If you’re into antiques, April can’t come soon enough. A new website will be launched showcasing the antique shops Connecticut has to offer.

The Connecticut Antiques Trail is in good company.

There’s the Connecticut Wine Trail, the Connecticut Beer Trail and the Connecticut Chocolate Trail.

The beer, chocolate and wine trails have something the antiques trail doesn’t — a website that lists all the stops in the state.

The Connecticut Office of Tourism is hoping that will all change in April, when it launches a new statewide Connecticut Antiques Trail website.

“Not only does Connecticut have a rich history in antiquing, but there is also tremendous interest, knowledge and expertise in the American and international antiques industries here,” said Randy Fiveash, director of the Connecticut Office of Tourism in a press release. “We look forward to partnering with Connecticut antiques dealers, auction houses and key folks in this industry to develop a robust and informative Connecticut Antiques Trail for our visitors and residents.”

But first, the CT Office of Tourism needs help from Connecticut’s antique dealers and auction houses, to help make the site robust and comprehensive.

Qualifying antiques dealers and auction houses receive a free business listing on the website. The Antiques Trail website will be a part of Visit Connecticut, the state’s official tourism website.

If you’re an antiques dealer with questions on the website and participating in the directory, contact Jean Hebert at Jean.Hebert@ct.gov or (860) 256-2739.

The deadline for submitting information is March 10.

For all those antique shoppers out there, where’s your favorite local place to go treasure hunting?
