It’s New to Us by Jean Stratton

QUALITY AND STYLE: “We are set apart by our selection and our service. We look forward to continuing to please our customers and finding great new pieces.” Associate Greta Villeré (seated) and owner Lori Johnson of Area Home in Lambertville enjoy the special sofa, upholstered with an Indian Kantha throw in a combination of colors and fabrics. Also shown is a framed print of sea shells and coral and a hanging lantern-type lamp.

“Let Our Style Inspire Yours” is the motto of Area Home, the charming home furnishings store at 202 North Union Street in Lambertville.

The store’s location in the British Antiques Building is a story in itself. The structure dates to 1860, and was formerly a “spoke and wheel factory. “It provides a perfect setting for our offerings,” says Area Home owner Lori Johnson, who originally opened the store in 2002, after a career in interior design.

TREASURE TROVE: “Our tie-dyed products are very popular, especially with girls six to 12,” reports John Sherman. “However, recently, three ladies were having lunch outside the store, and kept noticing the tie-dyed bags in the window. After lunch, they came in, and each lady bought a bag!” Mr. Sherman, owner of Learning Express, is shown with a sampling of tie-dyed items, including messenger bag, lunch bag, back pack, and shoulder bag.

Imaginative toys, magic toys, learning toys, artistic toys, friendly toys, innovative toys, funny toys, puzzling toys — just plain fun toys! These — and more — are all available at Learning Express in the Princeton Shopping Center.

Opened in 1998, the store is an independently owned franchise, one of more than 100 in the U.S., explains owner John Sherman, formerly a marketing executive for Johnson & Johnson.
