Merchants have planned a series of exciting events for New Preston’s annual Winter Walk on Saturday, December 7 from 1-4 pm.
Special guests will be on hand while musicians stroll throughout the village spreading holiday cheer. The shops will be filled with sophisticated collections of gifts, antiques, clothing, home and kitchen goods, seasonal plants, holiday decorations, local foods, and more. A percentage of sales will be donated to the Washington/Warren Food Bank. Here’s a peek at what the merchants have planned for the event:
Mixologist Riley Lumbra will be whipping up festive cocktails at DK Schulman and Santa will be handing out candy canes at Sweets. John Truex (of Lambertson Truex) will be at Privet Live offering exclusive monograms for your purchases. Privet House is taking the word ‘celebration’ to a new level with a curated collection of linens, dishware, and glasses for the holiday table.
New Preston Kitchen Goods will have a Christmas shop where you can find beautiful and unique tree ornaments. J. Seitz and Co. will host author and acclaimed NYC chef Amy Chaplin who will be signing her new book, “Whole Food Cooking Every Day”. Pergola will present tablescapes of natural and preserved botanicals to be enjoyed while sipping eggnog and seasonal scones.
Across the street, Dawn Hill Antiques will host noted potter Frances Palmer who will have armloads of seasonal flowers ready to create holiday arrangements in her amazing pottery.
Nine Main will offer Whit’s hot doughnut holes along with Julie’s very special apple cider. The Smithy keeps it local with chefs Luis and Robert from Arcadia Kitchen offering samples of their winter signature dish Caldo Gallego. Sal Anthony will be welcoming guests with a glass of prosecco in his new salon. And as the sun begins to set, warm up by the fire at The Owl and enjoy a cup of steaming hot chocolate from their hot chocolate bar.
