Just a short drive from the Inn at Green River, there are two great antique shops in Hillsdale, New York, where my guests have found many a treasure over the years.
Red Fox Antiques, just north of the junction of Routes 22 and 23 in the center of Hillsdale, is run by Marilyn Simon, shown here with my guest who has found a teapot he decided needed a new home. Marilyn always has a good assortment of tramp art, paintings, furniture, china, pottery, and glass.
Just three miles from the Inn, down Route 22, is Hillsdale Barn Antiques,
run by Frank and Rose Marie Francis. You can’t miss the large three
story white barn set in the beautiful valley just south of Dodd’s Farm
where the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival takes place each July.
This shop specializes in American country furniture, folk art, hooked
rugs, quilts, baskets, and stoneware, all artfully displayed. There is a red table displayed with red hanging shelves above it that is on my wish list!
Hudson is of course, the most famous place for antique shopping in our area, and in another blog post I will share some of my favorite shops there, but as you can see there are lots of great antique shops to explore in other parts of the county, so on your next trip to Columbia County, or to Hudson, leave some time in your schedule for wandering around our beautiful countryside, hunting for treasures, and be sure to ask me for a map and directions to my favorites!
