Open House Gift Shop is celebrating 35 years of “gifting” Wilton and the surrounding communities by throwing a birthday bash beach party on Saturday, July 21 to coincide with Wilton’s Sidewalk Sales and Street Fair. To celebrate, the store will offer refreshments, music, giveaways and more.

Open House carries unique gifts and ladies clothing and accessories for all life’s occasions–baby and christening, first Holy communions, birthdays, graduations, engagement, wedding, anniversary and more! In addition select Men’s Vineyard Vines clothing, ties and boxers are also available.

Open House was established 35 years ago by Patricia Perry and two friends. In 2000 her son, Brian Perry, took over Open House when his mom passed away. He has kept Open House to honor her legacy and to continue to serve Wilton and the surrounding communities.

As a part of the community, Open House employs 14 part-time women and students. The students begin working at the store in 10th grade and usually come back to work throughout college breaks. Open House supports over 40 local charities and organizations in Wilton.

Open House is located at 9 Center St. in Wilton Center.
