As we do every year at this time, New Preston folk will be ringing in the holiday season with bites, libations, and events all over town, and showing off our holiday windows, all ringed with fresh balsam garland (subtly lighted, of course).
Park your car once and enjoy the understated elegance (and just plain fun) of our charming, historic, and walkable Village.
Dana Schulman knows a little about high style. This Saturday she teams up with artist Linda Filley, whose over-the-top-gorgeous, over-sized, highly-stylized "shoes" (I've run out of hyphens) will be exhibited at DKS.
The works are made entirely from paper, both vintage and new -- from cardboard to wallpaper, old maps to sheet music -- Linda's creations are exacting in execution, stunning in presentation, and whimsical.
Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Linda now resides nearby in the Hudson Valley. Meet Linda and hear about her work from 1:00 to 4:00.
In anticipation of Saint Lucy’s Day, New Preston Kitchen Goods will showcase all things Scandinavian (and festive) for the holiday table. At 3:00 PM, Chef Marty will be demonstrating how to make the most perfect gingerbread waffles for Christmas morning.
Photographers Jen & Taylor Peden spent a month in the London kitchen of famed British chef Yotam Ottolenghi while shooting for SWEET.
Join Jen and Taylor as they spill secrets, sign copies, sample treats made with recipes from the book, and offer recommendations for holiday desserts.
Pink Champagne will be served.
Okay folks, get ready for some of the finest leather bags and accessories you'll see anywhere as Sal (Salvatore Anthony Salon) and John (The Owl Wine Bar) team up during the Winter Walk to present LEITZ LEATHER.
Eric & Sherry Leitz's gorgeous work comes out of their Washington (CT) studio. They don't have a shop (smart cookies), so don't miss the opportunity to see the collection all in one place.
John will be serving delicious mulled wine, and there's plenty of parking up in back of the building.
