The Antiques Capital of Connecticut

Recently, my sister, Laura, told me that she and her husband, Randy, needed to escape the winter doldrums and were taking a drive to Woodbury, Connecticut.  Located in the western part of the state in scenic Litchfield County, Woodbury is known as the 'Antiques Capital of Connecticut.'  This reputation became established more than 50 years ago when antiques dealers began setting up shop in the historic homes on and around Main Street.  Woodbury soon became a popular destination for collectors and for the curious.  I, myself, have made many trips to Woodbury and have found many great treasures.  There are some lovely inns and some great places to eat.  It's a fun place to visit.  Please enjoy these photos from Laura and Randy's field trip.
