Local Makers Market

The Smithy Store will host a pop-up shop at the 2nd floor Loft Gallery of the store. The event will coincide with the town-wide annual ‘New Preston Winter Stroll’ holiday event. The pop-up or ‘Local Makers Market’ celebrates holiday gift giving, featuring local artisans and their unique, handcrafted products in our cozy, beautiful barn.

Customers can browse and purchase a wide variety of hand-crafted items including jewelry, woven goods, soaps, candles, reclaimed wood ornaments and decorations, leather goods, and other items created by Connecticut artisans.

Alongside the gift items, original paintings by Redding artist, Erin Nazzaro, will be on display, and on the lower level of the store, fine art photography by Judith Secco of Bantam.

The Smithy Store features locally grown produce and food products from within a 70-mile radius. The second floor of the barn serves as an art gallery and features rotating exhibits of artwork and photography.
