Further down the same side of the street, Lindsay Cain hosts jewelry-making parties at Little Sparklers Design Studio, and Donna Simons runs Pound Ridge Organics, a food coop.
Across the street, Joan Silbersher has been selling oldies but goodies at Antiques & Tools of Business & Kitchen for more than 24 years. Next door, Susan Williamson recently opened Booksy Galore to sell new and used books; Amy Nevins sells women’s designer fashions on consignment at Juleigh’s Resale Couture; and Elinor Deutsch offers antiques and interior design services at Antiques & Interiors.
There is a lot of physical activity at Joanne Davis’s Curves fitness center, Lara Keidel’s FitCycle, Colette Dow’s Pound Ridge School of Dance, as well as some relaxation and primping at Sooja “Jane” Chang’s Plus Nail & Foot Spa. The newest woman-owned addition to town is The Kitchen Table, a cafe and wine bar, owned by longtime resident Daphne Everett.
