Today's accessories are tomorrow's antiques, meaning flea markets will one day be full of shoppers looking to decorate their space pods with primitive smart phones, mp3 players, and hover bicycles. Enjoy the past while we still can with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of vintage housewares and other antiques at Just A Second, located on North Main Street. This Groupon is not valid for new books.
Just A Second stocks its cozy cottage with carefully chosen antiques, flea-market treasures, and more. Window displays highlighting the seasonally shifting wares welcome shoppers into an emporium of vintage housewares, furniture, and accessories that can provide homes with a hint of class without having to hire an aristocratic ghost. Prepare for a feast by stocking up on elegant stainless-steel serving dishes from Japan and Denmark ($4.50+) or delicate coffee cups ($3+). Past items have included old-timey desk accessories, such as a 1970s-inspired letter holder ($3.50). On sunny days, the patio springs to life with an array of garden accessories, where guests can sip sun tea as they browse outdoor décor, potted herbs, and flower bouquets branching from collectible vases. Just A Second is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
