Destination Location: News 8 visits Seymour

Destination Locations

We’re heading to the banks of the Naugatuck River this morning. Our Destination Location is Seymour

We took your suggestions from our News 8 Facebook page and paid a visit to Bank Street, a quaint block lined with small businesses full of local pride unique gift ideas. 

“Bank Street is awesome… it’s a destination,” said Elizabeth Anderson, owner of Lizzie’s Corner. “We get people from all over Connecticut. The locals love it.”

“You could spend the whole day here, going in and out, just browsing or buying,” said Seymour native Elsie Baleski. 

In a world of online shopping, the shops on Seymour’s Bank Street are thriving. 

“The reason that people come here instead of choosing to shop online is that face-to-face and getting to know each other while they’re shopping,” said Jessica Boras of Tickled Pink. 

Lizzie’s Corner promotes Connecticut crafters, selling locally made soaps, jams, candies and more. 

“This way they get exposure all year round,” said Anderson, “they get to rotate their inventory, see what people like and really make a living out of it.”

Tickled Pink’s  “winter wonderland” of decorations has made it a destination for more than a decade.

“We’re actually known for our Christmas,” said Boras, “We do Christmas decorations, jewelry, candles, even the furniture is on sale here.” 

Boras said all the shops on Bank Street work together to make it a great place to visit. “It’s nice as a small business to have that community,” she added, “it’s definitely a nice community downtown here.”
