Buy local. Words I try to live by. I buy local foods whenever I can. But there's a lot more to buying local than food. The Hudson Valley has no shortage of amazing artists, and one of the best places to shop for locally made items is Created With Love Boutique, Route 376 in Wappingers Falls. You can even get cool WPDH gear.

Why not check it out for yourself on Sunday, June 24 from noon - 4 pm during Created With Love's five year anniversary celebration. And what a celebration it's going to be! Shopping, food, crafting, raffles and live music. Plus, awesome vendors, artists, other small business owners, and much more. Toni at Created with love makes cool guitar string jewelry, much of it made from guitar strings of Hudson Valley musicians. She also holds classes and cool events.

For more information about all the great, local, handmade gifts at Created With Love and their five year anniversary celebration, visit their facebook page. Better yet, stop by the shop at 949 Route 376 in Wappingers Falls.
