Change of Season

Sloane Crosley picks out the best new books to take you from summer to fall.

Of all the antiques shops in New York's Hudson Valley, East Market Street, in Red Hook, about two hours from Manhattan, is one we really love. Owner Sandra Mackintosh Buhalis, a sculptor whose work is in the Guggenheim's collection, has assembled one of the largest collections of Americana we've seen. There are 19th-century cupboards and benches, of course, but also manhole covers, birdhouses, nautical beckets, and candy scoops. "I get really excited by utilitarian things," Buhalis says. Excited indeed: She doesn't have just one wood ampersand but 30 of them, which she sells as one lot for $9,500; not a few painted horns, but 40, which go for $13,500. Though perhaps not for casual browsers, East Market Street has become a destination for serious collectors from as far away as California. At 25 East Market Street; 845-758-9000.
