July 2020 Newsletter

It's hard to believe that this is our seventh newsletter of 2020. We've been keeping to ourselves during the troubles, doing a good business online and seeing a few visitors in the shop. We constantly remind ourselves of how fortunate we are to have such a circle of good friends and supportive customers.

While we're booked to fly to England on September 29, the continuing uncertainty surrounding the virus makes this trip seem more like a dream than a reality. We miss our English friends and hope that we'll be able to see them again before too long.  Time will tell.  

This month we're adding nearly two dozen pieces to our website, including English furniture and an American slant-front desk that we bought locally, several pieces of early English jewelry, and smalls from various parts of the world.

If you're in the mood for a little road trip, we've arranged pictures taken during two recent Sunday afternoon drives. Pippin and The Back Page are where you expect to find them. We hope you'll have a look.

This month's new listings

This English late 17th-century walnut gateleg table is only one of our new listings this month. Click on the table to see them all.

On and around the Mohawk Trail

Once a week we escape from the office to explore areas of Western Mass. and Southern Vermont unfamiliar to us. If you're so inclined, click the picture to join us on two of these Sunday drives along the exceptionally scenic Mohawk Trail.

Pippin's Page

Self-quarantining got you down??
You're not the only ones.

Click Pippin's nose for his views on the subject.

The Back Page

Choices for this month's Back Page ultimately boiled down to a few shots of us painting our house this summer or another travel picture. You'll probably be pleased that we chose the latter. Click HERE for the view from a scenic outlook on US Route 202 in Shutesbury.
In closing we offer these words, borrowed from a recent editorial by NY Times opinion columnist Thomas Friedman.

"Respect science,
             respect nature,
                          respect each other." 

Be well and stay safe.

John and Jan
