Clinton, New Jersey - Vintage Abounds!!
I recently did a "North Jersey" tour of estate sales, including a liquidation sale at a fabulous shop in Clinton, NJ. I have blogged about Blu Daisy before (Antiques with Urban Attitude), and now that I have visited their shop, I have to say, I am sad to see them go. However, the visit allowed me to be introduced to Clinton, NJ, and all the other vintage shops, antiques, and overall charm of the town! While I unfortunately had not brought my camera, I still wanted to share what I learned about this town, and encourage you to check out this great website. Some highlights:
The Hunterdon Art Museum and the Red Mill Museum Village
The Riverside Victorian Bed & Breakfast
Events (from the Clinton Guild brochure):
Aug 30, 1pm: Music Grand Finale on Main Street and Center Street
Oct 30, 4-9pm: PumpkinFest. Carved pumpkin contest and carriage rides
Nov 27-29: Dickens Days. Olde fashioned holiday celebration with daily performances, carriage rides, holiday decorations and more!
Dec 13, 1pm: Anual Christmas Parade
Dec 17, 5:30pm: Candlelight Night. Late night shopping, carriage rides and in-town specials.
Finally, I would like to specifically recommend a lovely shop called "HeartStrings" (no website), 10 Main Street in Clinton (908-735-4020). The beautiful cottage-style furnishings and home decor will leave you breathless, as it did me.
Enjoy! Until the next pickin' weekend...
