Our November 2023 Newsletter

Late Fall in Western Massachusetts

Happy Halloween! And thanks to everyone who visited us online at the Fall Fox Valley Show. It was a good weekend, with good sales and a couple of new customers. Thanks to CSADA and Marvin Getman for providing such a pleasant experience.

This weekend is our Fall Opening, with more than 70 new offerings drawn from this year's European buying trips and from several sources closer to home. The show will begin online at 10:00 a.m., and we'll open our doors at noon for in-person shoppers. We'll be open on Sunday, as well. When the show opens, we'll mail a link to newsletter subscribers and add a live link to our home page. Whether you shop on line or in person, we look forward to hearing from you.

We'll repeat our annual Gifting Sale in December, with nearly small 100 items we've set aside for the event. The sale will be both online and in person, and our shop will be open on Saturdays and Sundays of the first three weekends in December for in-person shopping. You'll find more details in our December Newsletter - in your inbox on November 30.

A Brief Holiday in Edinburgh - September 2023

Before traveling to Tuscany on our recent trip to Europe, we enjoyes a mini-break in Scotland's capitol. Edinburgh is a very interesting city, and we explored much of its best. Click the picture of the Governor's House above to look at some of the photos we took home with us.

Pippin's Page

Pippin continues to be well, and his monthly injection seems to be keeping his arthritis at bay. While his sight and hearing seem to be diminishing, his delight in being alive does not. Last week we caught a shot of him enjoying a mid-afternoon nap. Click his picture to see it.

The Back Page

We weren't expecting to hear music as we came out of St. Giles' Church in Edinburgh, but there it was, in the form of two young boys busking on the Royal Mile. We stopped to watch for a few minutes and caught a brief video of their skilled performance. Click on the picture for a listen.

Thanks for reading.
Our shop is open by chance or appointment. Just email or call.
Stay safe and well.
