As giant stores expand across the country, some small shopkeepers quiver and quake and finally give up. Not in Cold Spring, New York.
Main Street merchants in the historic little village on the Hudson River are also expanding — on to the sidewalks outside their stores.
Starting on Saturday, Sept. 27, and Sunday, Sept. 28, from noon to 4 p.m., they will hold a bargain-bloated sidewalk sale with just about every Main Street business participating. Rain or shine, displayed outdoors on Main Street will be antiques, gifts, handicrafts and so much more at great prices.
The weekend atmosphere will be highlighted by face painting at Kismet at Caryn’s, tiddly winks and bubble blowing contest at the Country Goose, balloon art at Go-Go Pops, checkers and chess games at the Garden Cafe, Angora wool spinning demonstration at the Country Goose, treasure hunt — everyone, camping and fishing expo at Old Souls, lemonade stand at Swing, bead identification and free gem for kids at Momminia, magic tricks at the Country Touch, grand opening of Open Concept, balloons, bubbles, music and entertainment for the children. For outdoors folks, enjoy kayaking on the Hudson and hiking Breakneck Mountain.
This quaint 19th-century village is located on the banks of the Hudson River in Putnam County, New York, and boasts many antiques shops, specialty shops and great restaurants. Enjoy the day walking and shopping on Main Street and enjoying some old fashioned outdoor shopping.
