Spring Post-England Issue
Heading west from
Heathrow - bound for Boston
We've just returned from an
exciting buying trip to our favorite haunts in England. Our
shipment reached the U.S. in the wee smalls of last Saturday
and, after an unnecessary delay at U.S. Customs, arrived in
Conway this morning. Since we had recently acquired several
fine pieces from a Hampshire County home, we anticipated
buying only smalls, but once we began shopping, we were faced
with several outstanding, affordable pieces of early oak. We
couldn't say no. All of these new finds will be unveiled at
our Spring Opening. You'll find details below.
Our travels weren't all work,
though. We spent a delightful Spring day in London, and this
newsletter includes a few pictures of Kensington Gardens - as
reassurance that Spring still exists and might even make it to
the Northeast some day soon.
We hope you'll find a few
minutes to explore this newsletter and that many of you will
join us on the 30th.
Additional links to more than 11,000 pages and images will be
found in the Quick Links box on our website.

On the final weekend of our trip we took time out to enjoy a
beautiful, warm Saturday in London with Jan's daughter,
Lindsey, who was in town on business. We invite you to share a
few scenes of Kensington Gardens. Just click on the picture.
