The Basket Shop is a lovely place to meander and shop and chat with the owners, Reed and Carol Hotchkiss, who have been running the place for many years. They have a beautiful selection of gifts and treats and my favorite candles, Mole Hollow. In the Carriage House next door, Carol has created a beautiful space with home goods, furniture, soaps, candles and linens. They've been in business for a long time and it's a great little place to take a break; they even have coffee.

Country Baskets is a fantastic Wharehouse if you are looking for things for your home. However we saw them first at trade show and thought they would be a good Wholesaler We were disappointed with the prices as we sell similar items cheaper in our shop. Not very good prices if you want to sell things on ,Not much discount if you want to buy in bulk. However as a Retailer they are very good They need to make up their mind Wholesale or retail

This old fashioned shop has been around for many years and is filled with all kinds of different styles of baskets both made in the USA and overseas. Prices range from modest to expensive. Amidst the array of baskets, you'll see hand dipped candles, a variety of gifts that do change throughout the year with the holidays, so it is always worth checking back in - and don't forget its sister shop: The Carriage Barn, which is next door. Inside The Carriage Barn are all sorts of items for the home, from handmade throws, to painted floor mats, hooked rugs, rag rugs, placemats, unusual and lovely candles, lampshades, hand milled soaps, lamps, furniture and more! Just walking in the door is worth the experience to feel the calm and see the beauty of this old remodeled barn - and its surroundings. Be sure to ask Carol or Reed Hotchkiss (the owners) about the history of both shops, how the barn came to be there, etc...and maybe Carol will show you her garden off the deck. A great place to buy things to furnish your home, pick up a gift and enjoy a quiet spot on the scenic part of route 7 going to or from the northwest corner of Connecticut or the Berkshires. Always interesting to stop by and see what's happening...and in the winter, you'll often find something hot to drink being offered in the Carriage Barn.
