Susan Williamson originally opened Booksy Galore as a used book shop in order to find homes for second-hand books. In the past three years, her inventory has expanded to include new books, as well, leading Williamson to more than double her Pound Ridge retail space. Customers travel long distances to shop her eclectic collection, to attend her book-related events, and to chat with Williamson about books.
Douglas Childs manages the Bedford True Value Hardware store with a quiet grace and generous demeanor. Since he is almost always seen in his trademark head-to-toe black, we decided to spice up his wardrobe with some color.
He is wearing an overcoat, black jeans, plum sweater, and blue dress shirt from the Joseph Abboud Collection at The Men’s Wearhouse, Stamford. His woven scarf is available at the Eclectic Collector in Katonah.
Ann Cloonan is the director of the Bedford Free Library in Bedford Village where she leads a dedicated and beloved staff. During her nine-year tenure, she has expanded programming and the 110-year-old collection to include electronic and downloadable options, as well as good, old-fashioned page turners.
Her ensemble, left, includes a reversible wool coat, top, pants, and scarf, all by Luisa Cerrano, and available at L’Armoire in New Canaan. Earrings by Bijou of Katonah; Bracelet by Jewel Corner in Bedford VIllage.
McKenna Ryser is the manager of The Kitchen Table in Pound Ridge. A South Salem native, she took the helm at the cozy Scotts Corner cafe in 2014.
