Recently, we performed an original story written by Sherrill in the sunken garden at Narragansett Historical Society in Templeton Massachusetts. The story entitled “Elizabeth’s Quilt or the Wedding Gift” taught lessons about history and the importance of community. It addressed the value of intergenerational learning where elders and children learn important life lessons from each other. As Sheila performed the story, Sherrill involved audience members, curating the story with antiques from their collection and their shop, Robins in the Trundle Bed. Sherrill called children to the stage area where they donned antique hats and clothing, becoming the characters in the story. The audience participated in the story by wearing the antique clothing and accessories, smelling herbs and examining the various antiques that illustrated the story. We took photographs of the event to share with you!

While others have been off to the beach, we have been scouring the countryside searching for new items for the shop. We have found some wonderful treasures. Nothing speaks of summer like...an English white ironstone pitcher and ewer, a lamb garden statue, ocean fans and many other whimsical items that have made or are making their way into our shop. When you are wending your way through New England, please visit us at 36 Baldwinville Road, Templeton, Massachusetts to see all our recent summer finds!
