Everything Is Better With Bacon – Even Your Neckwear!

The story behind Bacon Handmade Neckwear – a featured Valentine’s Market vendor – is truly a love story – with a side of bacon. Based in a little update NY village named Altamont, surrounded by fruit orchards, farms and the Helderberg Escarpment – a 700 ft cliff face overlooking the Hudson Valley – Bacon designer Jessyka Neitzel described these natural wonders as “tall, dark and handsome.”

The enchantment doesn’t stop there according to Jessyka:

Much like our inspirations, our mascot embodies all of these elements. He is tall dark and handsome, enjoys long walks in the orchards, and comes from our same small town of Altamont. He has evolved into a dapper young man who constantly sweeps me off my feet and just so happens to live in Greenpoint. He patiently learns to tie bowties, and sits for photos when we need a new product modeled. He is Keven Bacon.
