 This weekend ushers in the "official" holiday shopping season. Saturday has become known as "Small Business Saturday," and the movement has really taken off. So, if you'd rather not get "malled," then Hudson Valley Etsy has many alternatives to that "black" experience. We are all over this weekend and these events are just the thing to lift your spirits with an amazing array of handmade, locally sourced holiday gifts.

Sue, of  Digiliodesigns  will be at the 44 Annual Dutchess Community College Holiday Craft Fair on Saturday and Sunday. Sue is inspired by the beauty of the natural world when creating her prints, paper goods and original art. While you're there stop by to meet Kathryn, from HuzzahHandmade to discover some of her luxury hand knits and Nuno felted accessories for special people on your holiday list.

Sue, Kathryn and Hester, from Hesters Studio  are also participating in Gifted, Hudson Valley, a sweet, little Pop-Up Shop right on the main street in Red Hook, N.Y., that opens this weekend and continues through Christmas. 

Also, if you are in the vicinity of Garrison, N.Y. you will also find a selection of Sue's items at The Desmond Fish Library Holiday Boutique
