WHY: “As a personal stylist, many of my clients have asked for help during these unusual times to help curate gifts, find comfortable work-from-home clothes and find items for their home and home offices,” said Nancy Carr, who is a stylist with J.Hilburn custom menswear and has organized numerous Sip and Shop events for Swim Across America Fairfield County. “Roseann and I were looking for a way to support our struggling retailers during this time and help showcase the amazing services and products that our many local independent retailers offer and decided to expand upon the popular Sip and Shop concept, and do it virtually. The wine and liquor stores and the local retailers loved it and were more than happy to come on board.”
