The Curio Cottage Thrift Shop, a fundraising arm of the Westport Woman’s Club, celebrated it’s Grand Re-Opening on Sunday, May 5. Westport First Selectman Gordon Joseloff did the honors at the Ribbon Cutting with State Representatives Jonathan Steinberg and Gail LaVielle and State Senator Toni Boucher joining in the festivities.
Mary Lee Clayton, Westport Woman’s Club President welcomed everyone. “Since its doors opened 14 years ago, the Curio Cottage has been one of the Club’s best fundraising activities. Today we are celebrating the Cottages “facelift” as we look forward to many more years of offering wonderful bargains to the community. We also have to thank the many dedicated volunteers who have made the shop so successful.” First Selectman Joseloff snipped the ribbon and led onlookers inside to take a tour of the newly renovated shop. The group then explored the offerings at the Annual Plant Sale on the grounds of the Westport Woman’s Club.
Everyone is invited to come and browse the selection of good quality tabletop trappings, must-have collectibles, artwork, linens and more. With new merchandise arriving weekly, there are always new finds to be had. Visit the Cottage during regular shopping hours:
Monday: 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
