“You never know what you’ll find”: New Main Street business features items curated from storage units

Come back regularly, because you never know what you’ll find.

That’s the idea behind Troves of Treasure, opened by Frank and Deb Uthe in the former Main Street Market location. Frank and Deb fill the store with items they find in storage units purchased in auctions.

This means Troves of Treasure features used and some new items ranging from clothing to lawn equipment to furniture and appliances and everything in between.

Frank and Deb find auctions for the storage units throughout the country and go through them when they return to Hampton. Before they purchase the container, they are only allowed to see it with the front door of the unit open, which means anything beyond the first layer is a surprise.
