  1. ReHouse Architectural Salvage at 469 W. Ridge, Rochester has over 21,000 sq ft of local salvage from properties that are being torn down or renovated. The space is well organized, bright and easy to stop. For unique, one of a kind items that add charm and character, shop ReHouse.

  2. Arlene’s Costumes is your One Stop Disguise Shop for Halloween and so much more. They have been family owned and operated for 5 generations and 65 years!

    They carry retail and rental costumes and accessories, theatrical makeup, wigs, hats, masks and other special products to make your events perfect.

  3. Sequels Consignment shop just added a new, second showroom in Brighton at 3450 Winton Place. The shop opened 6 years ago in Victor at a warehouse on 100 Rawson Rd. Added to all styles of furniture, the new 15,000 square foot shop has beautiful glassware, pottery, lighting, rugs, mirrors, and artwork–many from local artists. The owners also travel up and down the east coast to various auctions, bringing back furnishings and home decor not easily found in our area. You’ll find fine brand names like Stickley, Ethan Allen, MacKenzie-Childs, Waterford and many more. Open Tuesday through Saturday 11 to 5.
