Pat Berg, the owner of Objects of Desire, loves Chester because “it is quaint, cozy, warm and friendly…what else could you ask for?  Oh yeah,”  laughing, she says “and it is close to home – it’s wonderful to live and work in the community.”

“I always wanted to own my own  business.  In College I majored in Studio Art and American History and then worked in the legal field for awhile –  so both the left and right side of my brain work well and since I have always loved window display, fashion, color –  I am in heaven now.”

For 10 years now the shop has been open at 57 main street…in fact the 10th Anniversary is coming up on November 5th.  The shop has a good following with lots of customers shopping there for the entire time!  You can always find something new and exciting be it artisan jewelry or boutique accessories.

Pat can often be found moving things around in her shop trying to give customers a better shopping experience…and when not doing that she finds time to run the Chester Merchant Association.  As President, she is always working along with her fellow Chester Merchants to familiarize more people with the Chester shopping experience.

Pat’s favorite designer though is BORA.  This designer sets beautiful stones unusually in silver.  Originally from Turkey this artist is now designing in Brooklyn NY…”I just love the way the stones are used in such in unusual ways and combine contemporary and vintage styling” Pat says, but adds “I really love all my lines though – each designer brings something different to the table.”
