A visit to SIMON PEARCE in Quechee, Vermont

Simon Pearce began in 1971, so it's a relatively 'new' concept in New England.  He actually began in Ireland and you can CLICK HERE to read more about the man, the concepts he believes in, the products, and the philosophy of life he shares with all.  For me, the glassware was lovely, but it was his style, his values, and his belief system that drew me to the shop.  Here, you can see glassblowing, oogle over the gorgeous tablescapes of displays throughout the store, and just be grateful for incredible artisans as those who work here.  I hope you enjoy!

at the main entrance

they even have linens

vases of every shape and size

the 'shine' and clarity of his glass

white on white.....always just right

simple, simple, simple

the entire store was SO getting me ready for Thanksgiving

some of their glass-blowing studios across the street
You're going to need to REMEMBER the following waterfall picture, because during our stay, there were torrential rains and you won't believe the difference- we went back to snap a picture of the falls during the rainstorm.

the waterfall directly behind the store from a shop window

The shop had interesting pumpkins all around
That was GREAT inspiration for ME to think about my own Thanksgiving table this year.....hmmmmmm
