Where Do You Find That Stuff? - Part 4


Clearly the "Where Do You Find That Stuff?" posts are going to eclipse all others as I spend most of my time shopping, um, I mean looking for stuff to resell, of course!  Yesterday, Carmen and Ginger went on a little road trip out to the westernmost border of Connecticut to leave some items at a new retail location opening there this week.  (More info to come once open - it is a stone's throw from Manhattan and right on the leaf-peeping route!).  On our way out, we noticed this "Junk Shop" and made a point to stop by on the return trip.

A neat place, full of what you'd expect (furniture, lamps, glassware, papers, rusty old stuff, peeling paint) and some things you might not (some fun old fisher price toys, mid-century furniture and old Atari cartridges!)  For me, of course, the best unexpected find were these hats that were sort of sprinkled throughout the shop.  Funky mid-century finds for both men and women, most of these will appear in Carmen and Ginger's Etsy Shop in the next week or so! 

Just a lovely part of New England, if you are looking for a leaf-peeping drive this coming Columbus-Day weekend.  The shop is located along Route 202 in Canton, Connecticut.  Enjoy!

  1. My father grew up in part of Canton, CT -- Collinsville, to be exact. That area is a huge part of my childhood memories! -- grandma, great-aunt, great-grandma, ancestral farmhouse, cousins etc. It's gorgeous there. I need to go back and visit.

  3. Now the hats I will be looking out for, though I am always unsure to buy online and how to be sure they will fit and look right. :)

  4. Hi Eyeliah! I always give the size, if labeled, as well as measuring the band and letting buyers know if there is any stretch. To check your size, take a cloth tape measure and measure around your head right above your eyebrows. This is where the band should rest around your head and this is your measurement!

  5. Anne - that's great! It is a beautiful area, and, as you get a glimpse in the photos, the foliage is getting close to peaking, so beautiful!
