Watch: New Stewart Flowers owner on why she picked Wilton

Mary Jones, the new owner of Stewart Flowers in Ridgefield, sits down with The Wilton Bulletin’s HAN Network before last weekend's Wilton Street Fair & Sidewalk Sales. The HAN Network was in Wilton Center on Thursday, July 16, for live broadcast previewing the annual street fair.

Jones talked with HAN's Kate Czaplinski and Donald Eng about why she decided to buy the shop in Wilton Center. Jones, the longtime owner of Rodier Flowers in Ridgefield, said she fell in love with the Wilton shop.

Stewart Flowers is at  76 Old Ridgefield Road. You can watch the video below:

The annual summer festival was presented by the Wilton Chamber of Commerce supported by retailers, restaurants, businesses, artisans and local organizations who pull out all the stops to showcase the community as a vibrant retail, service and dining destination. The Wilton Street Fair and Sidewalk Sale was sponsored by Fairfield County Bank.
The weather was iffy at times on Saturday and there was competition from sidewalk sales in other towns, but a respectable crowd turned out in Wilton. You can see some photos and more on the annual event at this link.

There were scores of vendors, exhibitors and lots of food. Many people made their way over to the library for the Local Author Showcase, attended by about two dozen area authors including Dick King, Shannon White, Kathy Caprino and Jack Cavanaugh from Wilton.
