I love shopping local, and supporting area businesses. Mother's Day is a huge day in retail, and you can hear how important it is just by listening to every radio and tv commercial this week. Try to find one that's NOT about Mother's Day. One of my favorite places to shop for unique items is Elizabeth Richard in Woodbury. Art and Lori Greene are the owner operators, and they're two of the nicest people you will ever meet. Mrs. Large and I love browsing their fine selection of unique items, Lori and Art have a very refined sense of style and taste, and they always have something beautiful for you to take home.


This Saturday May 7th, Elizabeth Richard is putting on a Mother's Day event. It will feature a special Spring preview of Connecticut-made jewelry by Hazel + Harmony, some very cool one-of-a-kind teacup gardens from Tiny Gardens, and hundreds of gift ideas thoughtfully picked out for mom on her special day.

Elizabeth Richard is located at 20 Sherman Hill Road in Woodbury, right near the intersection of Rt. 6 and Sherman Hill. Stop by and take a peek, it's a great place to pick up something perfect for your mom for Mother's Day.
