The Litchfield Holiday Pop-Up Shop is a home full of treasures

LITCHFIELD – A new pop-up boutique has opened, filled to the brim with treasures just in time for donation season.

Christina Emery, Executive Director of Prime Time House in Torrington, and Prime Time House Chairman of the Board, Jeff Geddes, were joined by a large group of volunteers for the opening.

“There was a queue for us to open this morning,” said Emery, whose Prime Time House provides services to adults with disabilities in Torrington, including a clubhouse, jobs, education and activities. . “It’s been nonstop all day.”

State Representative David Wilson, R-Litchfield, and his wife, Lynn, donated the use of their 1829 home for the store this year. The nine-room home, next to Bantam Pizza, has hardwood floors and a fireplace below and a master bedroom and guest bedrooms above.

Each room is decorated with hundreds of donated treasures. There is an exhibit of cut glass, complete sets of porcelain, glassware, pottery and cookbooks. Holiday decorations fill the tables; the small corner displays are full of vases and bowls.

The walls are adorned with paintings and prints of all sizes, framed and ready to take home. Furniture is also for sale. In the dining room, a table is set for a holiday feast, including a cut glass punch bowl and matching mugs, a set of dinnerware, silverware, and placemats.

There are also many small personal gifts, such as jewelry, stationery, and baskets. Volunteers from area towns including Litchfield, Goshen, Morris and Torrington were there to wait for a steady stream of customers throughout the day.

The store will have new stock every day, Emery said. Prime Finds is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. until December 18 and is closed on Thanksgiving Day.

From December 19 to 31, the store will be open Monday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Christmas Eve is from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. the store is closed on Christmas day.
