After all the Amazon items have been chosen, ordered and sent and you have worn through your favorite shoes at the mall; there are treasures still available for those with ready money and exquisite taste. At Sotheby's auction houses in New York and London you will find extraordinary jewels, European modern home furnishings from the Jon Stryker collection, Tiffany light fixtures and vases. Hmmm, a beautifully printed i.o.u. for an Apple Watch (available in January 2015) would also be a winner, ( in case my husband is reading this). So, get at it, there is still time and treasures!
Tis the season to spread joy and the agents at Barrett Sotheby's International Realty have been doing that during the holiday season for 25 years, through their annual dollhouse raffle. The tickets are currently on sale and all proceeds benefit the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless. This may be the smallest house we sell every year, but it is one of the most important. Here's a sneak peak at this year's masterpiece - stop by our office at 33 Walden Street, Concord to see the real thing. Suggested donation: 10/$10, 3/$5, or $2 each. We will draw the winning ticket, Monday, December 22nd.
December 4th will mark the 5th annual Crucolo Cheese Parade, where The Concord Cheese Shop will welcome in a 400 lb. wheel of Crucolo cheese. The wheel, which is imported from the town of Scurelle in Trento, Italy, is and has been a product of the same family for the last 250 years. Still not impressed?, they are also the producers of the worlds largest salami!
Peter Lovis, longtime friend of both Barrett Sotheby's International Realty and the town of Concord, has been rolling out the red carpet in order to roll in the Crucolo cheese wheel for 5 years running. Anyone who has spent a moment with Peter can attest to the fact that, not only does he run an amazing cheese shop, but that he does so with an unmatched sense of passion. When the subject of Crucolo comes up however, his enthusiasm hits a level which is much to be admired. According to Peter, the Crucolo is a mild and creamy cheese most similar to an asiago fresco, but it's tasty bite at the end, is what brings everyone back for more. Crucolo makes an excellent melting cheese for fondue, grilled cheeses or even topping a tasty burger! While this wheel will weighs in at 400 lbs., the same family also produces a 1000 lb. wheel, which is only passed up, due to it not fitting through the door. On a side note: I've just begun taking apart my door frame. This is one of the kookiest and most delightful new traditions - music, horse-drawn cart, proclamations; believe me, you don't want to miss it!
