Bouquets, Boutiques & Booze Shops in the Hudson Valley

Delightful shops are plentiful in the Hudson Valley. Take a tour through haberdasheries, pick up a lovely bouquet, a bottle of Slovenian wine and signature pieces for the home imported from around the world.

Woodstock General Supply

33 Tinker Street. Woodstock, NY

A few years ago, while camping at Kenneth Wilson State Park outside of Woodstock, we popped into town for a sit down brunch and strolled the main streets. Woodstock General Supply is a cabin-esque outdoorsman’s haberdashery with a collection of clothes, candles, notebooks, and grooming products.

During our month-long stint in Kingston’s Rondout District, we were luckily enough to be neighbors with this delightful and well-stocked wine store. Friendly shopkeepers and a collection featuring the untapped and tasty Slovenian and Georgia wine market make this a must-visit for any picnicker or dinner party host/attendee.

hops petunia

73B Broadway. Kingston, NY

Hops Petunia was another glorious neighbor in the Rondout District. Almost daily, we’d peer through the windows of meticulously set, beautiful displays of flowers and candles. Here I also discovered one of the best smelling candles of all time, a Sage & Cedar soy candle, made by Simply Curated. You can also purchase a Hops Petunia bouquet at Brunette Wine Bar down the street.

nectar

1412 State Route 213. High Falls, NY

High Falls is a quirky town abutting a canal. It’s beautiful and while very small, vibrant with food, flea markets and magical shops like Nectar. Two buildings filled with a plethora of treasures from India make up Nectar, along with a warm atmosphere and tea for patrons.  It’s the type of place where we could meet a couple the same age as Andrew and I from his own hometown in Springfield, Missouri. Far from home, and yet a nexus of the universe awaits at wonderful Nectar.

Downtown antiques

23 main street. accord, ny

Ron Sharkey is the fine eye behind this antique furniture shop and outpost at the High Falls flea market. American flags, old books and a trunk are among the items we have taken off his hands. There are all sorts of amazing flea markets to discover in the Hudson Valley, here is a guide.

 

Outdated: an antique café

314 Wall Street. Kingston, NY

This is a café meets brunch spot meets antique shop. Sip matcha with a homemade muffin and buy the decor at this coffeeshop in the Stockade District.

There is no shortage of beautiful furniture at this Hudson shop. The craftsmen at Fern are also among the designers behind the Hawkins New York brand. Here is a piece I did on Hawkins in And North, a curated guide to upstate New York.

Germantown is extremely small with no more than a restaurant, grocer, antique shop and the local general store — and yet, everything in Germantown is quaint to perfection.

I didn’t get to go inside this custom leather workshop, but I admired their handiwork on motorcycles and bicycles from the window.
