Sen. Rob Kane on Tuesday (Sep. 17) visited Seymour-based antiques dealer Yesterday’s Luxuries to raise awareness about a new Connecticut law which establishes a statewide “Connecticut Antiques Trail.”

Sen. Kane, who was joined on the tour by Seymour First Selectman Kurt Miller, visited the 27 Bank Street business to chat with owner Rick Linehan and discuss the new law.

The legislation, which Sen. Kane sponsored, aims to promote antiques shops throughout the state with road signs, notices and web advertisements. Sen. Kane likens the “Connecticut Antiques Trail” campaign to the Connecticut Wine Trail, which promotes vineyards with road signs.

“Connecticut antiques dealers like Rick are extremely knowledgeable,” Sen. Kane said. “These unique small businesses attract visitors to our towns from far and wide, and this new law will help them get even more attention. We have a lot to be proud of, and this new law will help us get the word out about the excellent antiques dealers who are running businesses throughout Connecticut.”
