    One of the things we wanted to do with our winnings from The Amazing Race was to invest in the growth and preservation of Sharon Springs’ Main Street.

      Winter Sunlight While winter is not my favourite season – I reserve that designation for autumn – it ranks as second in my books. Call me Canadian, but I am a sucker for blankets of white, fluffy snow stretching across open fields, or heaped like giant scoops of ice cream on the branches and […]

      Chalk It Up To the Holidays I am really inspired by the décor at the Beekman 1802 Mercantile from a few years ago: the theme was Black Christmas.

      One of the most magical times to be in NYC is during the holidays when all of the stores unveil their holiday windows. Since we opened the Beekman 1802 Mercantile in Sharon Springs three years ago, we’ve tried to bring a little bit of that big city magic to our Main Street. This year’s […]
