At The Bee’s Knees, pintsize fashionistas can peruse a stock of eco-friendly attire as well as handmade and locally produced toys and accessories. Parents can keep kids stylishly but not synthetically clad in Tea Collection's Daily Tea 100% cotton clothing (all under $35) or gently swaddle tiny feet or treasured tater tots in a set of Robeez soft shoes ($21.95+). Playtime can become a chance to support local ventures with the AE wooden two-car train ($19.95), crafted in the Hudson Valley from upcycled wood. Meanwhile, Crocodile Creek floor puzzles ($14.95+) engage minds and keep little hands usefully occupied, especially if parents stow a single piece beneath the couch cushions. The Bee’s Knees also offers kids a variety of in-store events, including story time and classes in music, and the shop regularly brings adults together for parenting forums.

As children, cousins Zak Cassady-Dorion and Charlie Ruehr first bonded over a box of animal crackers. Now that they've grown up, their tastes have changed, and they have bonded over a love of artisanal olive oils. They opened their shop, Pure Mountain Olive Oil, in order to prove to others that a good, quality olive oil can complement almost any dish at any meal. Their shop stocks extra-virgin olive oils imported from Italy, Morocco, Greece, and other nations, many of which the cousins have visited themselves.
The duo encourages people to enjoy the shops healthful oils drizzled over a sandwich to replace butter, mixed with the shop's aged balsamic vinegars to make dressings, or poured over playground slides to make them faster. Zak and Charlie also offer perfect olive-oil accompaniments, including gourmet sea salts, small-batch, air-dried pastas, and spreads, including fig jam and asparagus pesto.
