ROAD TRIP

My husband, Ray, and I took a trip to Manchester, NH, to order a kitchen sink.  One of the dealers at the shop told me about a shop in Wilton, NH.  I looked online and saw that White Home Collections was my type of shop.  The minute we pulled up to it, I practically jumped out of the car before my husband stopped.  When I walked in, and told the owner that I came all the way from Massachusetts, and that I owned a shop in Wrentham, a lady who was standing at the counter yelled out, "The Wrentham Country Store"?  I couldn't believe it, Wanda, who is a dealer there, is also a customer at my store.  I was thrilled!!  What a small world.  Even though it is a bit of a ride, it is definitely well worth the trip.  Here are some pictures that I took while I was there.  There are outside carriage house rooms, three floors filled with goodies, and great garden stuff outside.  I know that I will go back, and also bring some of the shop girls with me. 











Of course, I bought some great things while I was there.  Here are some pictures of things now at the shop.  Enjoy.
