hudson valley Hullabaloo

Event, special features

Hullabaloo Premier Passes! Shop before the crowds, close parking and more!

Many of our handmade and vintage vendors have tons of ONE-OF-A-KIND items! This means they sell out, sometimes pretty quickly. But, you can avoid this by purchasing the Hullabaloo Premier Pass!

The Premier Pass offers early entrance at 10am, before the big crowds hit at 11am. Premier parking, which is really close to the event, most of the other parking will be at the Saugerties High School across the street. (There will be sports games on the same day, so some of the parking near the fields will only be available to people attending the games). And a cotton Hullabaloo tote, perfect for carrying your newly purchased handmade and vintage items! The pass is $10, and it can be found here.


Vendor Features: Eco Skin Essentials, PKBrown Woodworking, Hawk Dance Farm, and ehstern!

What do these four makers have in common? Not only are they all returning Hullabaloo vendors, they also share a commitment to sustainability, eco-conscious products and practices, and responsibly sourced materials! What an awesome bunch…

Eco Skin Essentials, Phoenicia, NY

After becoming disillusioned with big corporations after working for years in the food industry, Theresa of Eco Skin Essentials started doing some research—and what alarmed her about what was in our food got her thinking about what’s in the products we put on our skin…we’ll spare you the gory details, but it’s pretty scary stuff! Lucky for you, we know where you can get handmade, all-natural, vegan soaps and skin care products, in eco-friendly packaging! There’s a bar soap scent for every nose—like the zesty lemon poppy seed, the soothing lavender vanilla, and the invigorating peppermint rosemary—and even unscented options too! In addition to these fantastic soaps, Theresa makes sprays, body butters, lip balms, and other miracle products (have you tried the Chapped Skin Stick for your winter skin needs? OMG, there should be one in every stocking!). She also has new products to make your baths more pampering. We’re so happy Eco Skin Essentials is back for their third Hullabaloo! 


PKBrown Woodworking, Tivoli, NY

We’re so excited to have PK Brown Woodworking back for their second Hullabaloo! In his studio in Tivoli, which is powered by a photovoltaic system, Kaj creates his pepper grinders, salt and pepper mills, salt and pepper shakers, coffee grinders, jewelry boxes, and French rolling pins (which are new this year!), all from sustainable local wood.  “Each tree writes its own story,” he says…and his mission is to carefully reveal the grains of the woods to let the stories show through. He’s recently developed a new method of laminating the wood to give the finished item a unique look and make the grain of the wood stand out. Eco-conscious and beautifully-crafted, Kaj’s products are fantastically functional gifts for anyone who appreciates fine craftsmanship! 


Hawk Dance Farm, Hillsdale, NY

Hawk Dance Farm is returning to Hullabaloo for their second year, bringing their 100% beeswax candles, nature crafts, and handmade digeridoo instruments (look for their heirloom veggies, herbs, and flowers at local farmers’ markets)! Their charming candles are perfect for the holidays—like, hot cocoa in front of the fire in your Catskills log cabin perfect! And it gets better—they’re donating a portion of their profits from the sale of their beeswax candles to organizations that raise awareness about the declining bee population, and that educate the public about the important role of pollinating insects in sustaining our food growing system! How awesome is that!?!? So pick up some awesome candles (we’re partial to the Christmas trees and the pine cones, but you can’t go wrong with a high-quality taper either!) for the bee-lover, hostess, co-worker, friend, or other special person on your list!


ehstern, Kingston, NY

Emilia is back for her second Hullabaloo! Using silk that is repurposed, remnant, or purchased from Peace Silk (a sustainable, fair trade supplier that allows the silkworms to complete their lifecycle), Emilia dyes the material a variety of beautiful colors, cuts it into cords, and designs her unique hand-crafted silk jewelry. She often adds elements of metal, wood, glass, and organic materials—also obtained from sustainable, fair trade source—to lend texture and variety to her work. The results are one-of-a-kind, soft, light, comfortable pieces of jewelry that are easy to wear and sure to get attention! This year, Emilia has been experimenting with different dyes and color combinations, sourcing new beads and findings, and designing new styles, like tassels and a new version of her fringe necklace on a brass chain. She offers unique jewelry designs in a wide range of price points, so her pieces make great gifts for anyone who would appreciate a pop of color and texture!

Sponsor shout-out

Sponsor Shout-Out: Thanks to Antilogy Design & Screenprinting for Making the Hullabaloo Goodie Bags Possible!

“Antilogy” is defined as “a contradiction in terms or ideas”—but there is nothing contradictory about Jim Moore, or his business Antilogy Design & Screenprinting. In fact, Jim and his staff seem quite agreeable and super chill…our experience with him, and those his clients describe in a cool “About Us” video you can find on, suggests that his ideas and philosophy are right in line with ours!

Jim, who grew up in the woods of Vermont where there were no skateboard shops or t-shirts with skater-brand logos, started printing with pizza box-stencils and spray paint. As a teenager, he moved to New Paltz, walked into a screenprinting shop, and asked if he could intern. After college, he briefly moved to California and worked there printing skateboards. But he didn’t like California, preferred the Hudson Valley (don’t we all!), and returned to work in a “biker dude’s” shop in Kingston. Jim was bringing in customers of his own and soon realized he could build a business of his own too.

Okay, there is one contradiction about Jim—he’s a perfectionist and a self-described control freak, yet he realized that he needed to bring some help into his growing business. He now has a handful of employees, but he wants to keep things small so that he still has a hand in every order. Jim appreciates small businesses and handmade things, and enjoys talking to the people who make them, and he wants to keep offering that personal touch to his own customers.

And that approach to customer service (in addition to his rad designs and impressive quality of work) has landed him some pretty awesome accounts and many incredibly loyal customers. Jim says that “At least once a week there’s a company that I’m really psyched that I get to print their shirts and I would totally buy their shirts if I wasn’t printing them.” The owner of Rock and Snow in New Paltz says of working with Antilogy “I thought they were genuinely hip. You can’t fake hipness and hip is what we aspire to and feel like we’re a part of, so it was a natural fit.” He goes on to praise the shop’s service and reliability: “That quality of work and that quality of relationship deserves that quality of respect.”

An appreciation of handmade things and talking to the people who make them?  Genuine hipness? Quality work and quality relationships? No contradictions there—that sounded like a natural fit with Hullabaloo too! When we approached Jim about printing our Hullabaloo tote bags this year, he quickly and easily agreed and he’s been super chill and easy to work with. We have complete confidence that the bags Danielle is designing will come out perfectly thanks to Antilogy’s printing skills. You should check them out when you need some t-shirts!

Now about those tote bags…we’re going to be giving away awesome reusable Hullabaloo “goodie bags”—filled with gifts, info, and special offers from our sponsors and vendors—to the first 50 shoppers (one per family, please) to come through our doors each day of the event. It’s our way of saying “Thanks for helping us get off to a great start!” Watch our social media pages for more info in the coming weeks.
