Revisiting Bedford House
You may recall last December when I paid a visit to Bedford House, located in Bedford Hills, New York, near my farm in Katonah. It’s a wonderful home boutique owned by Lesa Vogliano and Dennis Anderson, who seek out unusual items. This fun shop is filled with eclectic layers of old and new, all displayed very artistically. Enjoy this revisit to Bedford House!
1 Bedford House is located at 17 Depot Plaza, Bedford Hills NY, right across the street from the Bedford Hills Metro-North Railroad station.
2 This boutique is a great place to shop all year round, and at holiday times, you can find great gifts here.
