More than a dozen antiques shops are operating in the New River Gorge Region — a critical mass that’s attracting an increasing audience of antiquers to southern West Virginia.

According to Drema Wood, owner of D&K Collectibles, one of four antiques businesses operating in Fayetteville (including an antiques mall), the regional market is strong and growing stronger as word of the number of shops grows.

“People are discovering they can build a vacation around an antiquing in the New River Gorge region,” Wood said.

“Not only are there antiques shops, there are unique restaurants in Fayetteville, historic landmarks, and miles of hiking and biking trails through the national park lands.”
