A Belated Opening Celebration at HunterBee in Millerton
Four months after opening their antiques shop in Millerton, Kent Hunter and Jonathan Bee (left with Moira Kelly) had a cocktail party in their store, HunterBee, to thank their neighbors and customers for their enthusiastic support during difficult times. Many guests said the ebullient fellows had done much to foster a new esprit de corps among the Millerton merchants, and the party’s bonhomie suggested that the town embraces entrepreneurs who have community spirit.
