Love finding completely unique pieces to decorate your home? Look no further than Oldies Marketplace at the edge of downtown Newburyport.

Wander around the huge old barn and dig through piles of dusty antiques to find the perfect treasure. Oldies Marketplace is great for those that want to test out their eye for design, as the market is not curated like other area boutiques. Instead, create your own look from scratch!
