One great thing about this area is all of the local farmers markets. It's great to go and check out what new goodies local farmers and artisans have each and every week!
I decided to hop onto Etsy, and see what kind of awesome things I could find from local artists in the Albany area. You would not BELIEVE how many cool things I was able to find, all from people within miles of me. Here's just a taste of what I found- definitely more to come!
