Woodstock Hill Antiques
Welcome! Thank you for visiting my new DIG site. I have been an antiques dealer with a large shop in northeastern Connecticut for 40 years. We may have met at Brimfield, the Tolland or Danielson [CT] shows, or in a group shop. I specialize in 18th- and early 19th-century antiques. For the first time, I designed a shop website this year. For our full online listing and terms and conditions, go to: www.woodstockhillantiques.com. Merchandise listings will be updated on a regular basis. Since I've lived in eastern Connecticut most of my life, much of the shop inventory is from house calls. I look forward to hearing from you. Call me at 860.928.6148 or 860.942.9825 (cell or text).
