The Antique Warehouse Hudson NY
Paul and John founded the legendary Cottage Treasures 24 years ago inLong Valley, NJ. In 2014, they opened The Antique Warehouse Hudson NY and quickly created a place of epic proportions, scope, and style... and a shopping experience like no other. They find the choicest pieces in the attic of an old barn... or might just purchase the whole barn and reconstruct it in the store! Paul and John have a long history of seeing possibilities in what might otherwise be overlooked.
LERET LERET visited the Antique Warehouse Hudson in early January.We immediately connected with the space and saw an opportunity for our sweaters to live in this special place.

Their names are Michelle, Bunny, Tshidi and Atticus.

New York City based model Lola McDonnell also joined us for the shoot, who was a great addition to the local cast. We spent a whole day shooting different personalities in very unique looks styled by Shala Rothenberg. Every “model” transmitted a different energy to the sweaters and vice versa. We are incredibly grateful for their participation, and we are filled with joy to share these portraits with you all. Enjoy the show.
