Laura Cantrell kicks off "Music for Front Porches" series.

As I've mentioned, I run a side venture called Homer and Langley's Mystery Spot Antiques on weekends in the warm weather in the beautiful Catskill Mountain village of Phoenicia, NY. This is our eighth season, and an exciting one, as we've moved to Main Street, expanded, and started a free music series called "Music for Front Porches."

We're celebrating our grand re-opening this weekend with a special musical performance on the front porch by Laura Cantrell. The festivities begin on Sunday, July 5th, at 2 PM and all are welcome. Delicious home-baked refreshments will be provided by Craig Thompson of Shandaken Bake.  

Upcoming front porch performances include Life in a Blender, Steve Almaas, Ambrosia Parsley, Two Dark Birds, Gail Ann Dorsey, and many more all summer/fall!

Now located in the former Gormley Hotel on Main Street in Phoenicia, NY, we’ve expanded to seven – yes, seven! - rooms of vintage heaven. Having recently acquired a collection of over 15,000 rock, jazz and C&W records (which we’re still sorting through), we can now add vintage vinyl to our offerings of antiques, rooms of men's and women's vintage clothing, out-of-print art books, mid-century lighting, rusticalia and oddities. Heck, even when are doors aren't open, you're welcome to dig through our dollar record bins and our famous Yard Sale in a Box on the front porch, with an honor box/money drop at your service.

The Mystery Spot is at 72 Main Street, Phoenicia, NY (845) 688-7868 -

Open weekends late May – Nov, 11AM – 5PM (often later), as well as most weekdays in July/August 11AM – 2PM (open later on Fridays). It’s always a good idea to call or email first if coming from a distance.

Dylan has a lot of nice things to say about Laura Cantrell on Theme Time Radio, wish I could be there. I can smell that record room from the photo.

Man if I was still collecting paraphernalia your shop would be on the list Laura. Have a great summer in the hills.

Next time I pass through I will stay overnight in the Mystery Spot. You will find me under a pile of delicious dresses. Congrats on the new store. Had a lot of fun there and use that blue and white coverlet for a table cloth in the summer.
