Marjorie Crandell of Pawcatuck, a frequent and grateful patron at the Bess Eaton in Pawcatuck, was curious about the red and blue benches in front of the store, between the drive-through and the street. When she asked Rob, the manager, about the benches, he told her they were made by folks in East Lyme where his wife works. "Rob has wanted outdoor streetside seating at Bess Eaton, especially for his older customers who have always socialized at the shop," Marjorie told us, "so Rob bought the paint and extra materials. I especially appreciate them as a commuter between NYC and my apartment in Pawcatuck. An added touch to the ongoing spruce-up and repainting of  Pawcatuck."
