Williamsburg at Home Entrance   Leah Looking at Things

I recently spent a day exploring and shopping many of the unique stores that Williamsburg has to offer. I was in search of interesting home decor pieces to bring home and cherish for years to come. Williamsburg is not only a city filled with an abundance of history, spectacular food, and wonderful outdoor spaces, it is also home to a myriad of delightful shops filled with distinctive treasures you couldn’t find elsewhere. There is something for everyone, from antique furniture, locally-sourced artwork, handcrafted pottery, and so much more. Below, I’m sharing the charming stores I visited and a taste of what you can find at each.

1. A Touch of Earth

A Touch of Earth is a beautiful gallery filled with handmade porcelain, stoneware, woodworks, stained glass, artwork, and more. The shop features original work from regionally and nationally prominent American artists.

Throughout the store there is a variety of paintings, prints, serving bowls, vases, mugs, garden art, and jewelry. I purchased a bowl made from an extremely rare type of wood, as well as a hand-thrown porcelain bowl with metal spikes to place flowers. Both pieces are lovely additions to my home.

Located across from A Touch of Earth, Lightfoot Antique Mall and Country Store is the perfect second stop on your shopping trip. The store has 30 individual booths with vendors from across the state. There is a little bit of everything, from antique furniture, lamps, and mirrors, to vintage books, kitchenware, artwork, and tchotchkes. It is easy to get lost exploring the maze of booths, each filled with countless treasures.
