Sweet Gifts and Home Decor at Where Memories Are Made, Old Saybrook


There is no shortage of gift shops on the Shoreline, but this sweet place (next to Tova’s Vintage), is worth a stop. Owner Lynn Hill has a vast retail resume, and it shows in this expertly merchandised shop.

After a corporate career, Lynn pivoted to a long-time passion project. I love that she’s got a workroom where she arranges her products for perfect placement in the store. You’ll find a vast inventory of extremely well-priced vases, charcuterie boards, handmade wreaths for all seasons (and so much more), and you’ll be snagging doubles to give one, keep one. Striking, too, are the decorated mantels (something I gave up on long ago), and Lynn will come to your house to festoon yours. I snapped up two adorable book boxes that perfectly contain (and hide) the pesky TV remotes.
