Yesterday I visited Helen Goetz at Pantouf’s in Essex. If you’ve never seen her beautiful glass work, now’s the perfect time to swing by before she gets swarmed with visitors. This charming boutique situated in an historic country doctor’s office is located just north of the Essex Post Office and Premises architectural offices.

In addition to showing me her colorful glass serving platters and pitchers, Helen graciously toured me through the home, explaining how it had been configured and functioned when occupied by the Essex town doctor. Summer after summer Helen’s gardens attract local and visiting photographers, so remember to bring your camera when you go shopping at Pantouf’s!
