Sale days continue


I was down in Pelham this morning to interview Tanya Scott of The Powderoom.

You may remember the shop, featured here before.

I’ll post more on Scott (and my story) next week — but until then, keep in mind that this month the boutique is having a major sale — over 75% off Fall merchandise.
It also includes:
Ed Hardy Scarfs 20% to 25%  Off
Jeans at $20.00
Tailored Trousers  20% to 30% off original price
Leather Bags 30% Off
Tops  35% Off
Evening Dresses 35% off…

Not bad, right?

The Powderoom is at 136 Fifth Ave.

Call 914-740-7855.

For gardening fans


I’m not big on gardening, sad to say… maybe I just don’t have the patience for it.

But one of my sisters has already been talking about seeds and flowers for this year.

I am going to pass this link on to her — but wanted to share it with you, too.

It’s courtesy of my friend and colleague Bill Cary, who writes our gardening blog.

Bill has posted something about great gardening books — so why not check it out?

Maybe you have a green thumb — or know a gardener with a birthday coming up.

A little shopping, a little art


It’s almost time for another exhibition to open at Lot84 in Mount Kisco.

The shop, if you’ve not been before, is a really lovely little space filled with all kinds of items for your home — and yourself.

The selection ranges from vases to tables, candles to bracelets. Read more of this entry »

Save the dates


I had been checking on and off the past few months to see if the 2009 dates had been posted for the Stormville Airport Antique Show & Flea Market.

I guess I slacked off a bit… but was reminded of it today — and guess what? They are up there.

Still wintery out there


I ordered something from Etsy recently and then started to wonder if I had been smart.

After all, it was a winter hat — a lovely little purple hat that just looked too cute to pass up.

But I kind of collect little hats, especially those with a bit of a retro feel. Besides, it was just $12, and the seller happened to be a friend of one of my sisters.

I just love having things created by local designers, so I went ahead and placed my order.

On Saturday, I got my hat from Cozy Girl Designs.

And I’ve worn it every day since it arrived… so for now, I’m ready to let spring arrive at its own pace.

Check out the site for more hats, scarves, etc. — with today’s wind chill, you just may want to stock up.

On the move


I’m working on a story to run in a few weeks about shops that have had to move, for a variety of reasons — but have still managed to stay in business.

It’s going to take a look at some of the challenges and excitement of the process.

Yesterday afternoon, I was on hand as owner Jackie Golabek and manager Karen Ringen were in the midst of packing up the wonderful (and often fragile) wares long featured at Whimsies Incognito in Tarrytown. Read more of this entry »

Shopping… and helping


I’ve just heard of a shopping event scheduled for tonight that will benefit the Putnam Humane Society.

My friend and colleague Barbara Nackman, she’s both a news reporter and writer of the Book by Book blog,  just alerted me to the event set for Kenneth Cole in The Westchester.

I’ve confirmed it with the shop — and here are the details.

Tonight, from 6 to 9:00, shoppers can take advantage of 20 percent off any purchase during those hours.

Then, 100 percent of the proceeds from the evening will go to the Putnam Humane Society.

The store again is in The Westchester, at 125 Westchester Ave. in White Plains.

For more details, call Kenneth Cole at 914-684-2653.
