We are excited to kick off our residence at the Essex Barn this summer, showcasing:
- One-of-a-kind pieces
- Favorite handmade pieces from our friends around the world
- Local finds from makers in the area
We really have missed you and our in-person events, and we have over a year of samples and beautiful pieces that did not pass our rigorous quality control process, but are still all worthy of being loved.
This time off has made us think how we could do things differently.
We aim to create a curated space offering all our normal sample sale goodies and special finds, but also a place where we can chat, where shopping can be leisurely and thoughtful.
This idea of a residency in a summer home location feels like a wonderful solution.
There is so much to discover (even things you’ve never seen!), and we will be restocking throughout the summer. We’ll also be announcing some special events, so stay tuned.
If you want to be one of our first Summer Shop/Barn/Residence visitors, book your appointment today!
From kick-off on June 18 through the end of the month, shopping will be available by appointment only. This is to ensure a safe environment for both you and our staff, and have more time to get to know each other!.
So book an appointment, come hang out, and we can even help you plan a whole day trip or weekend! The North Shore of Massachusetts is truly magical this time of year.

Is there parking?
The barn is located in downtown Essex. There is no designated parking and the barn is next to a private residence so we kindly ask that you do not park in front of the building. Parking can be found along the main streets of Essex which are a short walk to the barn.
What happens if I can’t make my appointment?
Please keep in mind that we are staffing to meet appointment needs. For that reason we ask that you give us ample notice if you cannot make your scheduled time.
Is my appointment transferrable?
We're reserving this spot for you and appointments are non-transferrable at this time. Any vacancies we hope to offer back to the Misha & Puff community.
Are you planning on any other pop ups?
As of right now, we're only planning for our residency in Essex, MA this summer. We hope to do more in the future!
Are you taking virtual appointments?
As of right now, this is an in-person sale. Be sure to subscribe to our email list and follow us to be the first to know in case we open up to virtual appointments as well.
- Is there a waitlist?
How many people will be shopping at one time?
The barn capacity is 8 people, not including our staff. There may be up to 8 guests shopping at one time.
What will be at the sale?
Every day, we will be slowly releasing a wide range of unique and beautiful things throughout the entire summer. From first-quality production pieces, seconds and one-of-a-kinds, to archive pieces for children and adults, there will be something for everyone. We will also have a small selection of curated pieces from our friends over the years, and you may expect special pieces and fun surprises that will make the trip worth it, no matter when you visit.

All sale items are final as with our usual sample sale policies.
