Avoid the mall madness and take a trip up to the White Memorial Foundation in Litchfield sometime before Christmas.
(This is truly one of my favorite places). After you wander through the 4000 acres of woods and wetlands, you can browse their museum gift shop and support both the White Memorial Foundation and some of the local artists represented. Barbara has some really nice pieces offered for sale at the shop. So Support a local artist and the Nature Center at the same time:)!
