Visiting Hudson, New York April 21, 2013


We recently made the trek, to see our daughter at college, in New York.

Typically, we land and stay in NYC, to take in some of the big city!

This time, we landed in Albany, and had the chance to visit Hudson, New York. It’s about an hours drive from Albany, or two, from NYC.
If ever you have the chance, stay at a B&B, called Inn on the Hudson. Big, beautiful place, about a hundred years old, that’s been lovingly restored. Be sure to save room for their amazing breakfast selection!
Mr. Wonderful, my driver, immediately christened the bed. He took a short nap, while I got a head start on the antique shops!
The Hudson Super Market was one of my first and favorite places to stroll through.
It wasn’t just the cool inventory, but how it was displayed. Who would think that a box of whisk brooms, could look so interesting?! Or a collection of hand mixers?


Hudson Super Market was featured in Country Living’s Thrifty & Chic issue for May!

Hudson is known for high-end antique shops. Next time, I’d like to visit some of the larger flea markets and fairs.

It’s all good. That includes our daughter, Betsy, (on the right) with her roommate, at dinner with us, Saturday night.


And in case you need any advice, I know a place, where it’s almost free!

    JUST HEAVEN! I hope that you got to visit Larry at Rural Residence…one of my favorite shops in all of the world. Seriously, I have been stalking his brilliance for over 20 years. Those guys know how to make a town fabulous don’t they?

      Crap! I read about Rural Residence in the Country Living issue and didn’t get there! I’m going to avoid quickie trips to places like this with Mr Wonderful, who has NO interest in shopping. He’s a trooper, but I always feel like I’m leaving him hanging out on the sidewalk. We did go in to the hardware store, that’s like 200 years old. The owner talks forever. The B&B owners said they can’t shop there, because it takes 3 hours to buy a bolt. Good to hear from you. Hope all is well!!

    Sounds like a great place! Your pics from whisk brooms on down did not come thru…have to check on hubby’s computer to see them. But, looks like a very interesting shop….never been to Hudson! 😉

      Hi Donnamae,
      Don’t go anywhere! It was an error on my end. I was loading pictures, while on the coast to coast plane trip from Hell! Not so reliable, but it’s fixed now. Enjoy a great day!

    Thanks for fixing that! Plane ride from hell? Sounds like another interesting post! I really like that sign about psychiatric help…sign me up! 😉

    That room at the B&B looked beautiful! I can tell you had a wonderful time visiting that city. The antique store was quite unique too. It’s fun to shop away from home. You just never know what you may find!
