Visiting J.P. Finishing Touches In Unionville, Connecticut : Great Antiques And Collectibles In A Former Railroad Depot

J.P. Finishing Touches: A Former Railroad Depot Transformed Into An Antique Shop Stuffed With Fresh Finds

Tucked away in Unioville, Connecticut which is part of Farmington in Connecticut's lovely Farmington Valley is J.P. Finishing Touches a former railroad depot transformed into an Antique and Collectibles shop.

The antiques and collectibles are always changing in this crammed two level smaller Multi-dealer store which offers a wide range of goodies fairly priced. This is not a prissy is a fun place to really hunt for the treasures.

Retro, Country, Vintage Colle
ctibles In A Former Railroad Depot

I visited the shop recently and found a collection of old beaded handbags as well as vintage shoes which were recently acquired from a Consignment shop that had closed. There are plenty of Retro kitchen collectibles at J.P. Finishing Touches as well as Country collectibles, toys, pottery, barware, vintage lamps, vanity items, ceramics, glassware and more. This is one of those shops that has a mixture of odds and ends and also some really nice collectibles buried under the STUFF which is everywhere.

A Great Porch With Great Bargains At J.P. Finishing Touches

The porch was also loaded with recent acquisitions such as two cottage style wash stands painted in light blue and mint green. They were thirty five dollars each...a true bargain!
I may go back and get the green one . I was so busy photographing the wonderful collectibles that I ran out of steam to load the wash stand into my car. (And it was freezing out).
