The Hudon Valley Green Fair On April 26th and 27th the Hudson Valley Green Fair was held at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds in Rhinebeck NY. The Dutchess County Board of Realtors had a booth at the fair and many local agents provided coverage.

Shoe Covers Don't Show Houses without them I must admit right now I don't have a supply of shoe covers with me when showing homes, however this item is rather inexpensive and a great tool to have on hand.
