And many thanks for making 2019 an exceptional year for us. Our decision to restrict our regular shop opening times to our Spring and Fall shows appears to have been a good one, and the Sunday Splash has extended these events far beyond the weekend and the hills of Western Massachusetts. And between our website, Instagram, and our "open almost anytime by appointment" policy, we continue to meet new customers and continue face-to-face relationships with old friends.
Shows, on the other hand, have been somewhat less exciting, and we're re-thinking some of the few shows we've continued to do. At this moment, Spring Rhinebeck and Fall Wilmington are our sole planned outings in 2020. Once we know the date(s) for Wilmington, we'll put the finishing touches on our own schedule.
Meanwhile, the shipment containing the stock we found in England last fall has just arrived. It's all unpacked, and we've begun the long process of preparing things for our May show.
This first newsletter of the new year features a number of new listings and the annual January recounting of our New Year's Eve dinner for two. Pippin is featured in a micro-video, and The Back Page features a small group of accidental guests at our New Year's celebration. We've added a new feature to our jewelry pages: brief videos of the pieces in real life. We hope you enjoy it all.
