For a Little Cabin Upstate

Survival Chic: Elk Handled Fire Starter

One day, I will own a plot of land upstate and build the perfect little house in the woods. OK, so that day’s not coming any time soon, but in the meantime, Kaufmann Mercantile is there to hold my hand as I skip under the Hudson and through the ‘hood. Seriously, this store is out of control – or maybe I’m out of control when I visit, because I want to throw everything they sell in my bag. Each piece in the shop is gorgeous in its utter simplicity.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to wrap myself up in a tartan throw and poke holes in my window boxes with a garden dibber.   If I close my eyes, I can smell the pines over my neighbor’s trash.
