Plugging Away at the Blog

Yesterday I said I was not too tired for monsters. Today, I think I am. What a big baby I am! Four lousy days of work, what’s my problem? At least tomorrow is Friday. TGTF. Hmmm… doesn’t have the same ring to it.

Be all that as it may, I still want to make a blog post. I think I will speculate on some of the things I could do this weekend. The last Saturday before Christmas! Yikes! I have purchased very few Christmas presents for anyone.

Can Santa Claus help me now?

I could go to Mohawk Valley Community Market on North Main Street. I saw some sweet tree ornaments there as well as jewelry and other handcrafts. I admired some gorgeous handmade wood furniture by One of a Kind by GS. The beauty part about that is that after I shop, I can bop across the street for a drink at the End Zone Pub and Grub.

Gorgeous stuff by GS.
Animals and skulls at the Rose Quartz Stand.

Another Herkimer business I have not been in a while is the Rose Quartz Stand on Mohawk Street. I especially love the carved stone animals. Right down the street from that is the Emporium, another vendor market. After that I just may head on down to Valley Wine and Liquor for a nice bottle of wine.

How is that for a few plugs of local businesses?

Short Shout-Out on Lame Post Friday

I love this!

Happy Halloween Eve, everyone! Today I took a walk to a new shopping venue in Herkimer, NY, The Emporium. I took a bunch of pictures, because I hope to write an article for Mohawk Valley Living magazine. For today’s Lame Post Friday blog post, however, I will merely say a few words and share the most seasonal pictures I took.

I especially like the glass that says, “Drink up,Witch.”

I love fall.

The Emporium is a vendor market featuring a wide variety of stuff. Antiques, crafts, handmade goods and more. I intend to return and check out the merchandise more thoroughly soon.

They are located at 402 Mohawk St., Herkimer, NY, and are open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, closed Sunday.
