Depending on how you feel, either the dreaded Black Friday weekend, or the real beginning of the exciting holiday shopping season is now upon us. Fortunately, there are options, and our Makers will be out there for your shopping pleasure. Remember, it's Small Business Saturday, so it's a great opportunity to support local, artisan, handcrafted items. Here's just a small sample of the beautiful things you'll find:
Sue, of Digilio Designs, has a selection of her work at The Hudson Valley Artisan Market ,in Dutchess County, N.Y. at the beautiful Locust Grove Estate in Poughkeepsie. Also in Dutchess County, Kathryn of Huzzah! Unique Handmade Wearables, will be back at the Dutchess Community College Annual Craft Fair for another year. This show is in it's 45th year and features two large buildings full of handmade gifts for everyone.
