Am I the only
one who had never set foot in Olde Mistick Village? That troublesome “e” at the end of Olde had me convinced it was a collection of ye olde shoppes offering up fudge and fried dough. There’s plenty of that, of course, but in between, I found some fascinating and entirely unique stores and spent a sunny afternoon exploring. There was more to write about than fits on my list, so don’t miss our friends at Southern Exposure
, unusual nut-based jewelry at Vegetable Ivory
, a shop brimming with all things Scandinavian, including an astonishing array of clogs and this curious Dala Horse blanket that came home with me! For lunch? Head to the geniuses at Bleu Squid Bakery and Grilled Cheese Cafe
for the grown-up grilled cheese made with artisanal ingredients on Fabled Foods bread and a cupcake (40 rotating flavors!). What more could a girl want?
