First settled nearly 200 years ago, this village is a destination for those who want to skip the malls and prefer the allure of an old-fashioned Main Street shopping experience. Williamsville has come a long way from its historic roots, hosting a bevy of boutiques, cafes, gift shops and restaurants. From indulging in a few cocktails to shopping for your favorite brand, it’s all just steps away from the beautiful Glen Falls.
How would you describe your personal style?
My style is a reflection of who I am, funky and bold with an obsession for amazing vintage pieces. Whether I’m mixing prints or completely monochromatic having fun and experimenting with style is a must.
Where are your favorite places to shop?
Second Chic is a great place to find staple pieces to mix into your wardrobe. Their location couldn’t be better because they are right next door to Monarch where you can find a statement necklace to polish any look for only $10.
How do you tackle a neighborhood like Williamsville?
Williamsville is a family oriented town. Get to know your neighborhood boutique and restaurant owners and become a part of the community.
Best cheap score of late?
I just bought a striped tea length skirt that buttons down the side from Second Chic for $16! I also laid my eyes on a coach messenger bag for $30 on the way out.
A perfect day in Williamsville includes:
A cold brew iced coffee from Spot Coffee, and quiet stroll through Glen Falls and dinner and drinks at Trattoria Aroma – try the Barbabietole Salad and thank me later!
Who serves the best Village grub?
Parings has a fun twist on the stuffed pepper – a Buffalo classic and a varied selection of wines to pair your selections. The staff is friendly and very knowledgeable about their wine list.
