all things local…{the emporium of litchfield}

a little while back, i expressed a desire to explore my ‘neighborhood’ a bit more, maybe find some interesting shops. well, i finally had a chance to do just that! it wasn’t the huge success  i had hoped it would be but i did find one really cool shop:

the emporium of litchfield

the emporium is a really funky yet upscale consignment shop located in a 2 story, older farmhouse (i love that porch!) during my visit, i saw some beautiful jewelry – vintage AND handcrafted, i found a really unique jacket i’m still considering, there was some awesome furnishings – a shabby chic style and the displays were so charming! each room of the house was utilized in displaying their goods.

i fell in love with this quilt made up of gorgeous, indian print fabrics. maybe pieces of saris?

starfish collage

of course the starfish caught my eye as well as the beautiful painting!

i realize my photojournalism skills need some work! i was about finished with my browsing before it occurred to me to take some photos and taking the photos made me feel a bit like i was doing something i shouldn’t. the shop owner & worker were both so nice, i should have just asked! and, of course, some of the photos i took were so horrible i couldn’t use them (yes, even worse than these!).

so don’t just take my word for it. if you’re local, go visit them! so much to see and you’d be hard-pressed not to find something that should go home with you :-)

have you visited anyplace new recently?
