Offering over 24,000 square feet of antiques and collectibles presented by over 100 dealers, Bedford Street Antiques is Carlisle's premier antique market.
Bedford Street Antiques started in 2003 in a building that has a storied past of many uses. Originally constructed in 1852, the home of Bedford Street Antiques was originally used as a First Lutheran Church. Over two dozen Confederates attended church services there during the brief occupation of Carlisle by southern forces during July 1863 before heading to Gettysburg. After its use as a church, J. W. Plank, a dry goods merchant on nearby Hanover Street, purchased the building to be used as a Carlisle Manufactory, which made ready-to-wear dresses until the 1970s under the brand name Molly Pitcher Dresses. After the garmet factory closed, an auction house and flea market operated at the location for 30 years.
Bedford Street Antiques currently features two floors of large, open space where 100 dealers showcase everything from glassware to vintage clothing. It has received numerous "best of" awards for antique markets and is a local favorite for lovers of vintage, retro, and antique goods.
