RECOMMENDED: See all weekend getaway ideas

Day: Not Yo Mama’s Craft Fair 4th Annual Blowout Bash, Jersey City (10mins from NYC by PATH train)
Organized by artist Megan Gülick and curator Michelle Mumoli, this bazaar’s annual Blowout Bash showcases more than 100 vendors. Look for local singer-songwriter Jenny Woods’s jewelry incorporating recycled guitar strings ($15–$40) and New Brunswick artist Drew Brown’s hand-decorated Great Bowls Afire ($20–$75). Food, a beer truck and local bands foster a convivial atmosphere. June 23 11am–6pm (notyomamasaffairs.com)

Weekend: Providence (3½hrs from NYC by Amtrak)
Channel a genteel era walking along Westminster Street between Dorrance and Union Streets, where indie boutiques have moved into elegant turn-of-the-20th-century storefronts. In adjoining shops Queen of Hearts and Modern Love (401-421-1471, queenofheartsandmodernlove.com), designer Karen Beebe sells her vintage-inspired label Lucille ($40–$200), as well as handmade jewelry ($5–$68). Guys will find preppy-with-an-edge gear at Wharf Clothing & Wares (401-272-1231, shopwharf.com). A high concentration of local talent fills Craftland (401-272-4285, craftlandshop.com) with ceramics, prints and more.
Where to stay: Furnished with antiques by local dealer Stanley Weiss (stanleyweiss.com), Hotel Providence (401-861-8000, hotelprovidence.com) is steps from the prime shops. Rates start at $159; mention TONY when booking by phone to receive 10 percent off the room rate through June 30.

Long weekend: Washington, D.C. (4hrs from NYC by bus or 3½hrs by Amtrak)
The U Street Corridor has become a prime vintage-hunting patch, says Nicole Aguirre, who founded local-style site Worn Magazine (wornmagazine.com). Hit Dr. K Vintage (240-888-6284) for curated menswear from the 1920s through ’80s, and Treasury (202-506-6908, shoptreasury.com) to find Victorian camisoles and ’80s YSL heels.
