RI Selects: Special Shopping Opportunities
Friday, December 18 - Sunday, December 20 @ 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
The late, lamented Red Hook store Basic French, closed last summer, it’s owner Carol Neiley heeding an inner voice that whispered, “Move to France.” Fortunately, for those addicted to Basic French’s products of la vie quotidienne (everyday life), they are still available through the Basic French website. Now Carol is returning briefly to host a holiday sale in a pop-up store in her old neighborhood. She writes, “There are going to be some antiques and vintage linens but mostly new things that I have found this Fall and then of course all the old standbys—soap and toiletries, linens, linen water, etc. We are setting up a real store, right behind the Village Hall (lovely brick building) and directly across from the village parking lot (free!!). I will be there with all your favorite soaps from Savonnerie de Bormes, body lotions, linen waters and hundreds of new things I have shipped back over the last few months. Exquisite gift wrapping by Barb, naturally. So come and celebrate with us. I can’t wait to catch up with everyone! A bientot, Carol.”
Basic French Holiday Sale

Saturday, December 19 @ 9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
“Scarf” seems a woefully inadequate word: Knitted neckgear by SmARTWORKS is too exuberant for such a tame word, having a similar face-framing, uplifting effect on an ensemble that an Elizabethan ruff once did. These and other delightful knitted gift items will be available for sale on Saturday at this wholesaler’s open house at The Annex, adjacent to their Sheffield workrooms.
