I was lucky enough to visit one of my all-time favorite shops this weekend! Pretty Funny is in Tarrytown, New York, on South Broadway, easily accessible by the Metro-North and right near I87/287.
Pretty Funny is a treasure trove of vintage clothing, books, knick-knacks – a lot of vintage globes this time – and my favorite – jewelry!
I visited this shop so much while attending Marymount, that the owner Stephanie still recognizes me. Venturing down the hill to poke through the jewelry and other goodies in her shop was a treat, and often a much-needed respite from school stress. I still wear all of the goodies that I’ve purchased from Pretty Funny through the years, and get compliments on them all the time.
When I first started visiting the shop, it was on Main Street, tucked into a narrow little space. I had to hold my purse close, so that I wouldn’t knock anything over! More recently the operation has relocated to a huge old Victorian home, occupying the main floor and the basement. Stephanie always graciously welcomes customers with sweets – this time cookies and iced tea – perfect on a hot day. Between the cookies and the decor it’s a miracle I ever left!
I am so happy to see that Pretty Funny expanded and is flourishing. I’d love to take my future children there someday, and I look forward to many returns – no matter where I hang my hat!
