Join us on Sat., Sept. 17 for an exciting Revolutionary War Reenactment!
—–
The grounds of the Maple Lane Complex will serve as a living history encampment set up by the reenactors from the Third New York Regiment. The encampment will have tents and everything soldiers would need to live on as they traveled to join up with General Washington and his troops.
—–
The reenactors immerse themselves and their visitors in a well-researched experience of what it was like to spend the day in a military encampment. Visitors will experience 18th-century camp life, including demonstrations of firearms, military drills, and other daily tasks. The encampment will be open to visitors from 10am to 4pm.
—–
Admission is free. Donations gladly accepted.

Shopping for gently used items has become quite trendy.

Last weekend Martha Stewart stopped in at our Treasure Exchange as part of her trip to the North Fork. She was the guest of her publicist, Susan Magrino, who told us that she loves the Treasure Exchange herself and has found “many wonderful things there.”
—–
She said that Ms. Stewart enjoyed the shop and purchased a few items. (Insider note: Ms. Magrino said she thinks Martha purchased a Bunnykins plate and cup and saucer). We were happy to welcome them!
—–
The Treasure Exchange is open Thurs./Fri. from 10-4 and Sat. 11-3.

Would you ever guess that this odd looking piece of farm equipment was actually a very innovative horse hair clipper?
—–
The first clipping ‘machines’ were made at the turn of the century, before electric clippers were invented. One worker would crank the handle, which engaged a pinion that transmitted power to the flexible cord and the clippers at the end.
—–
The clippers revolutionized barn work, reducing the time to clip a horse substantially.
