If you are looking to do some treasure hunting, PEI is home to many wonderful small antique shops packed with gems from another era. While PEI is the smallest province, they make up for the rich history and well-kept antiques. So why not check out some of these antique stores around PEI to add a unique flair to your home?
Island Uniquities & Antiques and Ice Boat Rarities & Antiques
This shop is really two shops owned by the same owners. It started with Island Uniquities & Antiques, located in the restored Mason Hall. Then the collection grew to be too large for one space, so Ice Boat Rarities & Antiques opened in the former Cape Traverse United Church. Both shops highlight Maritime and East Coast treasures.
