The greatest thing about traveling is getting to explore the local sights, tastes, and culture of a new area. As a small business, we delight in discovering and supporting other small businesses through our travels. After a recent visit to the Catskills of New York, we are sharing some of Ginny’s favorite new finds in the area.
A note from Ginny on her weekend itinerary; “The Catskills is the perfect fall destination. I enjoyed a long weekend with friends exploring all the area has to offer. A day trip to Hudson was filled with great food and antique shopping. Our overnight stay, in Hunter, ended with a great new find, Fellow Mountainside Cafe.”
We hope these places will inspire you visit them and explore this beautiful region, should you find yourself there.
The Quiet Botanist
The Quiet Botanist is a botanical oasis, reminiscent of apothecaries, ateliers, and overgrown gardens of a bygone era. Offering seasonal teas, clean beauty products, dried botanical stems and arrangements, as well as a newly opened Facial Spa, this unique shop is a true treat to visit.
Visit The Quiet Botanist:
445 – 447 Warren Street | Hudson, NY 12534
Feast & Floret
At Feast & Floret you can enjoy modern Italian dishes that are anything but basic. Interesting culinary combinations make for delicious dining experience. We particularly love their use of wood bowls for serving dishes in, we think this would be executed beautifully in our Teak wooden bowls from T&C Mercantile. Located in a 2-story brick building that was a 19th century carriage house and blacksmith shop, Feast & Floret offers lunch and dinner meals on weekends and dinner Wednesday-Fridays. While there pick up one of their stunning floral arrangements. Makes for a perfect way to remember your meal there!
Visit Feast & Floret:
