Au Naturale Eye Essentials Kit

Beginning Monday: Shop NY

I love this area. While I don't relish the weather this time of year (sleet this morning), this has always been "home" to me. We have a great arts community here in the Rochester area and beginning Monday I will add SHOP NY to my daily features section. I'll pick wonderful aristans and Indie businesses in New York state, with a great deal of emphasis on Rochester, Buffalo and Syracuse.

I know I have a large audience in the Rochester-area: if you know of a great Indie business, please email me and I'll contact the business to do a feature.

There are also some great shops on Etsy owned by women and men in this area. I'll showcase online venues as well as brick and mortar shops.

If you have a talented crafter to recommend, send me your suggestion to

I look forward to adding this new daily feature on Monday!
