Retro fancy

When I was a kid, I thought this furniture store in Montclair, NJ was the epitome of fanciness. That when I achieved Ann-Margret baked bean adult status that I would shop for all my furniture here.

On a recent trip back with my friends Sarah (a NJ transplant) and Tom Pluck (NJ native and fellow blogger), the Hampton House sign remains as evocative as ever.

Tommy can hear you...
So is it worth taking a look in there? Seems too rich for my blood.

Of course I've never gone in...I've created a whole fantasy world about it! Here's their website: http://www.hamptonhousefurniture.net/

Seems like an Ethan Allen type place? But you live the closest, so please send us a report!

Very "Boardwalk Empire" signage; love your fantasy world, especially "Ann-Margret baked-bean status" which is a pretty hilarious flight of fancy in itself.
