Alder & Co

WHAT WE LOVE: A lifestyle shop that celebrates the unique and small batch, housed in a 1876 farmhouse. Alder & Co. has a lovely assortment of handcrafted goods, such as ceramics from France and woven natural fibre animal heads from Spain. Rebecca and Carla renovated the space, brightening the space with white-washed walls and stripping the original floorboards. The vintage cabinets and shelving used for displaying goods are sourced from their neighbor, Luddite Antiques. The result is a charming and original store, a perfect excuse for a trip upstate.

WHO: Rebecca Westby & Carla Helmholz. Together they founded the original Alder shop in Portland in 2010. They relocated to the Hudson Valley, opening the Germantown shop in 2017, followed by a NYC location in 2020.

WHERE: In the pastoral hamlet of Germantown in Upstate New York, home to several wonderful independent shops.
