About Our Name
The Plumed Serpent was established in Westport in 1970. Originally the store started as a Mexican antique shop and imported furniture and accessories from Mexico for the local clientele. The Plumed Serpent or Quetzalcoatl is an Aztec god related to the gods of wind – a cool name for a shop dealing with Mexican imports. Through the years, what the store carried changed but the name remained.
