NEW BRITAIN - Visitors to the Connecticut building at the Eastern States Exposition this fall will see a Little Poland shop doing business at one of the booths there.

For the first time, Quo Vadis – at 106 Broad St. – has a booth and is selling an assortment of items, including Christmas ornaments handmade in Poland.

“(It’s a way to) promote business and show how beautiful (the ornaments) are. Every single piece is different and it’s unique,” co-owner of Quo Vadis Krystyna Obara said.

Obara and her husband have owned the bookstore and gift shop since opening 20 years ago.

“Everybody, like my husband said, is coming to his (booth and saying) ‘Wow, it’s beautiful,’” Obara said.

She said the booth will be present for the whole 17-day duration of the The Big E.

“My husband is very happy he has a booth…He said everybody there is very nice,” Obara said.

The Big E continues at 1305 Memorial Ave., West Springfield, Mass., until Oct. 1.

Hours are Sunday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Regular gate admission is $15 for adults; $10 for children ages 6-12; and free for children 5 and under.
