337 Main St, Mount Kisco, (914) 218-8700, beehiveco-op.com
This bright and airy space is actually a collection of mini-boutiques, each featuring the high-end handicrafts of an upcoming independent designer, some of whom are local. “It’s like a seasonal market. You never know what you’re going to find,” declares owner and former graphic designer Petra Geiger, who opened the original Beehive in 2004 in her hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. The array of one-of-a-kind, handmade pieces is especially enticing and includes kids’ ponchos made from repurposed used sweaters ($72); fashionable halter aprons in bright, festive prints ($32); and handmade newsboy caps with pins ($68). A bit pricier but worth it are the colorful rings fashioned by jewelry designer Jacqueline Sanchez from sterling silver, diamonds, and—no, this is not a typo—Legos ($250).

TAPPAN Z GALLERY
51 Main St, Tarrytown, (914) 332-8800, tappanzgallery.com
After years spent indulging his art-collecting addiction on travels throughout the world, former manufacturer’s rep Ray Endreny decided to turn his attention from mass-produced products to one-of-a-kind works of art in his new gallery. Located in a historic building complete with original tin ceiling and exposed brick, Tappan Z showcases American fine arts and crafts. You’ll find paintings, photography, textile art, jewelry, handcrafted glass, ceramics, and sculpture, with price tags ranging from $100 for small sculptural jewelry to $10,000 for a large outdoor metal sculpture, though most are less than $5,000. “My goal is to make art accessible to everyone—not hard to afford or snooty like in Chelsea,” says Endreny.
