On our way from Vermont to Connecticut, we stopped at the King Arthur Flour Baker’s Store. I’ve been buying my chocolate from them for a while now and it was really fun to stop and find even more great baking tools. We found the hot pads we’ve been hunting for for years – oh happy day.
Then we went down the road to Simon Pearce. I had not heard of Simon Pearce before but this is a well-respected source for hand-blown glass in the northeast. These are photos of the outside of their home base. The waterfall you see generates much of the power that they use.
I loved the wear pattern on this rock…
I did try to resist, but I just didn’t do a good job of it. We bought one glass bowl, the smaller Corinth bowl. It’s going to look lovely on our dining room table. Steve thought so too – although later he said that really, as long as I loved it, that was good enough. I think our table without a bowl would suit him just fine. But we decided that if we managed to stimulate the economy a little bit on this trip that that would be OK so there you go.
