NEWSLETTER - November 13, 2012

 

Fall Opening 2012
 
Last weekend we held our 2012 Fall Opening here in our Conway shop. The weekend began with a large crowd of eager shoppers at the door and continued through Monday. The first few hours of the show were typically frenetic, and the pace on Sunday slowed enough to permit relaxed conversation with good company. The sale extended into Monday, when a few shoppers who had made appointments stopped in to visit and shop. We had our share of locals, as well as many from other parts of New England and New York. This year's long distance award goes to an old friend who came from Iowa.

As usual, the shop was filled with new acquisitions - more than 200 in all. Now that the dust has settled, we're adding the best of what's still available to our website. We hope that you'll use the links below to have a look.

This Month's New Listings

Occasionally, one of our readers will contact us to express their disappointment at being unable to attend our semi-annual openings. While we'd like to put the openings on the Internet, there's really no way to do it without diluting the excitement generated by the buyers who make the trip to Conway. We feel strongly that this excitement is what makes all the difference, and we guard it carefully.

 
But now that the weekend is past, we'd like to share a few photos of the shop as it was when our guests arrived on Saturday morning. The new listings in this newsletter are only a few of the pieces still in the shop, so if you see something of interest in any of the pictures, please don't hesitate to inquire.

The Back Page
One of the things that makes our openings seem special is Jan's attention to details of style and presentation. One of our floral arrangements this time was sent by her daughter Lindsey, who was out of the country but wanted to be part of the celebration. Click here for a look. 

We hope you've enjoyed this month's newsletter. Thanks for being a subscriber.
