by Harriman Real Estate on November 29, 2015

Where does the time go?? It seems like just yesterday it was Summer and we were basking in the warmth of the long days, and Thanksgiving and Christmas seemed a long way off. Now here it is November, Thanksgiving is behind us, and Christmas is so close you can taste it. In fact, it’s 25 shopping days close, if that brings it into closer focus for ya! But it’s also time once again for Wallingford Center, Inc.’s 7th Annual Holiday Stroll through the streets of downtown Wallingford on Friday, December 4th from 4PM to 9PM.

Wallingford Holiday Stroll is Dec 4th from 4pm to 9pm!As part of this festive occasion, Wallingford Center, Inc. will also sponsor the “Stroll, Shop, Win” event, a fantastic raffle with prizes of gift cards from many of the participating stores. First prize is $1,000, second place is $600, and third place is $400. How do you enter, you ask? Simple. Just stop into each of the participating merchants while you stroll and fill out a ballot. The more you stroll, the more places you visit, the more chances you have to win. Easy, right?

And if that wasn’t enough, many of the participating merchants will be offering in-store specials during the event and there will once again be activities at the gazebo in Johanna Fishbein Park, including a bonfire from 6pm – 9pm, carols sung by the Wallingford Chorus and Wallingford Community Theater, roasted chestnuts, and music provide by a DJ. Also, there will be ice carvers and Santa and Mrs. Claus will be at Mr. D’s from 5pm to 8pm.

In addition, 10 more businesses and non-profits will will have booths set up in the HUBCAP office at 128 Center Street so people can go in and get to know them better.

Last but not least, we will be holding an art open house for the artist we are currently featuring in our office, Ray Ross, from 4pm to 7pm that night as well. We’ll have some hors d’oeuvres and also a wine tasting provided by Arnie Schloemann of Wine Shop at Home, so be sure to stop in and see Ray’s work and have some refreshments!

And we are also a drop-off point for Holiday For Giving, so if you have a new, unwrapped toy you’d like to donate to a needy child, feel free to bring it in and drop it in our collection box!

2015 Wallingford Seasons of Celebrations

by Harriman Real Estate on November 29, 2015

Santa Claus is coming to town for the Seasons of Celebrations event in Wallingford! Thanksgiving’s basted, browned, bubbly glory has now passed, and the holiday craft fairs are in full swing. But another upcoming event is sure to bring out the holiday spirit in everyone: The Wallingford Seasons of Celebrations.

Scheduled for December 5th from 1PM to 5:30PM, this annual event started decades ago at the downtown train station as a meet-and-greet for Santa Claus, but in recent years has moved uptown and expanded to include a variety of fun activities. The town is sponsoring most of the activities, which are free, and most will take place in or around Town Hall.

Here’s list of the happenings:

  • O little town of Wallingford...listen to your favorite Christmas carols at the Seasons of Celebrations!Kids can visit with Santa & Mrs. Claus from 1PM to 4:30PM in the foyer of Town Hall
  • There will be a petting zoo for kids from 1PM to 4PM
  • The Yalesville Volunteer Fire Department will collect toys for Wallingford children from 1PM to 3PM
  • Hot cocoa. popcorn and cookies to keep you warm and toasty will be available from 1PM until they run out
  • A photo booth will be open from 2PM to 5PM, courtesy of Show Stopper Entertainment
  • Horse-drawn carriage rides will be offered in front of Town Hall from 1PM to 4PM
  • Roaming railroad train for the kids from 1:30PM to 4PM
  • The Yankee Chorus will sing Christmas carols from 2PM to 3PM
  • Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, 1PM to 4PM
  • Rudolph with your nose so bright, will you be in our parade tonight? See him in the Seasons of Celebrations event!The “Frosty Parade” will start at 5PM and will feature Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer
  • The Wallingford Chorus will sing carols at the gazebo in Fishbein Park at 5:15PM, followed by a reading of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” by Wallingford Mayor William Dickinson, Jr.
  • The Christmas tree lighting ceremony will take place at 5:30PM in front of the railroad station
  • Enjoy the music of DJ Jake Zielinsky all day long!

This year’s Seasons of Celebrations event again promises to be fun for kids of all ages and an exciting kick-off to the town’s holiday celebration. While we hope for good weather, would it be blasphemous to wish for just a little bit of snow? Regardless of the forecast, we hope for a great turnout and hope to see you there!

(Disclaimer: the schedule of events is accurate as of press time; however, they are subject to change at any time due to inclement weather or the organizer’s discretion. Please check back often for updates.)

Support Wallingford Businesses on Small Business Saturday 2015

by Harriman Real Estate on November 27, 2015

Support our local Wallingford businesses on Small Business Saturday!Support Wallingford Businesses on Small Business Saturday 2015

Thanksgiving has passed, the turkey and stuffing and pies are either all gone or in the fridge waiting for the next few meals, and everyone’s attention has turned to those two other days that signal the start of the frantic madness that is the Holiday Shopping Season: Black Friday and Cyber Monday. But sandwiched between those two hectic days there’s another, less well-known day that deserves just as much attention as its big brothers. Perhaps more.

Tomorrow, November 28th, is Small Business Saturday®, a day to celebrate and support the local small businesses that boost the economy and invigorate neighborhoods across the country. Last year, over 100 million people came together to show local businesses how important they are to their communities, and this year should be even bigger.

In Wallingford, you can patronize a plethora of participating businesses, including East Side Spirit Shoppe, Sweet Cioccalata, Wallingford Bowl, and Vinny’s Deli. For a map that shows all the participating shops, CLICK HERE. Also, be sure to “like” the Small Business Saturday Facebook page!

Support your local Wallingford businesses on Small Business Saturday!

Harriman Real Estate LLC is proud to support Small Business Saturday, and we’re encouraging everyone to Shop Small® here in Wallingford and throughout Connecticut on November 28th.

Most importantly, get out there, Shop Small, and let’s make this November 28th the biggest day of the year for small business. To learn more, visit ShopSmall.com.

Here are some interesting stats about Small Business Saturday.

Harriman Real Estate Welcomes Remer Angus

by Harriman Real Estate on November 2, 2015

Harriman Real Estate welcomes Remer AngusIt’s amazing that the real estate market has picked up so much heading into the holidays, a typically slower paced period for business. With such a flurry of new business, it’s critical that we have the staff on hand to provide the kind of personalized service that Harriman Real Estate has become known for, and to that end we are especially happy to welcome another agent to our family, Remer Angus.

Remer has been a REALTOR® for almost two years and comes from a varied business background. She worked in several leadership and management positions for the past 20 years, and now, in addition to her busy real estate career, she also works at Verizon Wireless. Remer was referred to us by one of our current agents and to show you just how small a world it is, imagine our surprise to find out during the interview process that she had previously worked with our broker, Pat, several years ago at an internet customer service firm!

Remer has been a resident of Meriden for 4 years and has a daughter and 2 grandchildren whom she calls the loves of her life. Remer is currently learning to speak Spanish to better serve her Hispanic clientele. She also holds two Bachelor degrees, in Business Management and Retail Management.

Remer will continue to serve her many buyer and seller clients throughout central Connecticut. You can reach her by email at remer@harrimanre.com, or by phone at (860) 268-3792.

We’re happy to have you aboard, Remer!

Nites in the City 2015

by Harriman Real Estate on September 30, 2015

Nites in the CityIf you enjoy a good glass of wine or a frosty beer from time to time, then you’ll want to be in the Silver City on October 1st and 2nd as Meriden once again hosts the 16th Annual Nites in the City, a two night event showcasing some great examples of the best wine and beer from all over the world.

Main & Vine Wine Tasting

Nites in the CityThe festivities kick off on Thursday, October 1st with the Main & Vine Wine Tasting sponsored by the Meriden Rotary and the City of Meriden. Plan on sampling over 40 varieties of wine, both imported and domestic . You’ll be able to treat your palate to Chardonnays, Merlots, Pinot Grigios, Cabernets and other delicious varietals. (Personally, I hope they include a Riesling or two, preferably from Germany or the Pacific Northwest, but any Riesling is a good Riesling!) And if you don’t care for the fruit of the vine, they will have several different beers on hand to wet your whistle with!

Light hors d’oeuvres will be available, some local artists will have their work on display and there will be live music for your enjoyment. Oh yeah, and you get to KEEP your wine glass, too! Proceeds of the Wine Tasting will go to various local charities.

Tickets will be available at the door for $25 per person, or they may be purchased in advance for $20 from local charities, the Four Points by Sheraton, 275 Research Parkway in Meriden or Bob’s Package Store, 1428 East Main Street, Meriden. For more information, call (203) 608-7100.

Silver City Brew Fest

Nites in the CityFriday, October 2nd brings brewing to the forefront with the Silver City Brew Fest, featuring 25 different beers to try including some familiar favorites like Blue Moon, Shock Top, Sam Adams and Stella Artois, as well as some less recognizable brews such as Weyerbacher, Leinenkugels and my personal favorite, Smutty Nose. Pumpkin flavored beers and some hard ciders will also be available. As with the previous night, if you’re not into beer there will be at least 25 different wines to sample as well.

The food for this night’s event will be provided as part of A Taste of Meriden as 15 area restaurants show off their signature dishes to accompany your favorite beverage.
