Favorite ♥ Places: “Indian Pass Antiques”

Located in an Adirondack Mountain forest on Stewart Dam Road near Corinth, New York, is a charming little emporium filled with wonderful antiques and collectibles.

During our annual August vacation at our family’s Sacandaga Lake “camp,” my sisters, sisters-in-law and I always look forward with much anticipation to the short drive down West Mountain Road - destination: Indian Pass. When we arrive we always “ooh and ah” as we slowly drive down a lane edged by tall pines, ferns and wildflowers.

Finally, we scramble out of the SUV; walk by the moss-covered rock on which is perched the sweet little statue of the Indian brave and his squaw in a canoe; open the wooden screen door to this tiny shop – always warmly greeted by its friendly proprietress, Janice – and begin our enthusiastic hunt for wonderful antique and vintage items.

Invariably, each of us leaves with a paper shopping bag, embellished by Janice with ribbon and a sticker, filled with treasures such as vintage jewelry; silver spoons or butter knives; framed prints, needlework or silhouettes; china cups; old books; “camp” décor items; vintage kitchen utensils; little figurines; old sewing items; etc., etc.

…Only two more months...and thank you, Janice, for many years of wonderful memories!
