For years Connie has held a passion for classic vintage and also an eye to curate an outstanding collection out of a crowded stage of estate sales, second hand shops and consignment offerings.


In 2010 her passion had its first outlet in a small venue at 177 Main Street, Great Barrington as the original and purely vintage griffin.


The shop soon moved to 179 Main Street and added design forward new offerings and a gallery to showcase the best of Berkshire artists and photographers.


In May 2015 the opportunity to move to an entirely new location at 165 Main Street came and this larger open space flooded with light presented the chance to expand popular lines and to add new found items in clothing, furniture, vintage, books, toys and so much more "fun".

Now we are at the center of town with our 2018 move to 47 Railroad Street, the brand new re-design of shops, restaurant and apartments.

Years in my mind...
