Interview cont’d from ( Pt.I post below)
Tell us what you love about Newport…
I love everything there is about Newport…from the excitement of driving in via the beach route to Cliff Walk…the smell of the ocean in the air and the ever-so-much-fun dining. I cannot forget the sailing… Boating is a huge sport in my family, so we spend lots of time both on and off the water. We often drive in to Newport from Marion (Mass.) just for family time…a summer dinner in Newport is the best. But what I especially love are the people in Newport. They are truly devoted to their community and supporting causes dear to them.
Sara Campbell has a loyal following here in Newport, and for obvious reasons: a wonderfully engaged staff, beautiful and flattering made-in-the-USA piece, but what do you think makes that relationship so special?
Our customers are family…they are loyal, and stay in touch when the season closes. I love meeting people from all over the country, but I also love getting to know the locals who take care of this little jewel.
And your take on Newport in the quieter months?
It’s a very special place even in the dead of winter because the sea is still roaring, and the waves are still lapping.
