ack! the fairs are starting already! can’t let another minute pass without making sure you know that the craft fair season has BEGUN!!!
i know you want to shop local and support independent artisans, so if you’re in the Hudson Valley area, i hope you can come out and see us at the 2nd annual Hudson Valley Hullabaloo THIS WEEKEND!!! Kingston, NY is where it’s at, and the vendor list is a real who’s who of local talent. there will be handmade gifts galore, a photo booth, gift wrapping, food, music and FUN!!!
if you can’t make the Hullabaloo, i’ll also be in the Basilica Farm & Flea in Hudson over Thanksgiving weekend (check out the Black Friday Soiree from 5-9 Friday night for food tastings, cocktails and other festivities).
my last fair of the season will be the Indie Mart in Narrowsburg, a new one for me that i’m super excited about! hope to see you at one of them! and for all my pals who live in other parts of the world, please do seek out the small craft markets near you. shopping handmade is a triple WIN for you as the gift-giver, for the gift receiver, and for the artist whose love, time and effort went into the making of the gift.
