I made it over to the higher elevations before the Winter closings. In many of these wonderful Mountain Retreat villages, businesses close between Thanksgiving and Easter. One of my adored haunts is a horrid generic building which houses wonderous things. The owner is as charming as her objects. She spends the off season here, stockpiling wonderful things in her Paris warehouse to send here for our next "season". She has a great mixture of formal, informal, urban and rural, precious pieces with history and architectural salvage from the march of "progress". Thought I would share with my blogger friends.
