Vasilow's My sweet sixteen year old niece said, "This is my favourite present--I love it so much that I am sharing it with my friends, and we eat one a day, to make it last!!!"

Vasilow's Confectionery  
741 Columbia Street Hudson   tel. (518) 828-2717

We love Vasilow's.  If you want the best -the freshest ingredients, and quality that people from Hudson to the world over have enjoyed for 80 years--then this is the place. In fact, one of our favourite endorsements comes from my sweet-sixteen niece, Paige, who exclaimed (in a hand-written thank-you note) "This was the best gift ever!!! Although I'm sharing it with my friends, we are only eating one a day- to make it last longer."

If you haven't been to Vasilow's yet, here's a tip: Make sure you buy one for yourself, of everything you buy as a gift---one of us has been known to raid the gift box.

 One of our favourite new customers, all the way from Woodstock:

Dear Bonnie:
       I am extremely glad I stumbled onto your shop on-line. I took your advice and talked to Beth who cut my hair Thurs. night, and met some of your staff. First let me say you were all real nice and your shop has a great feel. Beth was excellent. She did what no-one else has for starters and that was to talk and listen really well. She has a great eye for what she is doing and given what she had to work with, did great by me. Thanx again Beth, and all.
