The Wilton Hardware Store is amazing. They cater to the general public, watch their prices, and are so extremely customer friendly and helpful!  Anytime there is a storm coming, they will order excess of everything they feel we will all need.   Batteries, candles, shovels, sterno, etc.   We, as many residents do now, have a generator, but still keep a good stock of supplies of batteries, flashlights, candles, etc just in case.   Tom Sato (owner) and Andy Eckman (manager) make sure they know every customer that walks in by first name, and have a very sincere interest in helping them with their little or large issues.    They both have such an incredibly deep knowledge base of information about just almost everything under the sun!   Today we have the storm of the century barreling down o...

The Village Market in Wilton CT 06897 is my hero. They were my heroes when my kids were little 40 years ago, and they are still my heroes.   A HUGE part of being in Wilton!     I remember when my first born - my son, had an ear infection, and I questioned whether I could go into the market with a fussy child to pick up some groceries and a few necessities for him.   As I entered, Charlie, the most wonderful white haired gentle man (who WAS the Market in those days!) came right over and talked to Johnny and got him giggling instead of fussing.   He gave him a bag of chips and Johnny was thrilled!   From then on, I was a fan of The Village Market and of Charlie!    All of the rest of my kids would beg to go to the market and run to the basket of KIDS' CLUB treats and be good as gold.    C...

Wilton is a town that has the small town feel, and yet it is centrally located between some very cosmopolitan towns that have great shopping, theatre, restaurants, etc such as New Canaan, Westport, and Stamford. I have heard that residents new to the town feel like they have lived here forever, because they fit right in and everyone is friendly. The schools are phenomenal!     Right now in Wilton…   Currently there are 102 homes on the market, ranging from a $169,000 Contemporary to a $24,000,000 Tudor. In December 2014 13 homes were sold at an average price of $889,577, down from November. To date 256 homes have been sold in 2014 at an average price of $874,749.     3 of the 13 homes that closed in December were sold for over $1,000,000 while only 1 sold for under $500,00.   The number...
