About Us

Weekend Kitchen is a small eclectic kitchen shop located along the Connecticut River in Essex CT.  Our shop is a mix of new and vintage kitchen and housewares.  We love things that are well made and well designed and therefore source products that are of the highest quality.  Sometimes this means that we carry a vintage piece instead of a modern item since its just plain better!   While we are a kitchen shop, we don't limit ourselves to just the kitchen so we also dabble in jewelry, some art, candles, scarves- pretty much anything that strikes our fancy.  Therefore, expect the unexpected!

Green Grape Press @ Weekend Kitchen is a bespoke letterpress company operated by owner Nancy Kirkiles-Smith.  Fulfilling her life-long dream of following in her mother’s foot steps into letterpress printing- Green Grape Press hand prints cards, stationery, invitations and ephemera on a 1880's Golding Official No. 4 tabletop press and Golding Pearl the old fashioned way- lovingly hand set and printed one piece at a time using the highest quality 100% cotton papers and inks.
