The Litchfield Holiday Popup Shop is a house full of treasures


LITCHFIELD – Just in time for the gift season, a new pop-up shop has opened that is filled to the brim with treasures.

Christina Emery, General Manager of Prime Time House in Torrington, and Prime Time House Chairman Jeff Geddes were accompanied by a large group of volunteers at the opening.

“There was a line waiting for our opening this morning,” said Emery, whose Prime Time House provides services for adults with disabilities in Torrington, including a clubhouse, employment, education and activities. “It was non-stop all day.”

State Representative David Wilson, R-Litchfield, and his wife Lynn donated the use of their 1829 home to the store this year. The nine room home, next to Bantam Pizza, has hardwood floors and a fireplace downstairs and a master bedroom and guest bedroom upstairs.

Each room is decorated with hundreds of donated treasures. There is an exhibition of cut glass, all china, glassware, pottery and cookbooks. Holiday decorations fill the tables; small corner displays are full of vases and bowls.

The walls are adorned with paintings and prints of all sizes, framed and ready to take away. Furniture is also sold. In the dining room, a table is set for a feast, including a cut punch and matching cups, dishes, cutlery and placemats.

There are also many smaller, personal gifts such as jewelry, stationery, and baskets. Volunteers from nearby cities like Litchfield, Goshen, Morris and Torrington waited for a steady stream of customers throughout the day.

The store will have new inventory every day, Emery said. Prime Finds is open Wednesday through Saturday 11am to 7pm through December 18 and is closed on Thanksgiving Day.

From December 19 to 31, the shop is open Monday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Christmas Eve is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. the shop is closed on Christmas Day.

All sales benefit Prime Time House’s mission. Information can be found at
