Shopping >Song Birds Inc
Need to get your funky friend a gift for being so awesome?.
Songbirds is a perfect sized gift shop for the creativly inclined. It is great for older retired hippies and the youth that are part of the rock/regea/jam band scene as well as craftsmen(and women = ) and artists. This shop has something for everyone. When you walk in your eyes are going to explode so sport some shades until your ready to take it all in... The main shop has all the jewelery you could every dream of, handmade, turqouise in abundance, silver, beaded, hemp, and gemstones galore. Each piece is made with love and care by artists across the US. The price panges are huge! You can get a pair of hip earings for about as little as $8, or a nice sterling silver handmade turqouise cuff with exquisite attention to detail for around $50-75. (There is one I'd really like if you want to buy ME something = ) In between you will find a multitude of prices all appropriate to the piece of jewelery. Nothing is undersold or overpriced. They also have great jewelery sales occasionally. Before you go, call and see if one is going on or coming up so you can plan your trip!
Songbirds also has the best hosts! I wouldn't call them employees because they are just so kind and helpful, as well as interested in learning about their customers so as to be most helpful!
The store also has handmade gifts like wood carved boxes/drawers, puppets, toys for the little ones, hacky sacks (the really good, hard to find, ones too!!!), pouches, tapestries, posters, stickers, incense, t-shirts and sweatshirts and assorted handmade soaps and eco friendly hygeine products.
If you are over 18, check out the room on the right side of the store with the saloon style doors. You have to see the creative glass options as well as your garden variety pipes and other smokeshop goods. Watch your mouth though, unless you feel like getting kicked out. The glass here is by far one of the more creative concentrated collections in CT, as opposed to having a huge selection of your average glass, you will be enchanted by the clever ideas pulled from the molten sand. The prices are up there for the good stuff, and reasonable for your average glass. No one is going to try to pull one over on you. These prices are legit.
This store has so much to offer in a great gift shop sized space, perfect for any age and any person. The best part about Songbirds, if you live close and go there often, or are from far away and coming to new ground, the staff will make you feel like someone poured you a cup of matte tea, pulled out a sofa chair for you and offered to tell you a story or listen to yours. Seriously, the owner and two other workers are the kindest people I have met in a store of this genre. Usually you hear that about these little shops, and everyone I run into is nice, but Songbirds makes you feel like you not only found the coolest store, but also met one of the nicest persons in retail.
There is so much more that can be said about Songbirds. No matter what age, generation, musical interests, or personality, you will find something here that says "you need me." It is hard to walk away without racking up the credit card!!
Also, the goods change seasonally so make sure to check it out whenever you can!
