I need to do a package for a friend... I've come to see if anyone has any suggestions for me?? I have the package started, but would love some opinions.

The package is a "souvenir" package of sorts (i.e. package should contain things relating to our area- schenectady, albany, etc). I'm going to be spending around $20.

Can ANYONE think of any cool cheap little items that I can include? Some stuff maybe.... known to our area? (drawing a blank here). Of course, I'll contain a postcard or 2.

Anyone have any little ideas for me?!?! Would be GREATLY appreciated.

I don't know that I could do it for $20, but I like going to the local farms like Bowman, Riverview Orchard, etc and pick up local honey, syrup, jam, chesse, etc. One of the farmers markets would be a great stop too, maybe get local crafts instead. Opendoor bookstore in Sch'dy may have some local jewelery. I can't remember what is still down on Jay st. but there was a glass bead place, you could make a necklace? Local pottery? Knitted scarves, hats (local wool). Local candy, I can't remember the name of the place, I think it's on Albany St. near Home Depot. There's the pink pig holiday tradition out of Saratoga...That's all I can come up with.

A little horse from Saratoga will be under $20 and will signify the region (as well as the season, for now).
