  1. My tenth idea would be to patronize local shops rather than huge corporation-run big box stores. You can find everything from fresh, local produce and artisan food products to toys to clothing to furniture, right in your local shops. Don’t help the big corporations; help your neighborhood by buying local. It really works!

    • Nutmeg isn’t really specific to Winsted, The term “nutmeg” comes from the state of Connecticut’s unofficial nickname “The Nutmeg State”. If you see the term “nutmeg” associated with something whether it’s a bank (like Nutmeg State bank, ballet company (Nutmeg Ballet Conservatory), etc the term Nutmeg is being used to identify Connecticut. Winsted, or at least this particular Winsted I wrote about, happens to be in Connecticut.
