or the "Gris" as the locals call it has been in operation since
As a youngen I worked at the Gris and have fond memories
Shop across the street that is owned by the Gris
and serves coffee and pastries
oh right back to Essex!!
we're still across the street from the Gris.
The Christmas Barn tucked away in the back.
It's been there for years.
Fun shop with every kind of Christmas decoration you can think of.
The window display of the Griswold Inn shop
You know me by now I can't go anywhere without photographing
Every preppy town has to have a Talbots!!!
It's really not as preppy anymore. I looked at the website and it's more business wear.
There used to be a Lilly Pulitzer in town too.
I shouldn't judge........... I wore that kind of thing in my 20's.
My boyfriend at the time was an Essex prep and somehow I thought I needed to
play the part....at least with my clothes.
Isn't that a cute name?
The front facade is adorable and so well kept up.
You know me I had to take pictures of the flowers that were
spilling out over the stonewalls.
I hope you enjoyed the Essex tour.
Sorry it took me so long to show you this last post.
Time just seems to be escaping me lately.
I always think that after the Spring rush that things will all fall into place
and I'll have all this free time but that never seems to happen.
We have been trying to catch up with friends that we've been neglecting for months.
We have some pretty patient friends that know we have limited time....
well, like most of us I'm sure.
Hope you've all been enjoying the Summer!!!!
