Vintage Camont

Welcome to our newest addition at Camont- a real live shop!

Wedged into the space between the Teaching Kitchen and the Laundry, we showcase our favorite vintage finds offering you a chance to see them in situ here at Camont. Hear are some of our favorite tools of the trade—the copper and iron pans in which we cook on the fire; the heavy terracotta cassoles which cradle bubbling cassoulets. A lovely embroidered tea towel might inspire a bread basket full of just baked treats. The sparkling glass jelly jars, each one different, become bouquet vases for guest rooms and holders of other treasures. The butcher cleavers are the iconic image of another time when meat was processed at home kitchens as well as village shops. And the new addition of posters and prints by our favorite photographer Tim Clinch is our way of putting a little bit of Camont on your walls.

The Camont Table

As captured in this Winter poster above by Tim Clinch, the table at Camont is laden with old and new. The iconographic Not Freres Poterie cassoles and ochre and green bowls grace the bare wood table. I might use well-worn silver pieces to dish out our family style servings, lay hand-embroidered napkins at each plate, or choose a few special quirky vintage pieces to decorate the table. Take a look here for some of our favorites! This poster is one of a series of seasonal views of life at Camont- from the just picked Spring garden to the windfall abundance of Autumn table.

The Kitchen at Camont

Vintage graters, whisks, copper bowls, cast iron pots, canisters, and a marvelous scale help define my look.

I love the slightly worn, imperfect tools I hang on old butcher’s racks as well as the everyday linen tea towels always at hand. Being a bit ‘more is more’ sort of person, I can’t say no to jsut one more jelly jar, or another batch of
