our holiday event

we had a beautiful sunny day on long island for our 3rd annual holiday event and lots of old friends and new friends came by to visit and shop ...we had stocking stuffers from $1-10, hostess gifts under $25, great gift ideas for the gardener and chef...
the white shop was the first stop filled with a vintage college of ironstone, paperwhites and The Laundress household collection + paperwhite candles

vintage linens, birdhouses, teasets were also in the winter white shop inspired by Holiday with Matthew Mead who used this old chicken coop and turned it into a winter wonderland with beautiful decorations and tea sets

Matthew Mead and Jane Cumberbatch were our celebrity guests this time, signing their new books and meeting their fans... Jane sold all her books by lunchtime! You can still buy her Pure Style book series on Amazon as well as her new one called Easy Recipes which she has kindly adapted with American measurements

spicy pumpkin soup menu...proceeds from our soup kitchen went to buy bulbs to plant in the historic district ...can't wait to see all the white daffodils blooming this spring along main street!

outdoor table with firepit and blankets... a good spot to enjoy soup and cookies made by michael jones...spiced pumpkin (a theme here) and walnut shortbread...hope all who came had a great time, and if you couldn't make it, check out our online shop and we'll be posting more photos of the event and the new general store gift suggestions for the season!
