A Playlist For … Antiquing at Water Street

It’s fall in New Paltz — the best time of year. Although the sun has been shining recently, we’re reaching the fall to winter transition point; the time where we all have seasonal depression and finals to study for and chills up our spines when we walk to class. We all need to give our minds a break, even if we need a break just to wallow. Put on your coat, Doc Martens and headphones and take a solo trip into town. Sometimes, walking down Water Street Market and sifting through New Paltz’s antique shops is just the retail therapy we need. This antiquing inspired playlist will make you feel like you’ve teleported to Stars Hollow. You can let your brain relax and wander around the shops, looking at the china tea sets, the records and the well-loved rocking chairs. The playlist isn’t subject to one genre or era, but rather the vibes of these musky second-hand stores. It includes discography from George Harrison and The Velvet Underground, but also some newer artists like Kate Bollinger and quinnie with their more upbeat cheerful songs. After you leave with a cute vintage sweater or “The Rolling Stones” on vinyl, you’ll feel good as new!
