Caskata Ad for Gris

Anchors Aweigh Indeed! We have collaborated with Caskata and artist Shawn Laughlin, creators of exquisite handcrafted products for the home, to introduce an exclusive line designed expressly for The Griswold Inn Store! The line of tableware, serveware and decorative pieces includes platters, mugs, bowls, dipping dishes, canapes, teapots, bud vases...We offer these ceramics in classic blue and white - microwave and dishwasher safe - and a gold and platinum-plated style which is food safe but requires handwashing. Stunning served up either way!

Saturday, August 27th ~ Songwriter/Folksinger Larry Kaplan

Larry Kaplan (2)  Songs for an August Moon

Singer, songwriter and instrumentalist, this talented Connecticut musician has been at his craft for many years. Kaplan's music has been described as "touching and powerful": his ballads draw from New England's rich history, many concern the sea and those who make their living upon it. He accompanies his singing with guitar, banjo and harmonica. Stop by between 5 and 7 and experience Larry Kaplan live.

We LOVE our books around here and we have an absolutely WONDERFUL selection! Originally stocked for our Inn guests, we have expanded our collection as demand has grown for our eclectic offerings!
