18 Best Places to Shop in The Catskills, New York

Barn Again

Fodor's choice
A favorite shop in the Windham area, Barn Again is set in a 200-year-old barn with exposed rafters and paneled ceilings and walls. It's stuffed with well-chosen items, from furnishings to housewares to decorations for your Christmas tree. You can't miss the bright red exterior. It's run by the same ladies as the adjoining Country Suite Bed and Breakfast.

Mystery Spot

Fodor's choice
The real mystery is how this shop brought together such an eclectic collection: vintage clothing, costume jewelry, midcentury housewares, and oddball bits and pieces like a crackle-faced baby doll and a drum major's uniform. If you're into old vinyl, you'll find a huge selection of old records in the back room.

Fabulous Furniture

In nearby Boiceville, owner Steve Heller does incredible things with trees—some already fallen, others oddly shaped. Inside his one-of-a-kind store and workshop, you'll find custom-made tables and other furnishings, as well as unique sculptures fashioned from metal and restored and fanciful classic cars.
