My very FAVORITE  antique store isn’t in downeast Maine at all.  It’s in Searsport, which is the mid-coast (Searsport, by the way, has several flea/antique outdoor markets during the warmer months.
Anyway.  It’s called Treasures and Trash Barn.  I actually never knew it even HAD  name until I started writing this — I always knew it as the barn with all of the sinks and beds out front across the street from the gas station.
Whatever kind of vintage part or accessory you are looking for, you’ll find it here.
Bathtubs, Sinks, old windows, ploughs, hinges, doorknobs, keys, telephones with varying degrees of rust can be found all over the property in varying degree of rust.  Try to make some time to look around because the yard and barn are filled to the rafters and you never know what treasure might be hiding behind, under or above something.
Treasures and Trash Barn is located at:
156 E. Maine Street (Rt 1)
Searsport, Maine 04974
207-548-2787 (calling before going is recommended in the off season)
