This weekend in particular, two seasonal events are happening: <strong>JingleFest in Downtown Greenfield</strong> and <strong>A Special Day in Northfield</strong>. Support your local community and enjoy either or both of these festive events.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>JingleFest | Greenfield, MA</h3> <p>On Friday, December 8, the Greenfield Business Association and downtown merchants of Greenfield are hosting JingleFest from 5 to 8 pm. The theme for this year&rsquo;s event is &ldquo;Light the Way,&rdquo; as festival goers will enter a totally lit up downtown. There will be tons of kid-friendly activities such as holiday crafts, a Children&rsquo;s Holiday Parade, and visits with Santa Claus at Wilson&rsquo;s Department Store.</p> <p>Also during JingleFest, GreenFields Market will sell hot chocolates for just 25 cents and luminarias will be lit throughout Main St. Plus, businesses will compete for the best-decorated display window, voted on by shoppers themselves. All voters will be entered into a drawing for a free shopping spree.</p> <p>Of course, our local passionate art community will be represented at JingleFest, with the reveal of several art displays in storefront windows. Local artists created these works to beautify Main Street for all the shoppers and celebrate the holidays. New this year is the Greenfield Holiday Pop-Up Market, thanks to Yankee Candle, which will be filled with local artisans, music, food, and libations.</p> <p>For more information on JingleFest, visit their <a href="https://www.facebook.com/events/181729822383295/" target="_blank">Facebook page</a>.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>12th Annual A Special Day in Northfield |&nbsp;Northfield, MA</h3> <p>Since you can never have too much holiday fun, the next day, Saturday, December 9, head over to Northfield for their 12th Annual A Special Day in Northfield: Olde Fashioned Holiday Celebration. &nbsp;Happening from 10 am &ldquo;through the evening&rdquo;, this event is produced and sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Northfield and the Northfield Area Tourism &amp; Business Association. Blue and white snowflakes, signs and holiday wreaths on utility poles will guide people to event locations.</p> <p>There are several new events this year such as dinner at Cameron&rsquo;s Winery, the Friday eve before A Special Day and the strolling players from the Pioneer Valley Regional High School Band. Also new this year is the Buxton Christmas Barn with fresh-cut Christmas trees, wreaths, and accessories and the Indoor Farmers and Craft Market downstairs at the First Parish Church.</p> <p>A Special Day will also boast a ton of kid-friendly activities. Mim&rsquo;s Market is offering free gingerbread people decorating plus live music by Phil Watson and Friends on the Porch. Kids can also make winter-themed crafts at Dickinson Memorial Library and pine cone bird feeders at Kidder &amp; Co. Other special events will include horse-drawn wagon rides, live theater, WHAI Radio Personality Nick Danjer, and even a bonfire at Northfield Golf Club.</p> <p><a href="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/5577/blog/Come%20and%20Enjoy%20Our%20Tenth%20Annual%20Holiday%20Celebration.pdf" target="_blank">Click here to download the full event schedule.</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Happy Holiday Season, everyone!</p> <p>Photo: Getting Ready for Santa at Centennial House Bed &amp; Breakfast</p> Holiday Pioneer Valley Arts Area Updates Wanda Mooney Franklin County Hilltowns Western Mass fair Wed, 06 Dec 2017 12:12:00 -0500 Benefits of Listing Your Home During The Winter https://www.wandamooney.com/blog/posts/2017/11/23/benefits-of-listing-your-home-during-the-winter/ <p><img alt="" class="featured featured featured" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/5577/blog/snow.jpg" style="border-width: 2px; border-style: solid; margin: 5px; float: left; width: 259px; height: 194px;">Your home is still listed for sale. You might be&nbsp;thinking it is best to take it off the market and re-list in the spring. However&nbsp;if you are serious about selling, rethink removing it from the market for the following 4 reasons.</p> <p>1.&nbsp; If you remove your home from the market, you will have less completion on the market place, which means buyers will have less to pick from.&nbsp;You actually might sell at a higher&nbsp;price in the winter&nbsp;than if you wait until spring when you&#39;ll&nbsp;have greater competition.</p> <p>2.&nbsp;&nbsp; The winter months are the best time for buyers to make a purchase.&nbsp;They normally have more time to look around before the spring, when&nbsp;life gets busy with&nbsp;kids&nbsp;getting out of school and summer vacations being planned.</p> <p>3.&nbsp; Buyers want to already be in their new home in winter so they can enjoy the start of the spring and summer season.</p> <p>4.&nbsp; Bad weather is no longer an issue for buyers&nbsp;like it used&nbsp;to be in the past, traveling to view different homes.&nbsp;Nine out of ten homebuyers search for their homes online at their workplaces, on their smart phones, and from the comfort of their homes after dark.</p> <p>I have sold many of my listings during the winter. My sellers were glad they listened to my advice about keeping their homes on the market.&nbsp;Don&rsquo;t let the winter season discourage you from trying to sell your home.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Happy Winter Selling!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> House For Sale Holiday Hampshire County Selling Tips sellers buyers coldwell banker Wanda Mooney Franklin County Hilltowns Western Mass Greenfield Thu, 23 Nov 2017 19:11:43 -0500 Shop Local this Small Business Saturday in Western Massachusetts https://www.wandamooney.com/blog/posts/2017/11/22/shop-local-this-small-business-saturday-in-western-massachusetts/ <p><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/5577/blog/shop%20small.jpg" style="margin-left: 10px; margin-right: 10px; float: left; width: 200px; height: 200px;">Living in Western Massachusetts, we are surrounded by tons of small, <strong>locally-owned businesses</strong>.

While I am looking forward to spending time with family and reflecting on what I am grateful for, in the back of my mind I am thinking about <strong>Moonlight Magic</strong>. Moonlight Magic is the annual holiday kick-off event in <strong>Shelburne Falls</strong>. Every year on Black Friday, which this year is November 24th, from 4-9 pm, the Greater Shelburne Falls Area Business Association closes off Bridge Street and the Iron Bridge to host this magical event.</p> <p><strong>Vendors</strong> will line the streets, selling crafts, candles, maple and other farm products, wreaths, and other delightful things perfect for gifting for the holidays. Barberic Farm will be selling their delicious frozen meat pies, jams, jellies, pickles, plus their handmade wool and leather products. Shelburne Farm &amp; Garden will also have a booth, selling birding supplies, pet toys, hats, and gloves. You could get all your holiday shopping done without having to even look at a mall!</p> <p>School groups and other non-profits will also set up to fundraise for their special projects. Colrain Central School will be raffling off gift baskets, and Hawlemont Elementary School will sell baked goods and offer cookie decoration as a fundraiser for their Nature&rsquo;s Classroom trip. Of course, don&rsquo;t forget to look for the Salvation Army kettle to make a donation.</p> <p>While you&rsquo;re shopping around, there will be a bunch of <strong>performances</strong>, both indoors and out. Keep your ears open for roaming performers, Welcome Yule, a group of carolers, and Tom Crean, banjoist. At 5:15 pm, be sure to be outside to watch the Parade of Lights come down Conway Street to Bridge Street. Wave to <strong>Santa Claus</strong> and his crew, plus a special horse drawn wagon courtesy of Greenfield Savings Bank. Then, pay Santa and Mrs. Claus a visit at the Mason&rsquo;s Lodge on Main Street. Some other acts you won&rsquo;t want to miss include Ageless Waves of Rhythm, the Senior Center&rsquo;s drumming group, who will perform in Greenfield Savings Bank, and Celtic Heels, Irish step-dancing group.</p> <p>My favorite part of Moonlight Magic are the beautiful lights and decorations throughout the village of Shelburne Falls. Luminaria line the streets and <strong>christmas lights and garlands</strong> drape overhead, making this cozy village even more serene.</p> <p>For more information and specific event details, go to <a href="https://shelburnefalls.com/index.php/upcoming-events/moonlight-magic" target="_blank">shelburnefalls.com</a>.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Holiday Pioneer Valley Arts Area Updates Wanda Mooney Franklin County Hilltowns Western Mass Buckland Shelburne Falls fair Sun, 19 Nov 2017 10:11:36 -0500 Colrain Artists Open Their Doors This Weekend! https://www.wandamooney.com/blog/posts/2017/11/09/colrain-artists-open-their-doors-this-weekend/ <p><img alt="" class="featured featured" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/5577/blog/ruby-rice.jpg" style="margin-left: 10px; margin-right: 10px; width: 150px; height: 220px; float: left;">Colrain, Massachusetts is a beautiful town in northern Franklin County, just below the Vermont line. The town draws many artists who seek inspiration from its natural beauty. There are so many artists, in fact that each year they all come together to host Crafts of Colrain Open Studio Tour. Grab a map and a friend and take a tour around Colrain this Saturday and Sunday, November 11-12.</p> <p>18 artisans will open their doors to showcase their art and offer live viewings of their processes. Their crafts include woodwork, fiber art, metalwork, painting, pottery, and more. One particular artist whose work I always enjoy is Ruby Rice. She creates visionary healing arts ranging from pillows to wall hangings to notecards and more. Her sanctuary and gallery has the feel of a chapel and is meant to comfort and make guests feel at home.</p> <p>For more information and to download a free map and schedule, visit <a href="http://www.craftsofcolrain.com" target="_blank">www.craftsofcolrain.com.</a></p> <p><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/5577/blog/crafts%20of%20colrain.jpg" style="width: 500px; height: 111px;"></p> Recreation Getaway Fall Festival Pioneer Valley Arts Area Updates Farm Franklin County Hilltowns Western Mass Shelburne Falls fair Greenfield Thu, 09 Nov 2017 15:11:16 -0500 Franklin County CiderDays Coming This Weekend! https://www.wandamooney.com/blog/posts/2017/11/01/franklin-county-ciderdays-coming-this-weekend/ <p>Fall in New England is such a favored time of year; the bright colors of the foliage, a chill in the air, and of course, all things apple. Every fall on the first full weekend in November, I look forward to CiderDays, a Franklin County celebration of apples. Many of the events are free and range from workshops to talks to tastings to festivals with music and more. This weekend, November 3-5 marks the 23<sup>rd</sup> Annual CiderDays.</p> <p>Here are a few events happening this weekend that caught my attention:</p> <p>On Friday from 6:30-8:00 pm, the Hawks and Reed Performing Arts Center will host &ldquo;How to Taste Hard Cider.&rdquo; Learn from cider educators Eric West and Nicole Leibon of Farnum Hill Ciders the thought process behind tasting and evaluating cider. Then, be guided through a tasting of various cider styles. The cost is $30/ticket and includes light hors d&#39;oeuvre.</p> <p>On Saturday, the Shelburne-Buckland Community Center will host free workshops, talks and tastings from beginner through advanced for cider makers, home orchardists and cider aficionados.</p> <p>Then, on Sunday from 2:30-3:30 pm at the Deerfield Community Center in Historic Deerfield, learn how to make Spanish style cider (Sidra) from cidermakers Scott Heath (Tilted Shed, CA), Ryan Burk (Angry Orchard, NY), John Reynolds (Black Duck Cidery, NY), cidermaker/restauranteur Sam Fix (ANXO, Washington DC), and beverage director Brian Rutzen (The Northman, Chicago, IL). Join moderator Darlene Hayes for discussion and samples. Tickets are $30.</p> <p>Plus, I am very excited about this year&rsquo;s Cider Salon &mdash; the world&#39;s longest-running hard cider tasting. This year, the Salons will be held in a large tent in Unity Park, on the Connecticut River in Turners Falls, with more than 90 individual cider brands from across North America and Europe. There will be two sessions &mdash; 3:30 - 5:00 and 5:45 - 7:15. Tickets are $30 per session.</p> <p>For more information, to purchase tickets, and to download the full schedule, visit <a href="http://ciderdays.org/" target="_blank">ciderdays.org</a>.</p> <p><img alt="" class="featured featured" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/5577/blog/cdhomeimage2017.jpg" style="width: 700px; height: 368px;"></p> Recreation Community Ashfield Fall Festival Hampshire County Pioneer Valley Arts Area Updates Farm Wanda Mooney Franklin County Hilltowns Western Mass Buckland Shelburne Falls agriculture fair Greenfield Wed, 01 Nov 2017 11:04:17 -0400 Attractive Contemporary Style Ranch- Ready for Move In! https://www.wandamooney.com/blog/posts/2017/10/26/attractive-contemporary-style-ranch-ready-for-move-in/ <p><img alt="" class="featured featured" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/5577/blog/houseangleview.jpeg" style="margin: 10px; width: 300px; height: 225px; float: right;">Come take a look at this attractive contemporary style Ranch that is available for you to move in and enjoy just in time for the holiday season.
