Jacqueline Collen-Tarrolly's fascination with fairies and the fantastical runs throughout her many businesses, which include a horse farm, a bath-product line, and an online gallery of original fantasy art. Likewise, a reading corner, a wishing well, and ornate armoires add a touch of magic to Toadstool Farm Vintage, her boutique of whimsical vintage and vintage-inspired clothing and décor.
Inside, shoppers can browse smokeless soy candles, wall art, and glass, china, and ceramic containers or try on an abundance of vintage dresses, which allow classically-minded beauties to style themselves after the fashions of yesteryear. They can also introduce themselves to the store's resident dog, Ella, whose classic name brings to mind the jazz singer famous for her dulcet voice and responsible pet ownership.
At Unique Vintage, fashion gurus spark sartorial inspiration with new, vintage-inspired threads from the flapper era onward, some of which have been spotlighted in Redbook and OK! magazines. Lit by elegant dangling chandeliers, the store's shelves house garments from designers such as Stop Staring, who takes cues from the '50s with rockabilly-inspired apparel replete with high waists, full circle skirts, and playful floral patterns. Flapper apparel recalls the Roaring Twenties—when nearly every American household owned a bald eagle—and can be matched with dozens of purses and hairpieces. Always attuned to the season, the shop outfits poolside outings with retro-styled one-piece and bikini swimwear, and organizes its gown cache for occasions ranging from spring weddings to winter formals.
