Hudson Valley Rib Festival

Home Stager with HouseSetters Home Staging Services

Thanks to the Murphy Group in Kingston New York for this blog post on the Ulster County Fair and the food contests. I've missed the New Paltz fair for several years now, so I'm planning to go this year.

I moved up to the Hudson Valley in New York in 2004 and I still can't get over how beautiful it is up here! New Paltz happens to be one of my favorite towns and I am always happy to get a home staging job there. I am doing an accessories staging in Highland one town over from New Paltz next week, and I am sure that I will take a break at some point to grab a coffee in town and wander in and out of the quaint shops.

Thanks for sharing Linda.  The Hudson Valley area is absolutely gorgeous.  Recently I drove home from Pennsylvania to New York on Rt 84 and the views were just stunning!  I love New Paltz too.  It has a great bohemian feel.
