We opened our newest Real Estate office in Rhinebeck NY a few weeks ago, and we all got a little bonus. We knew it was coming, but for Real Estate people, the perk that is working in a village filled with great home decor shops cannot to be underestimated. Window shopping while picking up a mid-afternoon iced coffee at Bread Alone is a real coffee break. Daydreaming about that outdoor ottoman made of synthetic turf is a great way to take a little brain break. We've been selling property in and around Rhinebeck for decades, and we'd stop in the village for a quick peek. But nothing compares to getting the scoop on a one of a kind item because you check in every few days. We're so glad to be there! Here are the home goods shops and special events you can check out if you come visit us in the Village of Rhinebeck.
Rhinebeck NY Home Decor Shopping
(in no particular order - we're literally pulling them out of a hat!)
Beekman Arms Antique Barn
If antiques are your thing this might be a great place to begin, just because you really can't miss it. The Beekman Arms has been the cornerstone of Rhinebeck since 1766. Right in the center of town, on the corner of Mill Street and West Market Street; as soon as you drive into town you'll automatically gravitate there. The antiques Barn is behind the Inn offering traditional antiques and art.
Rhinebeck Department Store
We walk out our back door and the back entrance to Blue Cashew is right there! It makes you want to take home a new set of dishes on a daily basis. Beautiful things for your kitchen and dining room. It even smells nice in Blue Cashew! Don't miss it - there's a lot more than pepper grinders in there.
Sadly Sawkill Co. does not have a storefront in Rhinebeck, but they are Rhinebeck based and I feel like I have to mention them because their furniture is so beautiful. Handcrafted furntiture and lighting that is at once solid and airy, classic and modern. I can't think of a house that this furniture would not fit perfectly in. Check out their website.
Hudson Valley Pottery
Pottery is a big thing for us at Coldwell Banker Village Green. Our Broker Joan Lonergan loves it so much she has her own studio at home. There is something so comforting about pottery. Drinking your coffee or tea from a mug that still has indents from the artist who formed it is a life affirming experience, especially if that artist was one of your neighbors or if it was you! Buy some pottery or make your own. They have classes and open studio hours.
A lifestyle concept showroom. Kristina Albaugh & Josh Ingmire hand select items from the best design brands in the world and display them in Rhinebeck. If you're looking for some arresting lighting fixtures this should be your first stop and if you're interested in some outdoor furniture that doesn't look like it's cousin's on clearance at home depot THIS is the place!
Traditional Hudson Valley style. Hammertown is a huge store with everything for the home and design services. They're plugged into the community which is natural since they've been around for 25 years, it's likely that everyone in town has bought something for their home here at some point. Lauded by Country Living Magazine and House Beautiful as one of the top home stores in the country you can't skip this one.
Hudson Valley Vintage
If you are a rescuer of furniture you will love this shop! Not only do they sell restored vintage furniture peices but they offer classes so you can fix up your tag sale and estate auction rescues. They also carry several hard to find paint brands for the purpose. Beyond that they have upcycled accessories and antique art.
Portly Pug Antiques
What an adorable name! Rhinebeck is known for it's antique shops. You could spend all day hunting for that perfect item and a full weekend between Rhinebeck and nearby Hudson NY. Portly Pug has hours only on weekends, Friday through Sunday. So hold onto your ecclectic bohemianism through the week.
Another neighbor we're loving is Paper Trail. It's a great store for browsing, and there's always something in there that is both beautiful and usefull; something you just can't live without. They have great stationery items AND small home goods. They also have an amazing collection of decorations for the holidays every year. It's worth making a call to them to find out when they will be displaying the holiday collection, you'll want to snap the beautiful things they choose up before someone else does.
Rhinebeck Antique Emporium
These are my favorite kind of antique stores. Many dealers come together to display items large and small from different time periods. While your girlfriend is looking at milk glass you can check out the mid-century chairs. This one's a bit out of town, but worth the drive.
Special Events at the Fairgrounds
While the traffic in Rhinebeck during events at the fairgrounds can get a little bothersome, the events there are pretty great. There are several throughout the calendar year that offer items for the home.
- The Rhinebeck Crafts Festivalwhich just went down, you'll have to wait for 2018 on that one!
- Barnstar's Fall Antiques Show in October.
- The NY Sheep and Wool Festival, also in October. If you're not a knitter or fiber artists yourself don't be put off. The festival has so much more than yarn!
- The Country Living Fair, was in June as well. This fair has all sorts of interesting goods and strangely, more women wearing cowboy hats than you'll find anywhere else in the Hudson Valley. It's a thing.
