Can it really be Spring?
Well, we are into our third week of the new season, and yet I am compelled to keep the title of our original posting. The weather has turned unseasonably cold, and the poor daffodils are shivering. Still, the sun is shining, and the days are getting longer. These are a sure sign of warmer days to come!
Carol, Jane, and I have enjoyed welcoming you back, and look forward to seeing new and familiar faces in the coming weeks. We are also happy to welcome Privet House and Vol. 1 to New Preston. These wonderful shops just moved from Warren to their present location on East Shore Road, and will be a wonderful addition to the village.
Spring hours for The Smithy are Thursday and Friday, from 11:30 AM- 5:30 PM, and Saturday and Sunday, from 10:00 AM- 5:30 PM. Please be sure to stop in, warm yourself in front of our woodstove, and sample some of the delectable goodies offered in the store. We have new items arriving every week, and hope to continue this throughout the season.
We are very excited to continue building our unique assortment of local products and vendors, and share information about them with you. We recognize that none of this would be possible without the support and encouragement of our community, however, and thank you for shopping with us. Please do not hesitate to let us know how we can continue to improve your experience. If there is a product that you like but can't find in the store, that is made, grown, or raised within a 70-mile radius of New Preston, please let us know, and we will try to bring it in. Thank you for allowing us to serve you!
