“Robert Somaini began collecting as a child. You can find him amidst a horde of antiques from April 30th to October 30th. As an added bonus, the Vermont Flannel Company is located right across the street. I got a bunch of stuff from Robert, including my rocking chair. He's a really nice guy and loves to chat. I look forward to seeing him again. ”
