A View from the Steeple

Stone Church is proud to announce the publication of A View from the Steeple, written by Marjorie (Midge) Bakos, one of the Church’s long-time members.

Midge, a direct descendant of one of the earliest of area settlers, tells how she developed her interest in historical research by assisting the former Stone Church secretary, Peggy Weldon, in fulfilling requests for dates of baptism, marriage etc.  As she recounted, “One particular morning while on such a search, I came upon the name Zebulon Peck who was a deacon in the early church from 1801 to 1808, ten years after the founding of the church in 1791. Oh my! It dawned on me that my grandmother had tried to tell me several times that he was my g-g-g-g-g-g-grandfather from Bristol, CT…. Now the pieces of the puzzle began to fit together and I looked through more material. I had papers and books everywhere….”

Two friends were discussing where they were going to shop one day. The first lady said, “I know where there is a great shop that has fabulous one-of-a-kind gift items reasonably priced.” The second lady said, “Where is that?” The first lady replied, “The Fair Trade Shop in Clinton.” The second lady said, “Let’s go!”

This is absolutely true! Whatever occasion you need a gift for, we’ve got you covered!
Building on the simple idea of a cow’s bell, artisans in northern India use recycled iron to create the frame of our Beaded Lattice Wind Chime, accented with brass bells and colorful glass beads. It can be suspended or hung from the wall, for use indoors or out.

Go from the sink to the table in our handcrafted ceramic Bowl of Berries Colander. Whether it’s blueberries, strawberries, raspberries or cherries, rinse your berries and serve them in this
sweet blue and white ceramic colander bowl.

These and MANY, MANY MORE uniquely handcrafted gift items from 38 different countries
can be found at our FAIR TRADE SHOP, STONE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, 8 SO. PARK
ROW, CLINTON
. Our regular hours are 10am to 4pm every Thursday and SECOND
SATURDAYS. Purchasing fair trade items ensures artisans and small farmers fair wages and
