Bucks County Dry Goods

At first sight, this charming-country store-like boutique seems to have average goods. But unique shapes and details reveal a totally unexpected collection here. We dare you to walk past the midcentury modern furniture, handpicked by owner Natalie Page, that occupies the front half of the store without stopping.

Lime Boutique

Occupying one of Lambertville's adorable historic homes, this boutique's large rooms are each filled with surprises. The first holds handbags from Cynthia Rowley and Kooba, the next has a wall of lingerie from Elle McPherson, and the third houses a diverse collection of clothes, from dressy Catherine Malandrino and Theory pieces to denim from AG Jeans and Hudson. Take advantage of their in-house tailoring and the sale racks on their porch in warmer months.
