Thus, there’s a revolving inventory of women’s clothing and shoes in a range of sizes and styles as well as a limited selection of men’s attire. Currently, the inventory of home furnishings is limited, but Cramer expects this aspect to grow.
The books for sale cover a full spectrum of genres, such as general fiction, mysteries, fantasy, horror and poetry.
“We carry children’s books, both contemporary and antiquarian. Our non-fiction sections cover a wide range of subject areas,” Cramer said.
Looking toward the future, Cramer said, “Ultimately I would like us to have our own product lines so we will have things you can’t get anywhere else.”
Though Champlain may take consignments, Cramer advised, they are very well supplied with books and for the time being are consigning only hard-cover mysteries and books published prior to 1920. Clothing and furniture consignments are handled by Kathryn Wilson of The Adirondack Attic. Consignment appointments in Westport are usually on Mondays.
Due to her affinity for science fiction coupled with a sense of humor, Cramer added an additional question to the perfunctory name and email request information: “Are you human?”
Champlain, located at 10 Champlain Avenue (Route 22), Westport, is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday with weekends to be announced.
