Art at the Edge and the Country Gentleman

Hey, this is really cool...if you're coming to Art at the Edge, you'll enjoy a weekend of extra discounts at Newburgh's Country Gentleman Antiques Shop!
 
 
The Country Gentleman has been a shopping destination in old Newburgh since 1983 and is housed in one of Newburgh's most recognized landmarks at the corner of Jennings and State Streets.  Built in 1841 as the Exchange Hotel.  The place was modeled after architectural plans brought to our town from Germany and has brick walls that are 27" thick. 
 

During it's 173 year life, the building, some locals still call the hotel, has served as a hotel, an armory and hospital during the Civil War, and later was the first department store in the county, selling furniture, clothing, household supplies and dry goods...the place has an amazing history. 
 


The Country Gentleman and shop proprietor, Scott Lauderdale,  has extended a very special discount for everyone attending Art at the Edge...if you spend over $20.00, you'll receive 25% off your total bill...it's a great deal and I am sure you'll find lot's of treasures to take home with you to help you remember the time you've spent in our quaint little town.
 
 
 
The Country Gentleman is always brimming with amazing pieces that you are going to love!
 
 
Whether it's antique dishware, lamps and lighting, primitive furniture, cupboards, or vintage Christmas decorations, the place is a picker's paradise! 
 
 
I've been a customer of Scott's for about 30 years...he always has the best pickin' in town!

 
And since he's just across the street from my new place...I can visit any time I want...I know you are going to love this place too. 


I'll just let pictures tell the rest of the story...

 
The place is amazing!

 
You can actually feel the history of the place!

 


 
What you should know as you prepare for your visit...Scott has a great selection of antique photographs, cabinet cards, antique post cards, stereoscope slides and vintage ephemera...I can spend hours looking through the piles of his incredible collection...mixed media artists...be prepared to spend some time here!

 
And...if you are looking for something that you don't see...ask!  More than likely Scott has it somewhere in the backroom or can get his hands on it. People from all over the Midwest bring their collections to him. He has the reputation for being one of the best, most knowledgeable, dealers in the region. 


 
 
And, when you visit, you'll meet Toby...he is the unofficial greeter at the store...
 
 
 I am so pleased to let you know that The Country Gentleman is a Merchant Partner with Art at the Edge...I know you will enjoy your experience at the shop...it's really like stepping back in time!  If you like the pics you see here...go like The Country Gentlemen's Facebook page and let him know you like what you see and that you're coming for a visit...

Now, I have to go across the street to see Scott...I called him on the phone yesterday and asked him to put a special treasure aside for me...

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope to see you at Art at the Edge in Newburgh in October!

  2. Thanks for the trip down Memory Lane! When I visited the States last year, I was lucky enough to visit a few stores like this one in Missouri. It was magical! I could really imagine the by-gone eras and the beautiful (and sometimes not so beautiful) items would have ALL gone in my suitcase if I had one the size of a State! If I'm ever lucky enough to re-visit the USA, I will look out for this beautiful store. x
