Keep it irie and go to Bench Shop! – Bench Shop is right near the frog bridge in Willimantic, if you go to or went to UConn or Eastern CT State University, you have been here, heard about it, or own something from here. This crunchy shop offers great original crafts ranging from tapestries and pipes to jewelery and clothing. There is also a stock of costume apparel for your party needs, because every cat needs a pair of hot pink fishnets and a wig to wear to that theme party tomarrow night. Bench Shop is on the strip of stores on Main St. in Willimantic, and since things are occasionally a little too hairy down in Willimantic, Bench shop has convinient public parking across the street. You will walk through an area that has a sign that says "no rollerblading, no skate boarding, no biking, no scootering" WILL SOME ONE PLEASE ADD "no having fun" Because really, how necessary is this sign. I didn't have a marker on me but I condone anyone's fixing of the sign. (And while your at it, go to Rocky Neck Beach and write "no having fun. no smiling." underneathe the "no kite flying" sign. C'mon...
If you find yourself listening to any 60/70's rock or any reggea or jam bands, you prolly will enjoy what the Bench shop has to offer. Check it out if you are in Willimantic.
p.s.- the roots,rock,reggea,redstripe,bobmarley painting that is used as the photo is a painting I did some odd years ago.. I think in 2006. If you are interested in a print or purchase of the origianal, get a hold of me via facebook.
