The Pious Bird of Good Omen

is a boutique specializing in “Curated Objects for Home” - an eclectic collection of vintage furniture & accessories as well as a selection of artisanal objects from Connecticut artists.

We believe in the finely crafted objects of today as well as yesterday. A proud supporter of the local arts, we regularly feature local visual artists as well as carry several Connecticut made artisanal brands. Find out more on our Local Brands page.

A popular marginalia in Coleridge’s Rime of the Ancient Mariner, The Pious Bird of Good Omen is named in honor of the mythic albatross that leads its ship to safety.

The real price of everything,

what everything really costs to the man who wants to acquire it,

is the toil & trouble of acquiring it.

-Adam Smith

Vintage Italian Ceramic Owl Pitcher


A wise old owl sat on an oak

The more he saw the less he spoke

The less he spoke the more he heard

Why aren't we all like that wise old bird?
