The Silver Skate Pop-Up Shop in Niantic


Room for a few more ornaments on your tree? We’ve discovered a cheerful pop-up to add to our list of favorite holiday shops. Located across the street from Smith’s Acres Gardens on Route 156, Silver Skate Pop Up (presented by one of our favorite spots for vintage, Past to Present Collectibles) is filled with any and all style of holiday decor and lots of nostalgia. Peruse the plentiful collections of vintage Santas, elves-on-the-shelves, and colorful wire trees. There’s a section devoted to Frida Kahlo ornaments, Sacred Hearts, Mercury Glass skulls and more Mexican folk art. Discover rows of nutcrackers, village houses, and ceramic Christmas trees. This place offers lots of cheer and definitely worth a masked visit. If you’d rather not shop in person, you can tune into Past to Present | On the Corner’s Instagram and call to order. They’ll ship for $5 or head over for a curbside pickup.

Here’s a video of the shop in action.
