“Check it out if you are in Canton, NY Great place to get local gifts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

Visited here after a student tour of St. Lawrence University. A really nice shop with great crafts and artworks from local artisans. I picked up a gorgeous Amish split-oak basket and two jugs of Upstate NY Maple Syrup from local growers.

Had a great chat with the lady working in there who shared information about SLU and living in the area.

If you are through the area and looking for a place to get a gift or a souvenir reminiscent of the North Country, this place is a great pick! Hope to be back some day.

Lots of interesting stuff to see and buy. I hope to get back here for some Christmas shopping. Some very talented people in the North Country. Displays are excellent also.

“Local arts and crafts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

The "museum" has been newly renovated with displays of both Amish and "english" wares. We especially liked the different buggys and quilts that were shown.
There was furniture made by local craftspeople and the new front desk is a beautiful example of North Country work. Local items such as maple syrup, wool products, furniture, and pottery are for sale.
