It’s a fun fact that the Harrisburg area, especially Carlisle, is home to some of the biggest car shows on the East Coast. Most notably, the annual “Corvettes at Carlisle” event is the largest Corvette event in the world. Because car shows attract so many visitors, antique shops of all sizes have flourished – all those relatives with little to no interest in cars need something to do, after all!

The car shows are coming up fast; the first car show of the season opens its doors the weekend of April 23rd. Although there are tons of antique stores in the area, it is possible to get a sampling of what central Pennsylvania has to offer in a single weekend. Here are a few must-see antique stores in the Harrisburg area:

NorthGate Antique Mall
