Since last month's newsletter -
Since late June we've exhibited at only one show - the
Tiverton Four Corners show in Rhode Island on July 4. Not only
did we enjoy strong sales, we also met several new customers
and were offered a few good pieces from the collection of two
dealers who are currently downsizing. At least for this year,
our decision to exhibit at the one-day Tiverton rather than
the more expensive Little Compton show in August appears to
have been a good one.
We're taking advantage of this summer to make a few
improvements in our home in Conway. The biggest job so far has
been the painting of the exterior and the restoration of a few
sections of exterior trim and parts of our front door, tasks
we expect to finish in the next few days. In between painting
days, we've moved to interior re-decorating projects
that have been on "to do" lists for a decade or so. Our plan
is to have the work completed well before winter, when we'll
move our office into the house, saving hundreds in office
As we approach our dotage, our re-decorating projects always
include an element of downsizing. We've emptied a pantry, and
many of the pieces that were housed therein are being offered
for sale in this newsletter, most in the two-figure range.
You'll find a link to them below.
It appears that the Massachusetts legislature will approve a
Tax Holiday Weekend for August 11 & 12. Once again, we're
planning a sale, at which we'll offer discounts of at least
20% on EVERYTHING in our shop - more on many individual items.
We'll publish more information in our website and in our
August Newsletter, scheduled for August 7th.
We hope you enjoy this month's Newsletter.
