Noka Joes and The Katonah Stroll

Big Doings at NoKa & NoKa Joe's!

Their First Tag Sale, This Saturday!!

This Saturday (May 22nd) the whole town of Katonah is turning out for a Spring Stroll.  All the merchants will have specials, raffles & sales. The Katonah Museum is sponsoring an AMAZING parade through town.  (See below for more details.) But--dare I say it?--we are going to have the MOST fun at NoKa and NoKa Joe's!  Here's why you should stop by:
First, we're having a massive furniture sale!  All day long at our upstairs TAG SALE, we'll be wheelin' and dealin'  so that everyone gets a great price! And to make sure your kids are happy, too, we're giving away a free ice cream cone with each piece of furniture bought! 
In addition to furniture, there are other great things happening at NoKa & NoKa Joe's on Saturday. We'll be raffling off a month of free ice cream!  You'll get entered to win when you make any purchase over $5!  And, 'cause we love company, we've asked some of our talented friends to join us at our TAG SALE.  So the following local businesses will offer their goods and services upstairs.  Come meet them and see why we love them so!
Summer Moon Antiques, offering antique, vintage and home decor, lamps, prints, vintage signs, mirrors, and architectural items.
Tickled Pink will have cool accessories, purses and some fun household items. They will also be introducing NOURISH CLEANSE...a three day experience which is a stepping stone to better health.

and when you're done shopping and eating, and feeling a little tired...
Liz King, (lmt, nctmb) from Native Earth Bodyworks, will ease your aches with a free 5 minute massage.  Liz will also be raffling off a chance to win a full massage in the future.

Come into town for an AMAZING Parade!

This invitation is from the Katonah Museum:

The Katonah Museum of Art has partnered with Alex Kahn and Sophia Michahelles, leaders of the annual Greenwich Village Halloween Parade, to design a unique puppetry event for Katonah.  Commute of the Species will use puppetry and public performance to chronicle the arrival of non-native animal and plant species to the Hudson River Valley , from gypsy moths and zebra mussels to water chestnuts and European starlings.
Commute of the Species  will transform the everyday commuter experience into an allegory of migration and habitat expansion, essentially condensing 400 years of eco-history into a single train ride.  With the cooperation of MTA/Metro-North, a northbound train car will be transformed into a dynamic natural history museum as each "commuter" species puppet boards at prearranged stops according to its historic appearance in the area.  The menagerie will then disembark in Katonah at 1:53 pm and lead a 2:00 public parade through the streets of the village.  Starting at the Gazebo, the route will be up Parkway, left on Bedford Road, left onto Allen Place, and left on Katonah Avenue (where it will move onto the sidewalks).  It will then proceed back to the Metro-North commuter parking lot, where there will be light food and refreshments for all participants.
The Katonah Museum of Art invites the entire community to bring their puppets, costumes, masks, homemade instruments-even bird calls-and participate in this procession.
(OK, isn't this the coolest parade ever???  See below how we hope to make it even more fun!)

Gummy Bugs for all!

Come to NoKa Joe's before or after the parade, wearing your costume or mask, or bringing your puppet or homemade instruments.  When you do, you'll get some free Gummy Bugs or Fish, in celebration of all those 'non-native' creatures now living in Katonah!
