Kensington’s Antique Row

Hey, everyone. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I am beginning to fall behind on my photos–one of the good things about doing a 365 project–so I’m posting some taken a few months ago.

Kensington, Maryland, has the oldest antiques center in metropolitan D.C. called Antique Row, located on Howard Avenue. Though it’s not the biggest antiques venue, there are some very nice things there.

I especially like this shop called Hope Chest.

K Town Bistro has a lovely window, don’t you think?

There’s an old gas station with a vintage clock

and of course, antique stores with great stuff, including baby quilts. . . .

We’ve been back to Kensington since I took these photos, and I was surprised to see that Hope Chest had moved. They have a bigger place now, but this particular storefront is no more.

Oh, I’d like to welcome two new subscribers. 🙂

    These photos have a nice summer feel… I see why they would have wanted a bigger place but hope it hasn’t lost all of its charm.

    • The front wasn’t nearly as nice when we went back, but hopefully it will be good again. They have wonderful stuff inside the shop, so I may ask them for permission to take photos someday soon.

    Makes me think of summer! You’ll have to pull out these photos again in February when we’re in the depths of a snowy winter.
