Here are a sampling of the shops in and around New Holland with a focus on the smaller establishments. Many guests are also heading to the Tanger Outlets, Shops at Rockvale, or other nationally known stores.
If you like discovering new shops, consider buying a ticket to the Best Kept Secrets Tour. In April and October, the tour features 40 stops located all over Lancaster county and ticketholders will be treated to discounts, raffles, games, or other specials at each stop. You can easily fill a week visiting all the stops. The ticket book will include a map and will list the shops in a logical order. A smaller 12 Shops of Christmas tour is held in early December (check the site for current dates).
Vintage, Thrift, and Antiques
The Country Hearth B&B makes a wonderful home base for your thrifting and antiquing.
We’re very close to several vintage, antique, and thrift shops here in New Holland, and just over 10 miles (20–25 minutes) from Antiques Capital USA.
Within a comfortable walk (as long as you don’t buy too much to carry back!) you’ll find:
- Tannery Antiques and Screaming Lion Antiques (both at 148 East Main Street; 0.5 miles or 10 minute walk). There are two floors of offerings.
- Jazzy Julie’s Past to Present (150 East Main Street) is next door to Tannery Antiques and offers a few rooms of items for sale.
- Lucky Dog Thrift (158 East Main Street, with an additional entrance around the corner on Railroad Avenue) is a sprawling 17,000+ square feet of thrift and consignment that can easily take hours to explore. Just when you think you’re near the end, you’ll turn a corner and find yourself in yet another spacious room of sale items.
A very short drive (1 mile; 3 minutes) west of the Country Hearth you’ll find the Re-Uzit Shop of New Holland. This is a very open and carefully organized shop with clothes, house wares, furniture and more.
A little farther out (4 miles; 7 minutes) are Vintage Kollections (245 Gristmill Road, New Holland, PA) and Cornfields (same address). These two adjacent shops feature a wide variety of antiques, primitives, and salvaged items from knickknacks to furniture and everywhere in between. And while you’re in the area, check out the nearby Mary’s Gift Shop (737 N Railroad Avenue, New Holland).
