If you have ever felt like something was missing from your life, there’s a good chance you’ll find it here....
Great Stuff by Paul is, well, a bunch of great stuff. It’s difficult to know where to start. English watering cans are piled high in a corner next to several Child’s Wash Stands (in assorted colors). We fell in love with some wire locker baskets (with hooks) just dreaming of the storage possibilities.
There are 2 locations; The huge warehouse of great stuff on 6th Street and a more boutique-like shop downtown, located at 10 N Carroll Street. Paul himself was at the warehouse when we stopped by on a recent Saturday and his enthusiasm is contagious. He very well may have the best job - ever. He travels the world over (China, England, France, Germany, and Holland, to name a few) seeking unique and wonderful items. Some are old; some are new. Frankly, it’s a bit overwhelming.
Fredrick is just about an hour Northwest of DC, and it's a great place to spend the day (even the MARC train goes there). We loved the antique stores and the renovated downtown section, but Paul’s is definitely one of the main attractions.
