Holiday Shopping 2023: WAVE on Elm

For today’s installment of our local holiday shopping series, we stopped into WAVE at 86 Elm St. and chatted with owner Heather Satin. 

Here’s our conversation. 

New Canaanite: Tell me about your store. Heather Satin: We’ve been around for 30 years. We started at Main Street for 26 [years] and then in 2020 we moved to the Elm Street location, which we truly love and we’ve met a lot of new customers, but still retained all of our old customers. We have jewelry, home and clothing.

Local Business Q&A: Wave on Elm

For today’s Q&A with a local business during this holiday shopping season, we hear from Heather Satin of Wave on Elm Street. Here’s our exchange. New Canaanite: We have a lot of new residents in town, many of them young families who had lived in New York City. How would you describe Wave on Elm to them? Heather Satin: We are so excited to be seeing so many new faces. Wave is your go-to for jewelry, home accessories, and clothing.

Local Businesses and COVID-19: Wave

For today’s Q&A with a local business owner, we talk to Heather Satin of Wave. After several weeks of closure, the Elm Street jewelry, home decor, accessories and gift shop reopened Wednesday—with masks required inside and hand sanitizer offered at the door—along with a handful of other retailers downtown. Wave’s hours are going back to what they were prior to the first set of restrictions that came with the COVID-19 public health emergency: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Here’s our interview. New Canaanite: How are you feeling now that your doors have reopened?
