SHARON— Still looking for Christmas presents? Of course you are.

So get over to the Bargain Barn in Sharon, where you might have to rummage a bit to find that perfect gift.

Although the rummaging is considerably easier than it was at this time last year. The store has been reorganized, with the “Posh” clothing section split into men’s and women’s sections. The books are all in one spot, with some comfy chairs in case you want to read a bit.

In general, it’s a quicker browse.

The trick with thrift shipping is to do it often...

Waxing, poetic at SHS — all in a day’s work

SHARON — A sun-soaked afternoon on the grassy yard behind the Gay-Hoyt House was the perfect time to dip into a quick history lesson — and dip into some hot wax. 
Sharon Historical Society Executive Director Jennifer Owens paired up with the Hotchkiss Library of Sharon’s Robin Yuran for a second week of giving children a bit of hands-on learning, Colonial-style. At the earlier session they learned what a laborious chore it is to hand-churn butter (although they also could taste the delicious, sweet results).
