Judy Pascal Antiques & Interiors
Amid a cluster of other design and home-goods shops on Free Street, a short five-minute walk from the Old Port, this shabby chic boutique is chock-full of new and antique finds for the cottage home, and it’s a sheer delight to browse. Owner Judy Pascal, who does double duty as an interior consultant, sources everything from glossy books on decorating and children’s antique cribs to painted armoires and chenille bedspreads, with one-of-a-kind tabletop items (many of which are nautical in nature) thrown in for good measure.
Insider Find: From pink penny-size periwinkles to 20-pound tiger-striped abalone, Pascal’s cool-hunting skills are especially evident in her selection of common and rare shells for sale.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
