Memorial Day weekend in Hudson offers lots of opportunities to acquire bargains and treasures. On Saturday, May 24, from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., it's the Hudson Walkabout--a citywide tag sale involving both businesses and residents. Consult the map to chart your course from venue to venue or just wander the streets seeking great stuff.
Concurrent with the Walkabout on Saturday and continuing on Sunday is the 201 Union Street Estate Sale. Among the items for sale are a brass bed, planters, antique furniture, linens, original period Hudson Federal moldings, rugs, antique hardware, vintage women's and children's clothing, period mantels, quarts and gallons of Farrow & Ball paint, and much more. The sale is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. No early birds will be accommodated.
On Sunday, May 25, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. is the TSL Barn Sale at 349-351 Columbia Street. On offer there are tables, lamps, tubs, windows--"You name it, we've probably got it." Shoppers are encouraged to come in vans and pickup trucks to haul away their loot.
The biggest and best tag sale of the weekend may well be the Four-Century Yard Sale at Hudson Bush Farm. Under a tent in the yard of the 1785 Georgian mansion built by Henry I. Van Rensselaer, objects from the house and plants from the garden will be available for sale. The Four-Century Yard Sale, which promises "something for everybody," goes on for three days--Saturday, Sunday, and Monday--from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (No early birds, please.)
To get to Hudson Bush Farm from here, follow Route 9 South to Yates Road. (Yates Road is on the left, Church Road on the right, just beyond Meisner's Farm Market.) Turn left onto Yates Road and follow the signs to the Four-Century Yard Sale.
