Visiting La Vita Vintage Collectibles, Plantsville, CT

Ooh la la ..... La Vita Vintage Is Stuffed With Vintage

La Vita Vintage is a small shop on South Main St. in Plantsville, CT. which thinks it it is big shop. My goodness there is so much STUFF packed into this former home now transformed into a store that you will really have a ball digging through the goodies.
Plantsville Is A Charming Old Town

La Vita Vintage sits next to a town landmark, the former Plantsville General Store, now Paula's Unique Consignment. Plantsville has seen its ups and downs, going through phases of lots of antique and vintage shops to some dryer periods. But La Vita Vintage is bringing lots of energy back into town with a loyal shop owner who loves this quaint old town and is bringing on the pizazz.

nd New Clothing, Jewelry, Vanity , Housewares And More

Every time I visit "La Vita Vintage", I wonder how on earth this gal gets all the furniture, vintage clothing, knick knacks, kitchenwares , toys, vanity items etc into one shop. I like the backroom at  , La Vita Vintage that is where the kitchen collectibles are. You will find new and old housewares packed into the kitchen section.

Think Consignment And More.......

I want to be perfectly clear about what you will find when you visit this fun will find anything and everything. It is not a fancy boutique, it is a whimsical second hand store with plenty of buried treasures.

Funny ending to my visit...... when I was leaving she handed me a flyer which invited me to think of her store when I wanted to sell off an estate? But where.... but how.......there is not an inch left to put anything?
