shop on main logoThe Cold Spring Area Chamber of Commerce encourages shoppers to think local and start their holiday shopping with a visit to Main Street on Nov. 30. Small Business Saturday will offer a full day of events to support local businesses.

Enjoy the Cold Spring Farmers’ Market at St. Mary’s on Main from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., with a knife sharpener on site for kitchen and small garden tools. The Country Goose offers international food tastings and a free gift basket raffle, and Go-Go Pops features Taza Stoneground Chocolate tastings. Old Souls will teach how to care for cast iron, offer recipe cards, and give a free cleaning scrub brush with cast iron purchases.

Fun seekers will enjoy guessing how many presents in the window of Joseph’s Jewelry, and win a silver necklace valued at $299. Design your own custom sign in time for Christmas at The Country Touch, and enter to win two tickets to Cold Spring by Candlelight at ColdSpringAntiquesCenter. Side Effects/NY East Village boutique has a raffle for a $25 gift certificate.

The Gift Hut offers a free tote bag with the purchase of two Bananagram games. Archipelago at Home will give a crystal prism with any $20 purchase, and Kismet will give an ornament with any $20 purchase.

Gallery 66 NY is offering gift-wrapping lessons with an artist and The Marina Gallery offers hot cider and a chat with exhibiting artists, Ann and David Provan. Finish your day at Whistling Willie’s with their “Holiday Cheer” $5 beer with hints of pecans and peaches.

The chamber hopes for a visit from the Putnam County Cash Mob. Cash mobs are spontaneous groups of people who visit a local Main Street, agreeing to spend $20 in a shop, and conclude with a drink at a local restaurant.

Chamber president Debbi Milner said, “We welcome our friends from far and wide to join in the day and help support our independent shopkeepers.”
