Why Should I Go? Everywhere you look are lovely surprises — a tea set from the 1920s, a cylinder from a turn-of-the-century Edison phonograph, a Wallace Nutting hand-colored photograph, tiny books from the 1940s and trinkets that would have been found in bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens and lounges from the first half of last century. This shop is full of distinctive hard-to-find treasures.
The best way to describe this shop? If your granny and HER mother had good taste and managed to keep, in a collection of big boxes in the attic, many of their kitchen items, reading materials, and other household goods, and you opened all those boxes and placed them in a very cute little store… that’s what Out of the Past is like.
Insider Tip: You never know what you’re going to discover here. So even if you don’t find something that tickles your fancy on one particular visit, come back again. Off season, Out of the Past is open on weekends, so call first to check. You can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
