I enjoy a good day trip. Hop into your two wheel or four wheel how-da-ya-call-it and escape for a day. I love full on vacations, but sometimes they are too much work. The planning before you go, catching up on life and work once you are back.  Sometimes one day away is all you need. I usually visit the Columbia County area in the spring and summer, but we were itching for a little upstate charm. If you are a fan of Brooklyn Flea or the Renegade Craft Fair, Basilica Hudson’s  annual Farm + Flea would be their country cousin. We drove up the Taconic and entered into a delightfully surprising snow-scape. The motivation behind the event is to support local artists during the holiday shopping season. They want to inspire you to avoid all of the mass market options, but if you want a brand new camera or iPad this season I won’t judge you 🙂  I decided to blog about Basilica Hudson because I know it’s a wicked spot for your wedding day and it may not have been something you have considered. You have an industrial venue filled with personality, complimented by the bucolic atmosphere of Hudson, NY. This is what separates Basilica Hudson from many of the other NYC industrial options. The area has being going through quite the renaissance over the last 20 years or so. Below are some snap shots I took between shopping and snacking.

Cedar Farm Wholesale-I loved their display. It made me want to buy everything. What a great idea, using small gourds as Christmas ornaments. I first thought they were exotic heritage pears.
