community appreciation day
Kim Wynter Hanson has converted a well-known Chester house — the Bridges Home — into Wynter Willow, a unique gift and furniture store.

The mix of items carried ranges from what might be called rustic to the very elegant. Wynter is an artist who likes to refurbish furniture in her spare time. She moved to Chester three years ago from San Francisco. Photo by Cheri McIntire
