52 Main

It’s about time we got some tapas around here! This is a favorite stop after (or before) catching a first run at The Moviehouse a few doors down. And they made finding the place easy. Holed up there on a recent rainy night with sangria, plate of patatas bravas and live guitar music, we were temporarily transported to Spain – but glad to be so close to home.

Pine Plains Fine Wines & Spirits

We’ve admired the minimalist beauty of their print ads for years, but the impressively stocked shelves of this specialty shop are the real attention grabbers. Stop in before your next picnic, dinner party or drive home for a thoughtfully selected bottle. Or case.

Hammertown Barn

No one should go home from an excursion empty handed – who says all trinkets and keepsakes must come from abroad? Part of a locally owned (seek out the amazing Joan and her informative, fun blog) trio of stylish home décor stores, country living never looked so chic. Hammertown Barn regularly run remarkable red tag sales and we can’t get enough of their well curated, often quirky finds.
