Village of Saugerties

Saugerties is an antique shopper's treasure chest waiting to be opened, right in the Mid-Hudson Valley! There are over 30 shops filled with an exceptional range of fine quality antiques and collectibles. Whether you're looking for the best in Mission Oak or 19th Century European furniture, pieces to fill in a collection, that perfect piece to complete a room or just beginning to experience the never-ending joys of treasure hunting, Saugerties must be your first stop.

Antique dealers first gravitated to this picturesque town over 25 years ago. Purchasing their wares from local and distant estates, auctions and markets in New England, Canada and New York State, each shop is different in its decor and offerings -- there are items to amuse, items for practical use and there are items for serious investment. Indeed, locally, it is thought of as the town where "Dealers shop".

Located at the foot of the Catskill Mountains and on the shores of the Hudson River, Saugerties is one of the most attractive communities on the river. Just 100 miles north of Manhattan, the 8 block commercial section has been designated as a Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places and is home to over 30 antique shops. Beautiful old stone and mid to late 19th century brick buildings framed by huge old trees and surrounded by lovely gardens, sit on the hills overlooking the river.

Saugerties is a walking town, so park your car and take a stroll down Main, Market and Partition Streets where most of the antiques and craft shops are found. There are plenty of good restaurants to take a break from shopping in and there are fine country inns in which to spend the night -- you'll want to stay a couple of days in this delightful little village. Once you've gotten acquainted with Saugerties, head south on Route 9W to visit the antiques stores on top of the hill and west to see the shops on Route 32. The oldest lighthouse on the Hudson River is a half mile walk from the center of the Historic District. In the fall there are the Garlic and Mum Festivals. In the winter it's a half hour drive up the mountain to several major ski resorts.

So shop in Saugerties before you shop anywhere else. The selection is wide, the quality is high and the prices are very fair.
