As my co-worker Ben Gammell pointed out in his recent blog about the CHS exhibit, Behind the Wheel: Vintage Automobile Safety Posters, “Automobile safety is no joke” – and neither is shopping!
At CHS we take your shopping experience VERY seriously and strive to provide the best in both product and customer service. As usual, the store is offering unique exhibition related products not only for vintage automobile enthusiasts, but also for just about anyone who loves to drive, especially along the miles of scenic Connecticut roads.
The Columbia line of automobiles, made by the Electric Vehicle Co. of Hartford, included vehicles for every purpose, but the manufacturer probably never envisioned their images on our magnets, key chains, and notepads!
Whether you’re passing through the state or a long time resident, you’ll love the Little Earth line of accessories. These recycled Connecticut license plate purses, photo albums, and CD cases make perfect gifts for your Connecticut hosts and are just the thing to hold your treasured Connecticut memories.
Still looking? We also have neck ties with vintage automobiles, antique classic car prints by Richard Welling, jewelry, and of course, books.
Start your engines! Remember shopping in our store helps keep our school tours, exhibits, and programs running!
