Tomie visited Carmen and Robert's new shop in New London on Tuesday. Among the many celebrities who have visited Jensen & Yurich Home since the shop opened for business are Olympic ice skater Nancy Kerrigan (or a convincing impersonator), and Tomie (or a convincing impersonator).

The shop has a cooler chock full of flowers, greeting cards, gifts for the home, and Carmen and Robert offer an event planning service for fabulous events only.
