At the end of a long claustrophobia-inducing hallway dotted with antique frames lies this furniture store, housed in a refurbished blacksmith’s cottage built in the mid-1800s. Its obscure location makes it the lesser-known counterpart to Pippin Vintage Jewelry, also owned by husband-and-wife team Rachel and Steve Cooper, who source their Mid-Century Modern and Americana finds from auctions near the Massachusetts-Vermont border. Stop by on Wednesdays, when a truck drops off fresh merchandise that somehow manages to retain the kind of affordable prices usually found only out of state: On a recent visit, we spotted an oversized silver office desk ($180), 1960s Lucite chairs ($135 each) and an old steamer trunk ($175). There’s also a hodgepodge of linens, silverware and assorted collectibles for putting the finishing details on your pad.
