Sunny’s Callicoon Pop
Sunrise Ruffalo and her husband, the actor Mark Ruffalo, left L.A. in the ’90s to live in the county part-time. This summer, she opened an eclectic shop in the village with clothing and home goods from near and far, like soap from the local Buck Brook Alpacas farm and New Orleans artist Chris Roberts-Antieaus’s framed tapestries. 21 Lower Main Street, Callicoon, N.Y., 12723, (845) 887-3175
Pamela Mayer’s understated shop, founded in 2006, was one of the pioneering boutiques in Narrowsburg. A former clothing designer in New York City, Mayer has assembled a bohemian selection including tie-dye dresses from Raquel Allegra, straw hats from Tuscany and organic skin-care lines, including those from Witchey Handmade, owned by Callicoon local Hollie Witchey, a model, herbalist and homeopath.
Created by a former W and Vogue editor who moved to Narrowsburg in 2006, the boutique, which now has a sister shop in Livingston Manor, offers hints of mountain charm, like antique snowshoes and Native American blankets. There’s also batik bedding from India, colorful saris and leather and woven cotton satchels that resemble a traditional creel — a portable wicker basket fly-fisherman once used to store their catch.
