It is hard to believe it has been 5 years since the first time I got to tell you about a Night Market happening in the Hudson Valley. Where does the time go?

I actually went to the first Night Market that Moon, Serpent & Bone Oddities and Curiosities held at Locust Grove in Poughkeepsie, New York. It was an interesting night of fun, excitement, and entertainment.  There were booths full of items for sale and psychic energies everywhere. Fast forward five years and the fun continues on June 16th, 2023 at City Winery in Montgomery, New York.

For someone like me who doesn't exactly shop from a typical catalog or at Home Goods, a Night Market is a great place for me to find not just gifts for friends but also the kind of items I might want to decorate with around the house. You can't have enough decorative brooms on the wall.

Old Ulster County Cemeteries

Old Family Cemeteries in the Hudson Valley

These four old family cemeteries are within a few miles of each other in the Town of Lloyd. If you are familiar with the area you have most likely driven by one. My question is have you ever stopped and taken a moment to think about history? Some of the people in these old family plots lived in the Hudson Valley during the 1700s. One thing I do ask is if you do come across an old cemetery please be respectful. These grounds are someone's final resting place they should be treated that way no matter how you find them. Taking anything other than possibly a stone rubbing is unacceptable.
