After 28 years living the chic life in uptown Manhattan, our heroine knew exactly where to go to get the best haircut, the hottest handbag, and the dirtiest martini. Life was fast-paced and most definitely glamorous, but New York’s urban jungle just wasn’t doing it for her anymore. Something was missing. The Pink Pig was getting antsy.
Before she knew it, she had started daydreaming about replacing her sleek, modern furniture with countrified wood. She found herself talking about vintage decor in the middle of board room meetings. And finally, when she just couldn’t get the idea out of her head, she announced to her two piglets that she was packing them up and moving them upstate to Westport, New York, smack dab in the middle of the Adirondack mountains. There, her unique little store was born, offering an irresistible blend of New York City style and rural charm out of an old carriage house.
The Pink Pig is the baby of Debbie Schrodt, a former Wall Street executive who left NYC in 2006 for a quieter life in the North Country. Arriving in Westport, NY, a historic town perched on the edge of Lake Champlain, Debbie dove right in and opened The Pink Pig’s two floors of stunning antique decor, including Cottage Furniture, Adirondack Style furniture, vintage wicker and rustic cabin decor made in Westport by local artists.
In spite of its country leanings, The Pink Pig delivers a distinctly New York City feel through its carefully-edited selection of apparel, jewelry and soy candles. Whether you’re more city pig or country pig, The Pink Pig is a discerning shopper’s dream.
