Nyack Gift Redux

by Bill Batson

Three local artisans have continued their seasonal collaboration to create another set. The gift box includes a new mug inspired by my Nyack Sketch Log, cookies from Lisa Chang of Nyack Sweets and tea from Preston Powell’s Teagevity. The project celebrates a community where art and small businesses thrive and the spirit of collaboration that makes Nyack a great place to live and work.

The project is the brainchild of Josh Wolfe, the founder and owner of Skypunch Creative, a promotional product company that opened an office in Nyack in 2017. “I knew Lisa from a party that my son attended, and knew Preston and Bill from my weekly sojourn to the farmer’s market. This gift box is like a day in the life of the village, with some of our favorite things to take home.”

Pre-orders on will allow us to better estimate how many gift sets to assemble. There is a $10 discount for pre-orders before mid-nite December 2nd.

As the owner of a small business myself, I am inspired by Lisa and Preston’s hard work and self-confidence. Two of my all time favorite sketch logs tell the story of how they transformed their dreams and talents into a livelihood. By learning more about them, your own entrepreneurial vision may come into focus

Our gift sets sold out last year, so order your’s today. There will be a $10 discount for orders placed before mid-nite December 2.

We hope to continue these collaborations, putting the small town touch to holidays like Valentines Day and Halloween. When you bring several small brands from a village together in one product, you’re capturing the charm of spending a day in a small town or a farmer’s market, where your discover quality, handmade crafts and foods and the people who made them. We’ve put that experience in a box.
