What started off as a passion for all things vintage has turned into a lively business for these two millennials who call the Lakes Region home. The Quince and Quail, owned by Maxwell Corbett and Anthony Adamsky, first opened in 2015 in a small storefront in Ashland, NH, but before that they were selling their wares at antique shows around New England and hosting estate sales for clients in need. They also spent some time renting a storefront in Plymouth, NH, the town where they both went to college at Plymouth State University. Through a couple years of trial and error, as is common with any small business, they have been able to now settle into their newly renovated storefront at 44 Main St in Ashland, NH.
Maxwell explains that, "We opened The Quince And Quail with the idea of creating an experience and an environment for people. We wanted something that was more than just a store, we wanted something that had a story, something that you came into and became part of.” And you can find that story in any item you pick up in their shop. From the vintage clothing hanging on the iron pipe racks to the wooden shipping boxes that you see in every home décor post on Pinterest. What makes this store great is they show you how anyone, older or younger, can seamlessly incorporate an antique piece into their modern (or antique) home and make it look like it came right off an Apartment Therapy blog post.
The Quince and Quail is open every Thursday through Sunday, but be sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram @TheQuinceAndQuail for the latest updates and new finds.
