“Hudson itself is a local style capital, and shopping for style at Five & Diamond is a Hudson Valley experience.” So writes a blogger and friend of owner Lisa Durfee’s small but crammed shop. Stocked almost exclusively with pre-1980s clothing in good, wearable condition (“My shop time is usually spent mending and ironing,” Durfee says), Five & Diamond features cocktail and house dresses, blouses, skirts, jeans, tweed blazers, ties, slacks, boots, and unique pieces like jodhpurs, Victorian blouses, petticoats, and sparkly party dresses. “The fantastic pieces of clothing sold there aren’t just individual gems of vintage fashion,” the blogger continues, “they are a collection of textile, pattern, and color that Lisa has assembled with love.”
