Milkhouse Memories Ribbon Cutting

Introducing Milk House Memories, the latest addition to Newark Valley, N.Y.’s vibrant business scene! Nestled at 7164 Rte. 38, just a stone’s throw from the Rte. 38B intersection, this charming farmhouse-style shop officially opened its doors on April 23. The brainchild of three passionate women—Deanne Goodrich, Paulette Spencer, and Kayla Walter—Milk House Memories offers a delightful blend of home décor, antiques, and refurbished furniture.

Step inside and you’ll find yourself immersed in a world of timeless classics, from rustic to primitive styles and beyond. What sets this establishment apart is its emphasis on unique, one-of-a-kind pieces personally crafted by the trio themselves. Deanne, Paulette, and Kayla, whose friendship has blossomed into a family-like bond, infuse their shared love for creativity and interior design into every aspect of the business.

For Deanne, the inspiration behind Milk House Memories stems from her lifelong passion for home décor and her desire to create welcoming spaces that breathe life into homes. Paulette, equally enthusiastic, has long harbored dreams of owning a shop where she can showcase her knack for woodworking, crafting, and personalized gifts. Meanwhile, Kayla’s love for breathing new life into old furniture mirrors her excitement for this new venture.

The name “Milk House Memories” holds a special significance, harking back to the fond recollections of an old milk house on Deanne’s family property. With many dairy farmers dotting the local landscape, the name resonates deeply with the community, reflecting the store’s commitment to celebrating farm life and supporting local artisans.

And it’s not just about selling products—Milk House Memories is a hub for local makers and businesses. From handcrafted soaps by River Rock Soaps to stunning artwork by Toni Hoskins, each item tells a story and adds a touch of local flair to the shop’s ambiance.

As for the future, Milk House Memories has big plans. Community engagement, bespoke wedding decorations, and a grand opening slated for July 1, 2023, are just the beginning. With an eye for sustainability and a heart for community, this woman-owned business is poised to become a beloved fixture in Newark Valley and beyond.
