Editors’ Picks

– Chic Alpaca Store –

Alicia Adams Alpaca

More than 200 Hudson Valley-raised Suri alpacas provide luxurious, super-soft, sustainable fiber, which is processed into colorful textiles for Alicia Adams clothing and home lines. In addition to 100 proprietary colors of throws, the brand also makes athleisure wear, the softest sweaters, knit ties, stylish throw pillows, and event stuffed animals to go into the chicest nurseries ever.

– Eclectic Gift Selection –

Presence of Piermont

This cool shop features presents that are perfect for even the most unconventional friends. How about a personal fireplace? Color-your-own PJs? Or the most adorable hair bows for your little one? From clothing, jewelry and accessories to creative and colorful masks, the inventory is as much fun to browse as it is to buy.

– Handcrafted Jewelry –


What started as a passion-project jewelry design business five years ago for breast-cancer survivor Kaliada (Kally) Padilla has turned into a successful brick-and-mortar business in the heart of Warwick. Each piece of her exquisite jewelry is handmade or selected from other small brands and independent makers. In addition to earrings, necklaces, and rings, Padilla also has a wide variety of intention bracelets.

Basilica Farm & Flea

Since 2013, wise holiday shoppers have avoided the Black Friday blood sport opting instead for the calm and holiday cheer of Basilica Farm & Flea, held in the old steel foundry on Thanksgiving weekend. Their ‘no bar code, no plastic wrap’ ethos ensures that everything you see, hear, touch, taste, and/or buy was crafted with love and care by one of the more than 100 vendors.

– New Event Space –

City Winery

City Winery New York City location is one of Brooklyn’s most coveted event spaces, and it looks like the new Hudson Valley outpost, situated in the historic, 60,000-square-foot Montgomery Mills overlooking Wallkill River, is poised to be just popular. Original architectural features provide plenty of charm, and the company has a reputation for excellent service, food, and (of course) wine. No reason to throw your own shindig? Live public events — including an outdoor concert series — are planned for the fall.

– Place for Knitters –

The Knitting Room

More than a place to pick up a skein or two, The Knitting Room supports sustainable, ethical, and often local producers. Stop by to browse, talk shop, or simply stay and knit awhile. In addition to outdoor knitting sessions, expect online classes and knit-alongs so you can purl with others from the comfort of home.

– Place to Feel Like a Kid Again –

Megabrain Comics

Pinball wizards and comic book collectors of all ages have a home in Rhinebeck. If you weren’t satisfied with your high score as a teen, dust off the skateboard and ride down to Megabrain for a second chance at their retro arcade; then flip through some memories in the comic book stacks while you get your wheels tightened at the onsite skate shop.

– Place to Get Fitted for a Bra –

Measured to Fit

No two women are the same; their bodies aren’t, either. Beverly Franklin and Gail Williams opened their shop to empower women with properly fitted undergarments that make them feel as good as they look. Schedule a custom bra fitting and let Measured to Fit find the bra that’s perfect for you.

– Place to Get That Rustic Farmhouse Look –

Frazzleberries Country Stores

Even if you don’t live on a farm, there’s nothing more homey than a little farmhouse charm. At this Main Street Warwick shop (and another location in Newport, RI), you’ll find reclaimed barnwood furniture, artwork from American masters, farm-themed accessories, and more to assist in creating a rustic retreat.

– Retro Laundromat –

Germantown Laundromat

If Wes Anderson were to do laundry in the Hudson Valley, Germantown Laundromat is where he’d go. With a sunshine yellow exterior and shelves stocked with sustainable cleaning products, it turns an oft-dreaded chore into an experience that’s — dare we say it — fun. P.S. Don’t miss the outdoor bocce court in warm months.

– Socially Conscious Shopping Experience –

Fahari Bazaar

Hand-dyed and hand-printed garments by Tanzanian master tailors burst with color in this Chatham shop just like they do in the bazaars of Dar es Salaam. The designers receive a fair wage through shop sales, something they don’t always get back home where their work is undervalued, according to owner Fahari Wambura.
