News from Adirondacks Out of Hand, makers of Adirondack Chandler Candle

We had a very good show at Buyers Days in Saratoga. We added a new product and several orders. We now have Reed Scent Diffusers in four fragrances that reflect North Country Seasons. (black fly, mud, and road construction not among them).

My business and domestic partner, Wes and I are also planning a retail show at the Essex County Fair Grounds August 12-13. This will be a combined show of Gun & Knife show inside the building and outdoor craft, flea, and antique market outside on the fairgrounds. RV camping is available. We welcome all crafters to give us a try and support this new venture. Obviously, this will not be a high-end event, but for $20 or $25. a 10'x10' space, it should be fun and inexpensive. Mention that you saw this notice, and I will take a dollar off your cost. Musicians who play, or crafters who demonstrate will receive $5.00 off per space. reply by email:

Started by Bruce's parents (Bruce and Suzanne), The Main Street Ice Cream Parlor has been in the family for over 15 years. Helena and Bruce bought the business three years ago.

In North Creek, Laura Hagadorn and Sue Goodspeed, both longtime residents of Johnsburg, opened The Secret Ingredient, the town's first organic/health food store. They offer goat cheese from Nettle Meadow Goat Farm, maple syrup from Toad Hill Farm, Adirondack Wildflower Honey from Johnsburg, Whitefield's Farm Free Range Eggs and the famous Oscar's Smokehouse products.

Hudson River Trading Company, owned by Laurie Arnheiter since 1997, also in North Creek, has a new addition in the back of the building showcasing locally produced food items, such as tapenade from Saratoga, salad dressing from the Speculator Inn, Hudson River Trading's own mustard and another section for children's and young adult books.
The lower level of the new addition will house the store's soon-to-be-built cafe and already features Adirondack prints in a new room. Hudson River Trading Co. is now selling it own line of rustic furniture.
