Antiques and Tools, Pound Ridge, NY

With gadgets and gizmos a-plenty, Antiques and Tools is one of my favorite places to visit. From a 1920s Orvis tackle bag to a pin-up calendar of Marilyn Monroe, I treasure the unique items that I have found at this store. The place seems straight out of a novel. Outside, the property is scattered with iron garden chairs, wooden sleighs and pitchforks. The neon signs in the window and the scent of a wood-burning stove beckon you inside.

Antiques and Tools StoreThe proprietor, Joan, is welcoming and knowledgeable. She collects items by scouring estate sales, flea markets and thrift stores. Many people bring personal objects to her, hoping that something will pique her interest. Inside, her selection of goods creates the ultimate Americana collection. It includes everything from Buffalo nickels and Billy the Kid pocket knives to vintage kitchenware and old whiskey bottles.

Nestled in Scott’s Corners of Pound Ridge, NY, the store is very well-known in these parts. Pictures tacked up on a beam near the cash register depict the many celebrities who have visited the shop, including Martha Stewart, Stanley Tucci and Eartha Kitt.

We couldn’t resist stopping by on a recent drive through Pound Ridge. So glad we did. As I walked through the doorway, my eyes fell upon a bright green, tin Dazey butter churn sitting in the corner. I had never come across one of these unique metal butter churns before, as they are rarer than the glass-bottomed churns. We absolutely had to buy it. Mom also picked up a vintage milk bottle from Parker’s Dairy. And now it sits on her kitchen windowsill with a bundle of fresh thyme from the garden. Can’t wait to see what we find next time.
