INTERIOR STYLE- Sheri Peterson

Strolling in Sidney

  • Apr. 30, 2015 7:00 p.m.

Taking a Saturday stroll down Beacon Ave. in Sidney, there are so many lovely home accessory and gift stores. Everything from kitchen and bath ware to furniture and linens. The wonderful thing about Sidney is you can find these really cool things all within walking distance and it makes for a fun afternoon.

I started at the Pier end of Sidney and first went into Muffet and Louisa, 2506 Beacon Ave. I was greeted by a fabulous reclaimed fir and iron table hand built by a local artist. A banded inlay of iron accented the top surface with an additional support of iron acting as a trestle. Also on display were the most wonderful coat racks, also hand made from unique pieces of wood and funky iron hardware for hooks. These pieces are truly one-of-a-kind and a statement. Muffet and Louisa are also known for their quality kitchen ware and bed linens.

Just one block up at 2474 Beacon, is Lilaberry Home Accents. I was first dazzled by their eye catching spring window display. I was drawn in and couldn’t stop myself from the visual indulgence! The front table display was a seaside theme, beautifully merchandised with seashell plates, whale themed potholders, starfish pillows and lobster decorated glass jars. There were also sisal rugs with a sailing theme, a perfect mat for the back door. I enjoyed every minute, and couldn’t help but buy some beach themed lunch napkins for the coming summer outdoor season.

My afternoon stroll flew by, I was truly amazed by Sidney’s merchants and can’t wait to spend another Saturday window shopping in Sidney by the Sea.
