About Us


Have you ever walked into somebody’s home and said to yourself

“I love everything in here…I think I could live here!”

Well, that’s what happens again and again when people walk into Hammertown.  It feels like coming home to a comfortable, beautiful environment where you can shop and explore every nook and cranny or sit quietly and relax on one of our comfortable sofas or chairs while you leaf through the latest home design or cookbook.

It all started 27 years ago as a little shop in an old horse barn.  Owner, Joan Osofsky, called it Hammertown Barn.  It was her vision to bring a “modern country” sensibility to this corner of the Hudson Valley.   She succeeded.   Now 2 more stores later, she continues to inspire her customers to “love where they live” by carefully selecting and curating every item in our stores whether it’s a pair of earrings, a lamp, a piece of furniture, a book or a child’s toy, it is selected with standards of design, purpose, style and most important — comfort.  This is what has made Hammertown an award winning “lifestyle store”- selected as one of the Top 100 Stores in the country by Cottage Living Magazine and named one of House Beautiful’s favorite shops in America.

We’ve come a long way for a local family-owned and operated business and we continue to grow.  Our website, Hammertown.com has become a source not only for online shopping but for our local community as well.  We feature restaurant reviews, other local businesses, local events, recipes and book reviews…we even encourage local philanthropy.

Like our stores, we want our website to feel like you’re coming home too.  So make sure you visit our Marketplace for some ONLINE WINDOW SHOPPING!

Some of the products Hammertown features:

  • Furniture from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, Lee Industries and Cisco Furniture
  • Rugs from Nourisan, Dash & Albert and other well-known makers

We’d love to “welcome you home” at any one of our 3 stores.
