I have never been to Glens Falls, NY–and to be honest, I hadn’t actually heard of it either. But after discovering this amazing little shop that’s a celebration of everything that indie small-town America stands for, I’m ready to road trip up there. Or at least hit the website for some cool stuff.
Nine Authentic Goods, named for main thoroughfare Route 9, is a bona fide small town shop in the best possible way, filled with cool vintage-inspired items almost entirely designed, produced, and crafted right in their community.
[don't miss a big exclusive discount after the jump!]
There are cool items for men, women and kids, but I think the things I love most are the vintage style baseball caps
proclaiming your affinity to various mountains in the region, not
sports teams. That’s a super cool gift for the outdoorsy type in your
family, wherever they might live.
You should also check out the vintage Adirondack Mountain postcards, which make cool holiday gifts for the right person, plus a few seriously delicious-looking gourmet food gifts from local purveyors. (They had me at Spicy Maple Almonds.) They’ve even got some cool clothes for adults and kids, plus pretty jewelry from local artists at nice prices.
going to want those nice prices, by the way. Because if you’re like me,
you’ll want save a little for a weekend at a cool B&B so you can visit
Nine Authentic Goods yourself. -Liz
