    About the Store

    At Hope & Stetson we believe in hand written stationary and pausing in the chaos of life to hold a door, say hello or simply share a smile.  We appreciate a holiday tradition and are grateful for slow Sunday drives.   We long for brown paper packages tied up with string and believe small gifts are the best gifts.  We are a small family owned boutique that curates a store filled with happy purchases.  We carry items that will warm your soul or the soul of a friend and hopefully will earn the title of “go to” piece in anyone's wardrobe.  Life is busy and sometimes we all need a moment to sharpen the things that matter and a place where worries and stresses don’t weigh heavy upon us.  We are a store filled with memories of simpler times and cozy knits, soft tees and easy affordable pieces and gifts to remind us to take pause and be present & happy.  We hope you will visit us in beautiful West Hartford Connecticut and take a moment to enjoy our happy place. 

    About Us

    Emma, Mike, and their three children, Bailey, Lia, and Jordan relocated to West Hartford ten years ago from LA. 
    West Hartford felt like home to them right away. They enjoyed the changing seasons, the charm of the town, and all West Hartford has to offer, including Hope & Stetson which has been a shopping destination for the Muchin family since it opened. When the opportunity to own the store became an option, it just felt right. 

    Their eldest daughter, Bailey, has since married and settled in her own place in West Hartford with her husbandScott. She has a degree from UConn in Special Education and is now in law school at Quinnipiac University

    Lia loves to swim and has been competing in the Special Olympics since they moved into the community. She also enjoys bowling, basketball and knitting! You can find her beautiful scarves at the store (: 

    Jordan, their youngest, is a senior at ECSU majoring in Business. He pitched for the school baseball team (Go Warriors!), where he was cheered on by his family and super supportive girlfriend, Cierra. 

    And .... we can’t forget about Avalon, their rescue dog, who became a huge fan of Hope & Stetson when she realized there were dog treats outside waiting for her on her walks through the Center.  She always wanted to go shopping at Hope & Stetson!
