Grey New York Grey New England bags you’ll still see us sporting in 2038

As women of our age, we know a thing or two about what we want in a bag! If we added up every purse we’ve bought and liked for barely one season…ugh, we could probably have bought a new house or two. We want a bag that will stand the test of time. One that can handle our multifaceted lives. Hello, Grey New York Grey New England. We love how classy and timeless you are. Make sure you check back here in 2038 – we’ll prove it!

NeJaime’s Wine & Spirits

‘Tis the season to stock your shelves with good cheer! Tralalalala! Where better to do this than with our friends at NeJaime’s Wine & Spirits in New Milford.

HVA Auction for the Environment 2018

The Housatonic Valley Association was founded in 1941 to protect the entire Housatonic River Watershed, stretching 2,000 square miles of land. To help fund this mighty endeavor, the HVA Auction for the Environment began 28 years ago. This fun event brings our generous community together to bid on incredible auction items, sip, nibble, schmooze, and in turn, help conserve this beautiful spot we call home!
