Tree Lighting, I

Torrington, CT

Last Friday, hundreds of people gathered at Coe Park in Torrington, CT, for an evening of holiday season launches. First a tree lighting at the park, then everyone began to walk down Main Street as the police closed off vehicular traffic. Carolers gathered at several stops along the way until the crowd gathered for another tree lighting at a church next to the town hall. The high school band played, a live-creche display combined with more carols, and then the crowd moved on to yet another spot blocks farther along. It was a cold and very windy night with rain threatening, so I was quite surprised to see such a crowd turn out.

Pop-Up Sale

Washington Depot, CT

It seems there is a new retail idea called the Pop-up Sale, in which people utilize temporary sales venues. One example might be to show handicrafts for just a week in an otherwise unoccupied storefront. Here, a group of people are offering handmade apparel and antique or artisan-made jewelry for just one weekend in a space that is normally a fine-art gallery specializing in photography.
