I’m not sure why, but I have either collected it or coveted it from afar. As a kid, I can remember taking out my mom’s jewelry boxes, trying on all the necklaces, bracelets and rings, studying them, then putting it back an…

We were slated to close on our first-ever house in a week, and then move into it mere days later. This would culminate a whirlwind two months that sped by in a blur, and I didn’t want our we’re-finally-homeowners moment to get lost in the haze of crazed excitement and stress my husband and I were stuck in. We needed a breather. A perspective reset so we could properly a…

A thrifting maven talks the rush that comes with a good-quality find—and helping others experience it, too. First fashion memory? Having my mom drop me off at the Goodwill in Clarence with my best friend before we could even drive ourselves there. I’ve always loved the thrill of searching the racks and finding a piece that I love. It’s calming and exciting at the same ti…

Buffalo’s turn-of-the-20th century prosperity gifted the city with an architecturally rich housing stock—many of which endure today, along with their signature craftsmanship. Replete with eye-catching woodwork, grand fireplaces and sprawling floorplans, these stately houses pack period charm in spades. But turning one of these more than 100-year-old properties into a ho…

Let me first clear the air: Passover and I didn’t always get along. I used to dread its arrival—and then pout through the eight days until it ended, along with its unwelcome dietary restrictions. No bread or pasta? How was young, picky-eater me supposed to feel about this “holiday”? But then again, that’s kind of the point. Passover celebrates the story of the exodus fr…

The two bought their first house in …
