Jeremiah Johnson Trading is a family owned and operated business, nestled in the historic Connecticut River Valley. Greg Schimetschek, and his son Dean, have spent their lives surrounded with the artifacts of our past and have developed a passion for all things old and interesting.
We pride ourselves in bringing you some of the finest, original antiques, and are always looking to buy or trade.

Jeremiah Johnson Trading has provided collectors across the globe with rare and unusual treasures, and has gained a reputation for quality service. Our vintage race cars and antique firearms have been featured on the Discovery Channel, Velocity, and the Travel Channel. We have had the pleasure of dealing with customers from all walks of life, including several TV and movie personalities who also collect! Many of our items have been featured in collections and museums across the world, and each piece has it's own story to tell. Two of our vintage drag cars were recently featured in Tommy Lee Byrd's book "Lost Drag Strips: Ghosts of Quarter Mile Past". To date, these are the last hot rods ever lined up on the starting line of the original Connecticut Dragway.
