Eff Black Friday. Start Your Holiday Shopping Off Right Tonight!

by Maggie Carr

Black Friday is the WORST. So sleep in, bundle up, and head up the Hudson River to kick off your holiday shopping Craftacular-style in beyond-gorgeous Hudson, NY.

I mean. (swoons)

The BUST Magazine Craftacular is thrilled to partner with Basilica Hudson, a factory-turned-events and art space, to present a pop-up shopping event as part of the Basilica Hudson Farm & Flea. Over 45 vendors selling everything from kimchi to fascinators to fine jewelry to woodenware will set up shop in Basilica’s main hall this weekend.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! We’re starting off the weekend with an alternative Black Friday shopping and cocktail soiree, featuring live music, delicious drinks, and (duh) shopping.

In addition to the BUST Magazine Craftacular’s amazing vendors, the Farm & Flea will also include demos, cultural lectures, dranks of all varieties, a farmstand chock full of fresh local noshes, and live music and DJs alllllll weeeeeeeekend loooooong.

(Read the above in a monster truck rally voice. It sounds cooler.)

Admission is only $3 (free for those 16 and under!). Plus, stop by the BUST booth to pick up a free issue and a specially priced 1-year subscription.

Come on by…and heck, make a weekend of it! The Basilica Hudson is mere steps from the Hudson Amtrak station, and there are tons of cool restaurants, galleries, shops, and places to stay in town.
