I did not shop on Thanksgiving Day nor yet on Black Friday. However, Small Business Saturday, that’s is right up Mohawk Valley Girl’s alley! My wonderful husband, Steven, only works till two today, so we are planning a spree. I want to get my blog post written pre-spree, so this is in the nature of a Preview of Coming Attractions.
Our destination is Little Falls, NY, because we want to go to the Black Box Theatre in Stone Mill. I read in the paper that it is New Play November, and LiFT Theatre Company is presenting three plays written by director Matthew Powers. I certainly hope to write more about this. In the meantime, if you’re interested, you can Like LiFT Theater Company on Facebook.
There are several retail establishments we hope to visit this afternoon. At the top of my list is the Selective Eye, the gift shop at Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts (MVCA). No doubt I will wander into the gallery to check out the artwork while we’re there. MVCA is located right across from Little Falls Antiques Center, where in addition to the Black Box, we intend to visit the Mustard Seed and Stone Mill Antiques as well as the Shops at 25 West.
If we have time we may visit Fall Hill Bead and Gem. We may be early enough for a snack at That Little Place on Main, which is right nearby. However, we mustn’t snack too heartily, because we are also meeting friends at Copper Moose Ale House for dinner.
We have a lot of stops planned. However, before we leave Herkimer, I’m hoping we have time for a quick stop at Vintage Spirits. They are celebrating their 10th anniversary by offering tastings all day and giving away canvas totes that say “Shop Small.” Now wouldn’t that be a good place to put today’s purchases?
In all, it promises to be a fun day, and I can enjoy it with a clear conscience now that my blog post is written. I wonder if I can make enough stops to keep me in “real” posts for the entire week. Well, maybe not on Wrist to Forehead Sunday. I hope you’re all having a lovely holiday weekend.
