Patio Table Makeover

Time to toss the vinyl tablecoth!

Sunshine at dinnertime is such a rarity in these parts - so soak it up while it lasts. But be careful not to scare your patio guests off with dollar-store melamine. To go al fresco in style, try upgrading your outdoor dining space with these beautifully rustic pieces from local decor experts.

Old Faithful Shop

Be forewarned: when leaving the Old Faithful Shop, you might start pining for a larder or, at the very least, glass-bottle milk delivery service. This bricks-and-mortar general store harks back to a time when packages were wrapped in twine and most things were crafted by hand—but still manages to evoke an au courant vibe (imagine if Terence Conran lived on Little House on the Prairie). From jam jars (starting at $8) to iPad attachés (by Makr, $240), all goods look like they belong in an old trading post.
