Hunting again in Hudson...

So we "just had to" make the trip once again to the Hudson Supermarket...

Lured by the chance to visit with our pals Jennifer Lanne and Stephanie Lloyd, the promise of fab vintage finds and the assurance of a great lunch at Chirs' "Hudson Supermarket Cafe", me and Kathy made the trip with the excuse of picking up paintings from Jennifer Lanne for next week's event in Florida.

Here's a peek at the loot in Stephanie's public showspace at the need to get there to take it all in, but the peek shows her style, her incredible love of texture and the palette she's hand cultivated and bred to share. Stephanie is a talented designer and purveyor of industrial, mercantile and one-of-a-kind furnishings and accouterments much of which is repurposed at Urban Indian, her husband Ken’s workshop.

I cannot help but circling, and circling her displays 'til the melange of savory arrangements set in and take root in my lust for the old and worn, the revered and the not forgotten vernacular of yesterday...some detail shots show you what I mean...

Of course, there are some shots too that show just how hard we were "working"...look here who's goofing in the chair we both want...

...and with our buddy Ken -- yes, he's the genius behind Uban Indian, but we think his true talent lies in moving huge cupboards with one handtruck and a grasp of physics that is way beyond me...nevermind the muscle factor.

We are always willing to make the excuse to celebrate, but this time around we did cheer Kathy on her 50th...this might be my fave pic of her ever...not sure if it's the trophy she is holding or the hat she's donned, but it works for me!

Thanks again to the pals for the adventure, we all seem to mix business and pleasure with aplomb...

Until the next time...I will savor the memories of our excursion in friendship and the fab finds that made the trip back to Warwick.

PS We are planning another jaunt to enjoy one of chef Chris' prixe fixe Saturday nite special suppers at the Cafe...3/19 is on the docket and he is taking ressies now for his incredible meals. I have never eaten better food than the Market for details.
