Visiting "The Country Cottage", Hawley, Pennsylvania: Retro Collectibles And Decor For Your Home

Lot's Of Retro Surprises At "The Country Cottage", Hawley, Pennsylvania

The "Country Cottage" on Main Street in downtown Hawley, Pennsylvania has a great mixture of new and old treasures. Once a popular Multi-dealer antique store, "The Country Cottage" has converted to a large emporium featuring collectibles, jewelry, textiles, gifts, decorating accessories , cottage style furnishing and more.

Retro Collectibles At "The Country Cottage"

On a recent visit to this charming store located in Wayne County in the borough of Hawley, I spotted
plenty of kitchen collectibles and retro items. With a name llike "The Country Cottage", you wouldn't expect to find 50's funk....but I did!

Vintage Red And White Enamel Table

Of course I fell in love with the red and white enamel table and the padded vinyl chairs and stool which sat alongside the table.

If my car wasn't already packed with suitcases and other vacation "stuff' I would have taken the Retro table and chairs home with me. I am still thinking about them!

What I liked about "The Country Cottage" was how the owner mixed everything together coming up with a lot of surprises at every turn. One minute I would be enjoying wonderful handmade rugs and I would look up and find a 1950's lamp and table. Victorian items shared space with Shabby Chic and Mid-Century and the whole concoction just went together quite well.
