PLACE is a melding of three minds. Mimi Ramos (Camp Boutique), Sonne Hernandez (Artist, Gallery Mastermind), and our beloved and magical Joan Osofsky (Hammertown).
Mimi Ramos is the mastermind behind all of the dazzling clothing/accessories etc. Her amazing and friendly energy is conveyed throughout the space in the form of the perfect dress you’ve been looking for all season. Sonne Hernandez is an amazing oil painter, originally based in NYC. She keeps PLACE flowing with inspiration via her work (her studio is in the space and she is often found there painting the hours away) and the selected work of other artists. There is always something new to see and experience and she holds regular art receptions. Our fearless leader, Joan, directs and curates the furniture and home goods selection at PLACE. The pieces are always cycling and in and out, the space really harbors a sort of lovely whimsy–the art embraces the furniture, the furniture embraces the clothing- mixing and matching color and style.
23 Main Street
Hours: Friday 11-6, Saturday 11-6, Sunday 12-5, Monday 11-6

While you’re in town you should totally take advantage of the other quirky and lovely shops. Beyond PLACE, there are a couple of great places to scour for antiques. Right next door to us–Montage & The Millerton Antique Center. Cross the street and you’ll find beautiful custom furniture maker John Goudreault and your source for funny, funky, could be custom shirts etc., The T-Shirt Farm.
The Millerton Moviehouse is our treasured independent movie theater, small but mighty and ever so charming. A great place to catch blockbusters or a lesser known (yet amazing) film. Speaking of independent–Oblong Books has a cozy little shop in town. Upstairs: adult fiction and non-fiction and funny socks. Downstairs: teen books, parenting books, kids books and toys/activities for every age.
A LITTLE EXERCISE?
There is a lovely biking/walking/running/scootering (human-powered) path called the Harlem Valley Rail Trail that starts right in town. If you forgot your bike…have no fear! The Music Cellar not only offers music lessons and Toddler Jam (on Fridays) but they also have bike rentals.
After so much shopping/biking/whatever you’re probably going to be really, really hungry. And lucky you, Millerton has some really yummy foods. There’s our most beloved Harney & Sons Tea Shop, where you can have a tasting, buy a cute treat and eat a delicious lunch (think sandwiches, think tea cheese, think curry bowls…or just think scones) in the cozy cafe. Brunch on Sundays.
If you’re in the mood for coffee instead of tea you could hit Irving Farm for some great espresso and a very extra breakfast sammy, The Fernando. If you’re not into that they offer a pretty well rounded menu of other things. The Oakhurst Diner is a great spot for eggs Benedict or a burger with a corndog on it. They also keep the local kombucha and the vintage diner vibes on tap. If you stick around after five we recommend sauntering over to Manna Dew for an extensive wine and beer menu and food with some flair and locally gathered ingredients. If you’re searching for a cocktail you should head to 52 Main, where they serve tapas always and local live music often.
