Although spring might be playing peek-a-boo, this year in Cortland County, Easter is just a hop, skip, and a jump away. Let us help you organize your holiday! From Easter bonnets, baskets, brunches, and hunts, we have your guide to all things Easter.
WHERE TO FILL YOUR BASKET
If you're looking to create an unforgettable easter basket, we know just the spots! Hop on over to Cortland County to find some unique sweets and treats this year.
When it comes to classic Easter treats, Cortland County bakeries can't be beat! Frosted and East Side Bakery are famous for their delicious cookies and decadent cupcakes, and the fudge from Sinfully Sweet Cafe is always a fan favorite! Anderson's Farm Market offers a fun selection of novelty and bulk candies, and the Truxton Outpost is saving you the mess by selling locally raised, naturally colorful eggs this year!
If you are searching for some nontraditional Easter basket fillers this year, swing into Area 51 & the Crowe's Nest for a fun new game or Heroes & Villians for a cool new comic. Cinch Art Space and Artisan Elements are brimming with one-of-a-kind pieces created by local makers. Elfcup Boutique and Bev & Co. are the perfect places to grab some fun scarves, bags or jewelry for the young fashionista in your life.
Feeling entirely overwhelmed at the thought of filling a basket? Just Chill Custom Gifting By Carol will save the day! Grab a relaxing cup of tea while you tour the showroom, pursuing the fabulous selection of premade baskets or ask Carol to help curate something special just for you. From grown-up boozy baskets, perfect for a hostess gift, to creative, playful baskets with the young ones in mind, you'll find exactly what you were searching for (and probably a little something extra for you!).
