Carlisle Antique Dealers

The Downtown Carlisle area has so much to offer and Antique shopping is no exception!

Visit: Carlisle PA Antique Dealer Guide

You can spend hours in our town and surrounding area, browsing the collections of many shop owners. From polish pottery and display cases made from antique window sills and frames at Firehouse Antiques on West Street in Carlisle, to over 100 different vendors at Bedford Street Antiques (the old Carlisle Garment Company), to shop owners that can tell and show you some of the history of the Carlisle Area.

Each antique shop has their own unique qualities that can turn your browsing experience into a ‘What’s around that corner?” adventure!

If you are searching for that once in a lifetime find, or simply browsing for something that catches your eye, don’t forget to chat with the shop owners and keepers.  Their stories can turn that simple object in the corner to the treasure in your living room.  Visit the Carlisle PA Antique Dealers Guide.

The Marketing of Carlisle : Part V

Carlisle’s Potential

Carlisle is already a destination for the local area, but it is the potential day-trippers within a two-hour driving radius who put a tremendous amount of disposable income within reach of our community. This means more people coming to Carlisle for all the right reasons, to shop, partake of our cultural events, to establish businesses and even to live in the proposed renovated areas of our downtown. For this to happen Carlisle must market itself.

Downtown Carlisle is a destination for:
• Antiques • Art • Crafts
• Specialty Shops • Fine Dining • Boutiques
• History • Architecture • Entertainment
• Cultural Events • Fine Hotels • Bed & Breakfasts
• Books • Baking/Desserts

Additionally, Carlisle’s fine lodging in its downtown allows visitors to take in not only Carlisle but surrounding historic and scenic areas. Some other attractions to people from outside our area are:

• Carlisle Car Shows • Area Civil War Sites
• Cumberland County Historical Society • Local/Area Museums • Dickinson College
• Famous Trout Streams
• US Army War College • Historic Colleges
• Dickinson School of Law

Some Allies of Carlisle
who also have a mutual interest in the health of our community are:
• Area Industries • Carlisle Productions
• Dickinson College
• Law School • US Army War College • Wal-Mart
• Lowes • Home Depot
