tivoli mercantile

On our way back from our farm/camping trip,
(Most scenic non-highway drive thru Catskills)
we stopped in Red Hook, NY to visit
Jill of Tivoli Mercantile.
Jill has been following 
Paper Oranges and we have chatted a bit via facebook.
It was a very, very special treat to see her shop.
I met her husband, Arno who invented HUDSON PAINT
a chalkboard paint that comes in an array of my favorite colors.
(He is now doing paint for walls + floors)
I met their daughter, Stella who is Everett's age (5)
teens Josh (son) and Lola (daughter).
WHAT a shop!
(no joke)
Amazing books for children + adults, 
simple perfect jewelry, toys, key chains, purses,
t-shirts, baby tees, soaps, aprons.....
I found the most special things + gifts...
You must make the trip to 
5 E Market Street
Red Hook, NY 12571
Tell Jill I sent you!
Jill:  I know I went on + on!  I had to!!!
