Prime Time House gave me a purpose in life. It gave me a reason for functioning, a reason for getting up every day. Before Prime Time House, I would stay at home, sleep, and do nothing, but now I have a purpose. I have a reason to get out of bed every day. I have friends. I have people who I need.
PRIME FINDS Pop-Up Store
PRIME FINDS Home for the Holidays:
A true partnership of time, talent, and treasure! We have begun to organize PRIME FINDS Home for the Holidays 2022. Collectively investing hundreds of hours to coordinate, this year’s committee is comprised of the following:
- Susan McGowan & Kathy Minck, Co-Chairs
- Judi Armstrong
- Christina Emery
- Jeff Geddes
- Luce Jakimetz
- Pucci McGill
- Jackie Miller
- Susan Rea
- Nancy Rogers
- Kathi Weinstein
PRIME FINDS Home for the Holidays, now in its seventh year, is a pop-up store located in the greater Litchfield area. 100% of the proceeds benefit the mental health programs at Prime Time House. Every purchase is tax-deductible and brings the gift of hope to those suffering from mental illness who come to us for help. The shop is widely known for its attractively displayed, high quality used furniture, home and holiday goods, sold at great prices. It is fully staffed by volunteers with all items donated by generous supporters. Not only has it created awareness about Prime Time House but it has attracted hundreds of new supporters who have donated goods, time, services, and funds.
Announcing Our 2022 Location:
Prime Time House is pleased to announce that this year’s PRIME FINDS Home for the Holidays pop-up store will be held at:
Route 118 (East Street)
“We are grateful for the generosity of Father Don LaSalle and the opportunity to partner with this well-known community destination for our upcoming pop-up store.” said Christina Emery, Executive Director. “The location offers a blank canvas, allowing the full creative genius of our pop-up committee to create a warm and inviting shopping experience for our supporters.”
Lourdes offers great accessibility, ample parking, and is minutes from the hub of Litchfield commerce. Listed on the Connecticut Tourism Office website, the site is a replica of the Grotto Lourdes in France, built with local fieldstone in a natural rock ledge by two Montfort Brothers, in 1958. Since then, it has welcomed individuals and groups for contemplative peace, prayer, and reflection. As a testament to their dedication to the community, Lourdes hosts the Blessings of the Bikes in May, the Blessings of the Animals in October, and its annual Living Nativity in December.

No matter what your talents are or how many hours you can offer, we could use your help! The pop-up store is largely successful because of the dedication of volunteers who give of their time and talents during the busy holiday season. Volunteers wear many hats, including cashing out customers, receiving donations, pricing goods, re-stocking shelves, greeting shoppers, and helping them with purchases.

You will be contacted by Jackie Miller who graciously donates her time to organize the volunteer schedule. Having done so since the inception of the store, Jackie is a prime example of how volunteers make PRIME FINDS a success!
