwhile.

As of January 2024, the market’s top-featured items are a1920s 14-kt gold-carved Carnelian ring, a Royal Doulton Flambe horse plow vase, and a 1920s P.M.G. C.O.A. switchboard phone—all maintained well and perfect conversation-starters.

The only downside is the price of their relics, which typically runs from $500 to $2000. But, hey, you can’t put a price on history!
