I shop local whenever I can. I like to give my money and my business to local shops and artisans as often as possible. And there is certainly no shortage of great Hudson Valley made products. In fact, Kingston alone is full of great artists and businesses.

This Thursday, Dec. 6, you can check out all that Kingston has to offer at Made in Kingston, an expo of all things made in Kingston, from 3 pm - 8 pm at The Metro, the former MetLife Hall of Records building, at 2 South Prospect Street on the corner of Greenkill Avenue. There will be 64 vendors, 7 eateries, 5 musicians, and a whole lot more all in one place on one night. The event is open to the public, and admission is free.

For more information about Made in Kingston, visit their website or their facebook page. Shop local for the holidays and enjoy a fun evening with your friends and neighbors!
