The Green Plum
Next vacation in the Rockies, consider a shopping expedition that includes plenty of browse time at The Green Plum in historic Salida, Colorado. This home furnishings boutique offers a delightful mix of European antiques and new furniture--the kind of old-new blend that Trad Home fans anticipate finding in our featured houses each time they curl up for their first flip-through (followed by much longer perusing, we hope). No wonder. The Green Plum's owner is TH regional editor Susan Fox, who has honed her eye scouting and styling houses in Colorado and Galveston, Texas, where she splits her time. "The 'Green' represents recycled, and the 'Plum' represents hand-picked new pieces," says Susan.
