- Hey folks. Thanks again for involving
us in this year's Olde Fashioned Christmas. It was a fabulous
event and I received endless positive feedback from those
in the community.
We started the day with breakfast
at The Orchid, everything was so delicious!
We enjoyed browsing at some of the art / decor stores -- Terase
Art, Reinspired and Drewhaven, so many beautiful things and
at every shop we visited we were so impressed with how they
would recommend another store to us.
We had lunch at The Dam Pub and thoroughly enjoyed the great
pub fare and atmosphere.
Then it was time to shop again, yay!! This round we went to
the clothing shops--French Laundry, Decorso's, Furbelows,
Evolution for Men, Gaia Boutique, Terraware and Tigs, everyone
was so helpful and friendly. We also checked out Jessica's
Book Nook, The Diamond Studio and Birch and Benjamin.
In the late afternoon we had a coffee break at Ashanti Coffee,
very nice coffee and the server was nice enough to allow us
to hang out even though she was trying to close shop.
We ended the day at The Cheese Gallery with a delicious assortment
We had an amazing day and I've told many friends and family
members about so many of the shops in Thornbury. We will definitely
come back again!
I was visiting a few of Thornbury's
shops yesterday and was impressed by how beautifully enhanced
your main street is with all the blossoms and blooms.
You, and your fellow shop owners, should feel so proud of
the feeling of grace and charm you've created. The elegance
of the floral arrangements add a beautiful dynamic to the
Kudos, too, to the town for the lovely hanging baskets. The
red and white festoons relay a sense of upcoming celebration.
You clearly have a community that embraces and invests in
the practice of gracious hospitality.
