The lowdown: Pottery packrats will have a field day at recently opened BG Vintage, which is teeming with colored glass, ceramic vases, pitchers, teapots, candlesticks, frames and bowls. The boutique’s bright assortment is hand-plucked by owner Brigitte Grosjean, who says, “Guests can pick whatever they like or bring in that special collectible or swatches of the colors you need to match and build your collections around it.”

The ’hood: The sought-after Design District next to North Miami Avenue.

The ambience: Think cozy and kaleidoscopic. A vintage fireplace and bar houses pottery and glass pieces.

Highlights: Unearth one-of-a-kind and vintage vases in glass and ceramic by brands such as Lennox, McCoy, Hull, Murano and Wedgwood. “It may take years to find the right vases, colors and textures to put together a collection, but here you will find the right fit,” Grosjean says.

    ‘Downton’ costumers transform Lady Edith

    Poor, sad Lady Edith. Early on in Downton Abbey, the PBS Masterpiece Classic family saga, it seemed that the much-overlooked, undervalued middle sister of the Crawley clan had been dealt a bad hand. Her assertive nose, wan manner and decorously dowdy wardrobe had apparently rendered her marriage prospects slim to nil. Be kind to her; she has so few advantages, her mother urges Edith’s sister Mary. To which Mary peevishly replies that Edith has none at all.
