Last weekend we took an impromptu trip down to Woodstock, NY. We've lived here for over 3 years, we're only about 20 miles away (helicopter flight) and yet had never once been there. If you like artist communities with tons of unique shops and galleries, it's the place for you.

Near a municipal parking lot we found a tiny little building called "The Tinker Gnome" - billed as "Games, Crafts, Costumes & Fun."

I thought for sure the "games" would consist mostly of classic games like chess and backgammon, and not much more. But I found that the store was well stocked with RPG books and miniatures, as well as a terrific selection of board games. The owner was also a seamstress, and had for sale many hand-made costumes (all of outstanding quality) and silk-screened fantasy shirts. To boot, one corner of the one-room store had a very nice gaming table set up, and posted on the wall a schedule of game nights. Mostly miniatures and RPG, of course, but it was quite a packed schedule! The owner was quite knowledgable about the games she sold, having played many of them, and her prices were reasonable (especially for a small store).

Their website is www.tinkergnome.com . I highly recommend this store to any gamers in the Hudson Valley region or anyone visiting the area.

Thanks for this tip! We'll definitely plan a visit next time we're at the in-laws.

He had to stop using the crow. It had too many miles on it.
