William Alexander

A hidden jewel in the town of locks! William Alexander Wine Studio- great wine, live entertainment, and good friends.

Established 2007, the most I did as with many locals is drive by and wonder what this place was all about.

How delighted we were when we walked in. Live music was playing, the staff was knowledgible and friendly, the patrons were many. I can't wait to go back again!

Hidden in Plain Sight

Where do you shop for the person who already has everything?

Try the Blue Orchid Studio in Yorkville. They carry a diverse selection of gifts that are not the “same-old, same-old” you find everywhere you shop. Located right off of Rt. 47 (101 E. Center St.) in Yorkville, you might easily drive past the store without realizing it’s there. Located in a renovated home, they create an experience from the minute you walk in the door of the shop. Everything is displayed to perfection, naturally leading you from one room to the next, and you quite rightly wonder, “what will I see next?” Don’t agonize over that hard-to-buy-for person on your list….head out to the Blue Orchid Studio; you won’t be disappointed! Check out their website too, but keep in mind, it is not all-inclusive; it merely gives you an idea of the merchandise they carry.
