Hammertown couldn’t be happier to be part of a new venture in Millerton, New York.
I believe this is a new concept in retailing for the Hudson Valley and I am thrilled to share this news with our Hammertown Community.
PLACE is the conceptual idea of Sonne Hernandez, a painter and Brooklyn transplant. The idea, basically, is a “collective” which consists of three business owners (myself, Mimi Ramos and Sonne) who have distinctively different, yet complimentary, businesses. We will be sharing a space and ideology with each of us bringing the best of our businesses to our PLACE.

THE EMPTY PLACE
Mimi Ramos, owns Camp, a fabulous clothing boutique. I’m sure many of you already know her and will remember her at Hammertown on Tent Sale weekends with her Airstream boutique-on-wheels. Sonne Hernandez, an artist, will be showcasing her own work, along with new gallery shows by other artists every 6 weeks. And, of course, there’s me who is bringing an edited, and design-inspired Hammertown presence. The goal is not to recreate the Barn, but rather to highlight the design aspect of our business. Our design consultations and design projects have become an integral part of our business and we believe our presence in Millerton will be wonderful for us. Millerton is such a great and spirited town and we are beyond-thrilled to be there (in B.W. Eagle Eye’s old space, next door to Montage).
FILLING THE EMPTY PLACE
As I said, this is a very organic and fluid process. The three of us will each be taking the lead from our customers and through their input, we’ll grow together as a collective and will continue to develop over time.
We’ve been filling the space over the past few days with curated pieces from Hammertown and both Mimi and Sonne are doing the same.
Come see the finished product. Saturday is what we’re calling our “soft opening”. I’m hoping you’ll drop by to have a look!
