Rare Finds on Route 7

Like an objet d’art that’s lost its luster, Route 7 doesn’t attract the numbers of antiques hunters it once did. The old road, which stretches from Norwalk to the Canadian border, used to be the premier route for antiques aficionados trolling for treasures in Connecticut. In fact, going from one spot to the next on this road turned “antique” into a verb.

Increased commuter and commercial traffic, however, slowed antiquing to a crawl, sending the browsers over the past couple of decades to the state’s new antiques capital, Woodbury.
