Well, we are two weeks into our new venture, The Melamine Cup – Mid Century Modern & More. We have met some really neat people who collect the same nostalgic items from all over NH and MA. We have even been fortunate to have people purchasing our items from as far away as California and Virginia. Who could ask for more?
Our location, within the Monandock Unity Building on Knight Street in Jaffrey is for sure off the “beaten path”, but we are bound and determined to get the word out that we are here. We now have a great OPEN sign at the end of Knight Street and Route 124, and will soon have one right at the end of the parking lot as well.
During our off hours Jim and I continue to canvas New England finding those diamonds in the rough… Lots of mid century finds to be had if you look hard enough. Things you will find in the store range from a George Nelson Omni wall unit, Broyhill Brasilia piece, Stanley, Hallagan, Windsor, Pulaski, credenzas,bureaus, vintage diner tables/chairs, melamine, vintage Tupperware, Fireking, Fiestaware, barware such as Blendo, ice buckets, TONS of mid century lamps, fiberglass shades, vintage Levis jackets & leather jackets, wall art, pottery and so much more.
Wonder how far we travel when we go “picking”? From Manchester, Concord, Nashua, Hooksett, Derry, Portsmouth, Hillsborough, Keene, Brattleboro, Vt., Springfield, MA., Worcester, MA, Portland, ME…and on and on and on…
Come to Jaffrey and see just what we have found! Come for a day trip and enjoy lunch at Sunflowers Restaurant, The Monadnock Inn, The Woodbound Inn, JP Stevens or Kimball’s Restaurant (in the spring, summer and fall). The Monadnock Region is a wonderful place to come! Make The Melamine Cup your next destination.
