Where To Find the Hudson Valley Etsy Team This Weekend!

Okay, I know it's Thanksgiving weekend. Now's the perfect time to ask yourself whether you want to face seething crowds in big-box stores at some ungodly hour to buy mass-produced consumer units shipped in from overseas, or to support your local small businesses, independent crafters and artisans, and boost your local economy in the process. If you're reading this, I think I know what you might choose, you smart, socially-, environmentally-, and aesthetically-conscious person! You're so right. And here's what the Hudson Valley Etsy Team is doing to help you along:

Virginia of Ceruleanblue will be showcasing her ceramics at the Garrison Art Center in Garrison, NY from November 19 through 27 (A whole week? How lucky are you?) from 10 am until 5 pm daily.


Kathy of Gnorasaurus heads up to the City Center in Saratoga Springs, NY for the Saratoga Center for the Family's 36th Annual Holiday Craft Festival on Saturday, November 26 from 10 am until 4:30 pm.

Also on Saturday, Michele of The Knit Chix will be selling her wonderful handspun yarn and knit creations at the Dekalb Market in Brooklyn, NY from 10 am until 7 pm.

On Sunday, check out the Woodstock Arts Fair at the Woodstock Jewish Congregation from 10 am until 4 pm. Becky of Gemini River Rocks and Karen of Karmabee will both be there with their beautiful, whimsical and completely original artwork. I hear a rumor that they will be in the back room, with a fantastic local chocolatier. Now that's one-stop shopping!

And of course the Hudson Valley Handmade! Pop-Up Shop in Pine Bush, NY will be open for your holiday shopping as well! Go visit and feel good about gift-giving this year!
