November brings Small Business Saturday on November 26th – an opportunity to show support for local businesses. Thinking local first keeps resources within the Hudson Valley, helping small businesses thrive. Find something unique while also supporting your community, whether it is a vinyl record from Darkside Records or some wonderful holiday décor from Adams Fairacre Farms (shameless plug), now is a great time to shop and Think Local First.
