Yup! Just what frugal Wilton yuppies need while watching the family budget and counting those pennies. Nothing like a $310. massage to make us forget about our imminent mcmansion foreclosure.Or maybe a $95 dinner and a few half-priced drinks while scanning the employment ads. Only in Wilton can you find such great deals and the people who believe them.

You forgot to mention Something Special Vintage thrift shop located behind Our Lady of Fatima School...you can always find a treasure at a very reasonable price...if they don't have what you need, talk with Karen...she is a wealth of information and will dig it up for you!

Or the treasures to be found at the Turn Over Shop - always a purchase to be had, even if you're buying kids winter clothes for next season!
