Cash Mob at Something of Bev's in Milford CT

Each month the folks at REX Development, together with Cash Mob CT,  choose a town or city that is part of the 15 municipalities that make up the South Central Regional Council of Governments (SCRCOG) to descend on to be "Cash-Mobbed" 

Cash Mobbing is simple!  Anyone can do it!  All you need is a twenty dollar bill, a destination, and the desire to help support local business!  

Did you know that for every $20 that is spent at a local retailer, $13.60 will return to the community through taxes and payroll?  REX Development is doing their part to help local commerce and supports 15 towns and cities in Connecticut.  They need you to do your part too and support your local retailers!

Past winners have been RJ Julia Booksellers in Madison, Flutterby in Guilford, the Bethany Farm Market in Bethany, Sweet Cioccolata in Wallingford, and the Sweet Shoppe in East Haven, CT. 

If you're lucky enough to live in one of the 15 municipalities covered by REX - look for a  Cash Mob CT to come to your town soon! 

For the month of October, REX Development chose Milford CT, and the voters overwhelmingly selected Something of Bev's!

Something of Bev's  is located on the Boston Post Road in Milford, CT. Although they list themselves as a furniture and decorating store, Something of Bev's is all that...and so much more!

Owner Beverly Dennis has been in the retail business for 24 years! She is a long time Milford resident, moving to Milford, the Small Seaside City with a Big Heart, when she was two!  

Bev is the consummate hostess, and her retail business is an extension of herself.  Today she opened up her store to welcome the Cash Mobbers with an assortment of coffee and beverages, and dips and treats to eat.  

Bev, an elegant woman with eclectic taste, has a store that reflects her good eye for decorating.  Here you'll find antiques she's acquired from estate sales, and retail items from magazine and trade shows.  That's Bev, below, to the right.

When I mentioned to an old friend (who is also a Milford resident) that I would be at Something of Bev's, she quickly replied "I love that place!" 

Here's some of the wonderful items that can be found in the store!
Holiday Tea Towels
Window Decor
These would look so good on my window sill at home!
Roomy Showrooms

In addition, Bev features items made from local craftsman and artists.

 Look at these lovely iridescent seashells.  
Wouldn't they look beautiful on a seaside themed Christmas tree?

Please take a ride out to visit Bev and say Hi!  You won't be disappointed.

At Something of Bev's there is Something for Everyone!
