New Summer Hours ~ Extended hours Saturday, weekdays close early.
The antique shop's creative director, buyer, and seeker of "vintage things"...may be overheard in the shop singing along to 70's rock.
Melinda's partner in love and "crime," fixer of antiques and all things vintage...may be seen cruising around in the Circa TRANSIT van.
Circa's mascot and lover of all people, great and small...may be seen greeting customers or snoozing in the antique shop.
My mother was an original “American Picker” back in the early 70’s when my sister and I were just kids growing up in eastern Connecticut. Back then, my mom, Shirley, would travel the countryside "picking" in search of the perfect “find," sometimes by climbing through a broken window of an abandoned house! All of which was completely sketchy, but, hey, it was the 70’s. Seems crazy, I know, but those stories and my mother’s love of antiques are what planted the seeds of thought for this space.
So come along for the ride, as I trip down memory lane in search of the perfect “find." Along the way, I promise to share my knowledge and love of antiques as well as assist you with finding that unique piece or help guide you with the selling of your loved one’s estate or special collection.
Hope to see you soon,
Shirley and her girls, Melinda and Elizabeth, #circa 1972.
