Early final month I traveled to New Haven, Connecticut. It’;s residence to Yale University and like most school towns, New Haven has some great purchasing and areas to dine.
Yale is 1 of the country’;s oldest universities and is famous for it is Gothic architecture.
Picture-st Chapel Street is in which many of the shops and dining establishments are found…
Okay, time for purchasing! Wave Gallery is one of my favorite areas to shop in New Haven.
Right here, you’ll find artisan jewelry, a huge variety of homemade soaps, stunning cards, beautiful glass bowls, hand-blown glass paperweights and presents for the house.
Given that I visited the store before Chanukah their assortment of exclusive menorahs were on show. I want the brass colored bird menorah but genuinely don’;t want one more one.
I’;m a sucker for anything with typography so I loved the black and white ar2rk and those typography pillows on the left.
Excellent location to pick up a special hostess present…
Next we headed to Claire’;s for lunch–a vegetarian, natural and kosher restaurant.
In addition to very good food and drink, Claire’;s is notable for its extra-comfy “hippy” atmosphere. Support is semi-cafeteria fashion: line up, browse the blackboard menu and the pastries on display, spot your buy, and pay out.
The menu is mostly soups, sandwiches and Mexican. They also have a gluten-free menu which is ideal for me–the Enchiladas were yummy!
