Well, what's next?

When one door closes, another one opens or perhaps, when one building receives construction and painting, another business is moving in.

Do you ever find yourself glancing at something quickly when driving? It appeared out of the corner of my eye and I had to investigate on my own.

For instance, the Hippie Muffler Man was standing near the road in Sullivan County, NY and captured my attention. The Largest Fork In The Road In Dutchess County, NY also gets visitors to stop and see what may or may not have been in the way for them.

A Highland, NY staple made an announcement on social media.

What Is The Baker's Tale?

The Baker's Tale was located in Ulster County, NY. This family run business always enjoyed creating meals, cakes, baked goods and more. 

The Baker's Tale storefront business is the only thing that has closed. They are still open and accepting online, custom orders.

Ulster County, NY residents can rejoice to be able to still grab The Baker's Tale's, cakes, breakfast platters, cookies, pies, holiday orders and more.

The Baker's Tale was opened by Kristin in honor of her mother. She wanted to continue to share the love of making baked goods and handmade options as well.

The Baker's Tale shared,

"We want to thank each and every one of you for helping make our dreams come true and by supporting locals. Thank you for trusting us for your dessert and baked goods needs."


"We love seeing you smile and hope you enjoy our pastries as much as we enjoyed making them for you. 

With love,


Kristin Bell and team"
