Annie Mame was my very first blog where I wrote about Connecticut’s people, places and things. Now it’s a boutique full of  one-of-a kind items that reflect the past whether they are vintage or new.

I love the idea of yesteryear from the 1920’s all the way up through mid-century (1950’s). The name Annie Mame named after “Auntie Mame” a motion picture released in 1958 starring Waterbury, Connecticut’s own, Rosalind Russell. I loved the concept so much I trademarked the name “Annie Mame.”

I hope you enjoy the shop, it’s another extension of who I am outside of my work as a long time television news anchor. I am first and foremost a story teller, now I also get to tell stories through Annie Mame. I will be carrying some unique items made by folks in Connecticut. Life IS a party, and you will find it here in many ways so “live, live, live!”

    Hi Ann,

    My name is Cameron and I am the Sales/Marketing Director for Reworx USA. We are a small company located in Watertown that focuses on sustainable home/office furnishing and decor. All of our pieces are custom made from locally sourced, reclaimed materials. On any given week, you can find us deconstructing 18th/19th century barns, factories, farms, or boat houses. The wood and metals that we reclaim from these structures are reworked into custom products designed to last for generations. We are also a salvage source for local artisans and designers, as we have many materials you can find nowhere else. The owner of my company is a big fan of you and your efforts to support local business. I am reaching out to explore options about writing an article about our company, or any other recommendations you may have for us. I look forward to speaking with you or answering any other questions you may have.
