Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EverythingCroton.
It's no secret. We love flea markets! Here's an August 2018 update on the Attic Treasures Flea Market in Peekskill....click on the photos and links....
But first things first....coffee and an Everything bagel with a shmear from Croton's own BAGELS-ON-HUDSON, home to Hot Dippity Donuts--and for the summer months, Croton Creamery, locally sourced, small batch Longford's Ice Cream...
We love this place...fast, quick, delicious, unpretentious and a miracle in this day and age, politics-free!
Twenty minutes later we're at the flea market!
First, a word about traffic and parking; we're happy to say that the Ginsburg Town Homes (across the street from the Bowman Towers) are now complete--and the usual traffic headaches have been greatly minimized. Depending on the weather, however, this market can be very crowded....and parking can be an issue even under the best of circumstances. Your editor continues to recommend that you go early or be prepared to walk quite a distance.
Located on Bank Street in Peekskill, the "Attic Treasures" Flea Market is open 8:30-ish to four-ish on Sundays right up until the first week in November--depending on the weather of course. It's home to everything from clothing, new, vintage and used; to genuine collectibles and occasional antiques, ephemera, records, dvd's, tools and more....it's a very eclectic market and admittedly, some weeks are better than others. You seldom walk away disappointed however.....click on the link to see a photo album from a recent Sunday visit: https://www.flickr.com/photos/22283683@N07/albums/72157699088796821
And if you love Latin breads, your editor highly recommends Perla de Oriente Panderia right around the corner....also makes outstanding stews and fajitas....we came home with a half dozen Guatemalan rolls.....

Got a whole set of vintage Havilland dishes there two weeks ago, a service for 6 with the tea pot, for fifty dollars.ReplyDelete
We went there for school supplies. There was a guy selling back-packs. We also got enough socks to last for a long time, three-ring binders, and packages of printer paper.ReplyDelete
