THE CUSTOM SHOP'S EXTREMELY TALENTED TEAM OF ARTISANS


Liz Goldberg has been in the design world for more than three decades! The CT native and long-time Glastonbury resident started her own interior design firm, Goldberg Design LLC, in 1988, just eight years after graduating from UConn. Liz LOVES helping people create spaces where they can live, relax, and spend time with family and friends. Shortly after launching her firm, she saw an opportunity to offer more to her clients and took over an upholstery business as an extension of her design services. That business is now known as The Custom Shop! Her incredibly talented team of artisans use their hands to transform pieces into gorgeous works of art for their clients. Her little shop on New London Turnpike is cozy and bright. She has everything you need there to pick out the right fabric or material to upgrade your space. In her spare time, Liz enjoys traveling to faraway places, where she has been able to enhance her design skills by being immersed in different cultures. Check out The Custom Shop website HERE for a full list of offerings or contact them for a complimentary consult.




NEW BUSINESS: THE APIARY COLLECTIVE CO.


Exciting news! Glastonbury's own Lisa DiBenedetto-owner of Nightingale Events, a wedding planning and design firm has opened a new business! Through her work, she recognized a need for flexible spaces. So this creative entrepreneur launched another new business...THE APIARY COLLECTIVE CO. It's essentially a designated space available for rent by the hour or day for branding, headshots, maternity, family, boudoir, or social media content creation. It can also be used for client meetings or co-working. It's located in Hartford and is truly STUNNING. Bright white space...vintage wood flooring...modern decor. The name: APIARY is a place where bees are kept, a collection of beehives. The bee is a symbol with ties close to Lisa's grandmother...someone who inspired her along the way. The space just feels good...as if you have been transported to an historic oasis. There will eventually be multiple locations with keyless entry and a seamless online booking process. Currently she is reviewing opportunities for locations in Glastonbury, Middletown and Manchester. Check out the Hartford space below or click HERE to book a time.

ODDS & ENDS...


*Sponsored by The Custom Shop



*The proposal to construct a delivery area on the west side of the current building at 400 Hebron Avenue in order to accommodate a Trader Joe's, has PASSED! That means the specialty grocery store will be coming to the space soon. We had initially heard during one of the TPZ meetings that they were aiming to OPEN this fall, but these things take time, so we will keep you posted!


*Also NEW to that building is Saybrook Home. During the Trader Joe's TPZ meeting, they announced the high-end furniture store has signed a lease for the space next to Trader Joe's. They have another location in Old Saybrook. Check them out on Insta for a look at some of their offerings!
