    Antique World: Antique Flea Market

    by kazander Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our friends took us over to the huge Antique World and Flea Market just outside of Buffalo in Clarence, NY. Tons of vendors have either outside booths set up, or rent space in one of the few buildings on the property. All sorts of things are for sale, from furniture to knick knacks.

    What to buy: I picked up some flower pots, my friends picked up some daguerrotypes and a Mork from Ork t-shirt still in it's original package. Nano nano!

    What to pay: Less than average. Good Deals to be had!

    The TePee: Native American Souveniers..ect

    by kazander Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Travelling from Cooperstown along Route 20, our destination Howe Caverns, we came upon the nationally known TePee Store. It has been an Otsego County Landmark Since 1950.
    As I cannot resist a little kitsh I had to investigate. Wandering around the store I came across some Native American jewellery, some incense, pottery moccasins..ect. But it was Lou who made the big purchase, picking up some sandals and a little silver ring.
    They also have a little place called " TePee Pete's Chow Wagon" right outside the TePee which claims the " Best Chili in Cherry Valley"

    What to buy: The Minnentonka sandals and moccasins seemed to be a good bet. Lou swears by his, says they are extremely comfortable

    This website http://www.usroute20.com/ny_postcards1.htm
    has great comparision pictures of the TePee in the 1930's and the TePee today...check it out!

    Main Street: An Antiques Mecca

    by cruisingbug Updated Nov 12, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cold Spring is well-known for its many antique shops. It's worth a walk down Main Street to check out the antiques as well as many specialty stores (jewelry, natural foods, books, Irish imports, etc.). CS is trying to become more diversified in its offerings, but the main draw is still antiquing.

    CS is also a great place to grab a meal, from the schmantzy (Cathryn's Tuscan Grill) to the down-home (Foundry Cafe) and everything in between. We like Le Bouchon, the cute little French place on Main, and also Riverview on Fair St., an Italian place with great views of the Hudson (hence the name) next to the public parking lot.

    Twice a year, the Cold Spring Antiques Dealers Association holds its Antiques Show in Mayors Park, with offerings ranging from art-deco perfume bottles to paintings to furniture.

    If you're all shopped out, drive north on 9D and take a hike - Little Stony Point is a good place to start, but there are trailheads all along the road to the Dutchess County line. You can park your car along 9D, but be careful of the traffic.

    What to buy: Antiques

    Village of Beacon: An Up and Coming Community

    by cruisingbug Updated Nov 12, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beacon, NY is emerging as a lively, artsy downtown, with enough to do to fill a day. Along Main Street, you'll find galleries, antiques stores, jewelry and book shops, and plenty of restaurants to choose from (including a new Thai restaurant, Sukhothai). Also be sure to check out the pastries at The Little Pie Shop.

    If you drive (the train station is a bit far to walk - arrange for a cab if you come up on Metro North), park at either end, and when you're done browsing, drive down to the other end. It's a bit of no-man's-land in between, a long way to walk with little to offer.

    In addition, on the second Saturday of each month, shops and galleries stay open until 9 pm, and special events are ongoing.

    What to buy: I'm not usually one for art, but in particular, I was impressed by the glass gallery, Hudson Beach Glass, @ 162 Main. A glassblowing studio on-site offers live demonstrations, but the real draw is the functional glass art inside the shop. Great little sushi dishes and old-fashioned glasses that fit like a puzzle with their bottoms so they won't slip off. Clever.

    Aphrodite's Antiques & Gifts: Antique Shopping in New Paltz

    by kazander Written Jun 21, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    New Paltz has a bunch of great little shops and Antique stores this one was my favorite...
    We parked just outside of Aphrodite's when we came into New Paltz. We saved it for our last stop and wandered around the town. We really had saved the best for last. This cute, crowded little store and lots of gorgeous antique jewlery as well as lots of other goodies. I wanted to take it all home with me.

    What to buy: I was debating between two beautiful necklaces, I settled on the abalone, Lou swooped it out of my hand and bought it for me. He is adorable:)

    What to pay: Quite reasonable if you ask me....

    Gateway Gallery: Adirondack Art for a Cause

    by kazander Updated Apr 1, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Gateway Gallery is north of Saratoga Springs just up Rt 9N just in the Adirondack Mountain area. All the unique artwork inside, furniture, paintings, wood carvings, ect..., are donated by local artists and the proceeds go to the owner's charity foundation, McArthur Park. The charity is for families who have a parent with a terminal illness.
    The work inside is really incredible! Beautiful pieces, I wish I could have bought everything.
    The owner will chat you up during your shopping experience. He'll take you on a tour of "the paper museum" it involves a 2 story outhouse....( I'll leave the rest as a surprise for your visit.) And tell you all about the pieces in the gallery as well as his charity.

    What to buy: Everything is beautiful, i'm sure you will find something to your liking...

    What to pay: It's a bit pricey, but it's all original artwork, AND your money is going to a good cause.

    Woodbury Commons: Outlet Shopping!

    by kazander Updated Jan 17, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For some super deals, head to Woodbury Commons Outlet Stores. With over 220 stores and up to 75% off in some cases, there is something for everyone. It's a good idea to pick up a map. You can pick one up at any of the stores. There are 5 sections to this large, outdoor shopping plaza, it might be easier to plan your route with a map, especially if you plan on buying a lot.
    A cool feature at the outlets is the shoppers lockers located near the tower entrance. For $3 you can store some of your purchases for up to 24 hours while continuing your shopping extravaganza. Perfect if you have bought something exceptionally heavy. Be aware though, once you open your locker, you cannot relock it. Well you can, but it will cost you another $3!

    What to buy: Anything from Coach, Gucci, Neiman Marcus, Liz Claiborne, Calvin Klein, Banana Republic, Gap, BeBe, J. Crew, Williams Sonoma, NorthFace, Timberland, Levi's, ect....the entire list of stores is on the website

    What to pay: Less than average/average

    Suffern: thrifters paradise

    by kazander Updated Dec 27, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Suffern is a cute little town over the border from Northern NJ. There are a bunch of thrift stores throughout the town. the prices are all very good, but in someplaces you might really have to hunt to find that prize you never knew you needed. After shopping you can grab a drink down the street at the Brew pub.
    A little microbrewery, with pretty good beeer!

    What to buy: It's hit or miss, you may find a lot, you may find nothing

    What to pay: depending on your find you may hit the jackpot in bargins

    Dyn's Cider Mill: Cider, Doughnuts and More

    by kazander Updated Sep 8, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On our way to Howe Caverns we came upon this wonderful little place. I have a weakness for Cider so we just had to stop. They have a giant tank full of the delicious juice and they will fill your jug while you wait. Besides cider, they also have fresh made cinnamon doughnuts, muffins andd cookies. As well as jams, jellies muffin mixes and a lot of local crafts.

    What to buy: Cider is a MUST, I also recommend a doughnut and perhaps a mix or 2. I picked up a Pumpkin bread mix, fall is on it's way!
