Best of Hudson Shopping:
17 unique furniture stores, offering gently used bargains to handcrafted treasures

Shopping is one of those activities that roughly half the population loves, and does partly for the sheer fun of browsing or bargain hunting. The other half won’t step foot in a store until they’re down to the last smear of peanut butter in the jar or are desperate for socks that don’t have built-in ventilation. Whether you love it, hate it, or have an it’s-complicated relationship with shopping, here’s some great news: Hudson, New York, just an hour from Pittsfield, is fast becoming a shopper’s paradise, where you can pick up just about everything you need in a single day.

Within a span of about a mile, Hudson boasts dozens of independent home decor boutiques and stores for everything from bedsheets to hand-thrown ceramic bowls and bars of pressed Spanish figs. Sure, there are some larger chain stores, too, but why bother, when there’s such a wealth of small businesses to choose from? So gas up the car and get yourself caffeinated, and join us for the first in our series on shopping in Hudson.

We’re kicking it off with a look at where to shop for furniture. Note: There are so many antiques stores in Hudson that doing all of them justice would require a separate article by someone with far more expertise on the topic. Just a handful have been included here, and have been chosen for their variety and accessibility.

Love handmade and hand-upholstered wood furniture? The pieces at Fern are an investment, but the quality and one-of-a-kind aesthetic are well worth it.

Neven & Neven Moderne
618 Warren Street

From the Crayola-colored sign over the doors, you might expect Moderne to be a spunky, pop-art ode to the ’60s. But this large shop, a Hudson mainstay since 1987, with a cult following of both domestic and international customers, boasts an envy-inspiring collection of midcentury furniture. If the pieces looks pristine, that’s because many of them have been beautifully hand-restored by the owners.

Habitat for Humanity ReStore

The only shop on our list that’s outside of downtown, Hudson’s ReStore is worth the detour.

Some items have seen more love, and are priced accordingly. But for a little more cash, you’ll have your pick of dozens of pieces in good to excellent condition, plus unusual finds, like a Vintage Windsor Gas Range from Montgomery Ward.
