Everything Old Is New Again

Milne's at Home Antiques and Gallery is a 6,000-square-foot restored factory filled with fine found objects of all ages in Kingston's Rondout. Rebekah Milne, who grew up among antiques at her parents' Manhattan store, is currently serving as president of the Kingston Waterfront Business Association and goes all out for events like the monthly Kingston Night Markets (in season) and the annual Sinterklaas event.  

But her passion for Kingston doesn't stop at the top of the hill. Besides designing the historically accurate interior of the Lace Mill artists' residence, Milne chose Midtown for the factory where she builds her own new furniture line. "We purchased the old Eden's Grocery on Franklin and Furnace, right across from the library, and that's where we build high-end custom and production furniture. I hire locally—there are 11 people working there. And I let artists paint it for the O+ Festival, so I think we may have the first mural in Midtown too." Milneinc.com
