Shop Local This Holiday Season!

#ShopADK - Shopping local can make all the difference to small business owners!

The holiday season has snuck up on us quickly this year, but there is still more than enough time to shop local and support your local small business owners. All through Hamilton County there are great options to find the perfect Adirondack gift.

Tracy's Rustic Relics

While Tracy's Rustic Relics has been a staple in Speculator for a while now, they have moved to an all-new location just up the street! Their new building houses not only Tracy's, but the Perks of Speculator coffee shop and the Lost in the Woods Candle Company are all under the same roof. There are lots of great gifts to choose from in this beautifully put-together store, but you can never go wrong with a gift card!
