Start your holiday season in Jeffersonville


JEFFERSONVILLE, NY — This holiday season, plan to spend time in Jeffersonville, one of Sullivan County’s most charming villages. The village has added several new retail stores this year. 

Whether you are shopping for baked goods, delicious foods, books, services or fine wines—or just looking to browse—be sure to put Jeffersonville on your holiday agenda.

While you are there, check out the variety of shops, starting with Sullivan Sundries at 4890 Route 52/Main Street. It’s located in the old Jeffersonville Hardware Store. The store features a selection of domestic and imported cheeses, meats and a vast selection of imported foods, plus sweet and savory items perfect for holiday entertaining and gifts. 

Located in the front of the store, Bloom Coffee is owned and operated by husband-and-wife team Jennifer Reddish and Matthew Balding, who can guide you through the variety of coffees, teas and kombucha on tap. 

Be sure to head on to the back of the store to R52/Home—an eclectic variety store. There’s a little bit of everything, from jewelry to kitchenware, books to home accessories and nostalgic antiques. (See story in the Holiday Gift Guide, this issue, page 17.)

Two recent additions to Jeffersonville’s Main Street are bookstores. Book Mark, at 4919 Rte. 52, is located next to Tavern on Main. The shop features used and out-of-print books with titles ranging from fiction, nonfiction, art and design to the occult. 

The newest retail addition is Ratty Books, 4893 Rte. 52, a delightful children’s book-and-bits shop that features illustrated picture books and classic children’s literature for all ages. The shop also has a selection of crafts, art supplies and toys that are guaranteed to get kids off the iPads.

Speaking of books, plan to stop by the Jeffersonville Library at 19 Center St., a short walk from Main St., on Tuesday, December 5 through Saturday, December 9, and plan to stock up on books and gifts at the annual holiday book sale. 

Looking for that unique gift for that hard-to-please person? Why not a gift certificate? But not just any gift certificate: in Jeffersonville, you can get very creative. How about a gift certificate from Michelangelo’s Pizza—I for one would consider that a perfect gift! And then for chance to work it off, pick up a gift card to VIP Fitness, located at 4889 Rte. 52 East/Main Street, where one can start New Year’s resolutions early. 

Keep up the workout with a new bike from Catskill CycleWorks, 4920 Rte. 52/Main Street.

Or surprise someone with a gift certificate for a pair of really cool sunglasses from Eyes on Main St., located at 4895 Rte. 52. 

Looking for a gift that inspires creativity? Stop by Catskill Country Ceramics, 4852 Rte. 52, where you can sign up for classes or buy gifts and crafts supplies.

Let’s face it, arts-and-craft classes are much more fun than a tie or a sweater.

For the outdoor enthusiast in your life, stop by The Catskill Outdoorsman, 4882 Rte. 52/Main Street. Besides hiking, fishing and camping supplies, they also have an indoor archery range. 

Looking for a nostalgic gift to awaken memories? Browse Jeffersonville’s antiques and collectible stores: The Vintage House, 4910 Rte. 52 and The Furniture ReStore, 4917 Rte. 52, next door to the Post Office, where you are sure to find a one-of-a-kind gift that will please the most difficult to delight.

After all that fun shopping, stop by The Jeffersonville Bake Shop, 4906 Rte. 52/Main Street—aka “The Big Pink Bakery.” That’s where you will find a selection of fresh-baked goods, sandwiches, salads and piping hot coffee and espresso. The bakery is an inviting place, with comfy armchairs where you can sit and read the newspaper, browse the bookshelves (everyone loves books!) and read by the fire while sharing a pot of tea with your best friends.
