Coventry Arts and Antiques opened in the fall of 2011 and is owned and operated by Anne Burke. Anne was a former educator in the historic town of Coventry for 29 years. The shop was opened in memory of her daughter, Ellen, whom she lost in 2009. Ellen was an artist and the mission of the shop is to blend both art and antiques.
The shop supports local artist carrying cards by Andrea Wisnewski, beeswax candles from Swift Farms, and books by local authors. In addition, the store offers a wide variety of antiques, collectables, furniture, and decorative arts.
This historic building is located at 1140 Main Street in Coventry, Connecticut in the former Wellwood Store built in 1820.
