When was the last time you saw Dimestore era prices?
With gas prices “out of control” the staff at The Plantsville General Store has cooked up a special treat for “bonkers weekend”. Shoppers will be able to enter a drawing for a gas card worth $100.00. And everyone is treated to complimentary iced tea, coffee and butter cookies whenever they visit Elaine and Dave, owners of this antiques and collectibles haven in Central Connecticut
