Best Antiques Store (2003)
One of the largest family-owned and -run antiques stores in town, Brownstone has more than 14,000 square feet of floor space cram-packed with treasures. The expansive space is so full of wonderful finds, it's advisable to visit several times before making your final selection; you might overlook the perfect sideboard on the first trip. Whether it's a pair of distinguished sconces or an eccentric console adorned with trendsetting, curly-tailed monkeys, it's at Brownstone Gallery. After shopping, you can refortify at the next-door restaurant of the same name and ownership.
