This is a sidewalk sale, after all, and there are deals to be had. While many of the local stores will participate, here are a few of the highlights:
Bracken Feldman’s pottery
On Friday, local potter Bracken Feldman is offering a discount on her 100% handcrafted mugs: one for $30 and two for $55. If you haven’t heard of Bracken, she’s located just north of us in Croton Falls and offers workshops as well as a variety of hand-made items (pitchers, teapots, vases, bowls, plates, etc.). Fun fact: Bracken began taking ceramics classes in high school by accident – she thought she’d signed up for a photography class, but she checked the wrong box and landed in a pottery class instead. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Outside of Gather, you’ll find discounted dishes and select kitchen linens and inside you’ll find a 10% discount on new merchandise. “We are gearing up for an amazing fall with the most fabulous merchandise yet,” says Suzanne Martin who owns Gather and Rubysue. Fall styles are arriving daily, so if you are a fashionista that does not want to miss out, now is the time to purchase the new merchandise,” says owner Suzanne Martin. Gather is also contributing to the wheel’s spin of wonder with prizes like organic cotton tea towels and autumn candles.
Head to Majestic Hudson’s courtyard for their third annual artisan’s market, featuring a variety of artists throughout the Hudson Valley. The market will include fine art, jewelry, ceramics, crystals, wellness products, kids’ couture, Henna, music and more.
Old New House
Old New House has put together a sidewalk sale preview on their website, so check out their online collection of prospective sale items for the event – including handmade pillows, vintage rugs, bronze sculptures, art, and more.
Oak & Oil
When you stop in Oak & Oil to check out our brightly-colored doll house, take a few minutes to appreciate the oil paintings by Hudson Valley artist Linda Puiatti, the featured artist whose soft and evocative landscapes are juxtaposed with her textured abstract works. In fact, don’t just look, purchase something you like! If art’s not your thing or your walls are already full, Oak & Oil will have some rugs and furniture on sale as well.
Rubysue is offering an outside merchandise sale featuring denim, dresses, jackets and shoes at 50% off. If you choose to enter the store, you’ll be delighted to know this season’s merchandise is also 20% off during the sidewalk sale. Also, if you’re lucky, you’ll win one of their prizes at the carnival wheel. We’re told they’re giving away Jao body oil, mesh fashion socks and a market bag.
The Hair Wharf
Before we get into what The Hair Wharf is offering this weekend, we must take a moment to make a public service announcement: Do you understand why you use the hair products you do? What they do (or don’t do) for your hair? And how they work with other products? If not, prioritize stopping by The Hair Wharf so you can get a better understanding of what will (and won’t) work for your locks. Then, take advantage of their $10 off sale to buy what you actually need for your hair (excludes Liters and Olaplex products). You can also purchase a package of five blow dryers for $180 (the fifth one is free) or a $500 package for any service and get an extra $75 of services on the house.
Remember, the sale goes up and down Katonah Avenue (and around the corner/on the side streets) on Friday and Saturday. We hope to see you there!
