For antiquing in Lambertville, we like the shops on Union and Bridge streets. They run the gamut from rustic country to fine European classics. One of our favorites is The People's Store, a 40-shop antique cooperative, at the corner of Church and Union. It is Lambertville's oldest and largest affordable antique center. If you're like us, you won't leave empty-handed.
