Finally...a Crate and Barrel in Connecticut!

Great news!  Crate and Barrel is opening at Blue Back Square in West Hartford October 18th!  (Corner of South Main & Memorial Drive).  Sure beats driving to Boston or Providence!

I just love their clean lines and warm colors.  It's a home stager's dream!  Just think of all the shipping charges I'll save!

Can't tell you how jealous I am - plus, I miss West Hartofrd area.  I spent a lot of time there in college...do you get to Kirklands?  I have to make a field trip!  Julie

Susan,

Congrats and enjoy... When I 1st moved down-town in Chicago after college I furnished my Studio apartment from the Original Crate & Barrel on Wells Street in Chicago.  The clearance section was full of stuff from photo-shoots.  Many moons ago.... 1984. I was very young and very poor - lived on Sushi rice, Ramen noodles & shopped along Wells Street.

Thanks for the memories.

You've got me thinking...I'm going to plan a CT Stager's Luncheon the first week of November.  We'll all meet at C&B, then go to lunch!  All CT stagers welcome!  More to come on this idea...
