A step back in time in the Adirondack region!

There is a small hamlet at the foothills of the Adirondacks that is such a treasure.  I spend several weeks there a summer at our camp on South Colton, NY and just love it!  It resides on the Raquette River and has so much to offer. 
The photo above is a wonderful  shop that I like to frequent.  It is the 3 Falls Antiques and Collectibles shop located at 3912 Route 56, South Colton, NY 13687!

It you like antiques or just something fun and different this is the place to shop.  The inventory is always changing and you can find everything from used books and art to Victorian items.  They even carry Alpaca products!  You can find information at  or by contacting Judy, the owner, at or 315-262-2166. 

I have a couple paintings there featuring local sites as well as magnets and postcards celebrating South Colton.  One of the paintings I have there is of the charming Catholic Church we sometimes attend.  Unfortunately, it is being closed for masses as of Wed 6/23.  As it stands now it may still be open for funerals and weddings.

St. Pauls's Catholic church has serviced the area for 110 years.  The closing is devastating to the community and the last Sunday service yesterday was very emotional.    It is such a pity that it has come to this.  The church was built of hand hewn lumber from the area over a century ago.  To read more you can check out the article here
This is one of the postcards that I designed for the area.  This is actually my picnic table at camp, but it is very typical of the area.  Fall there is spectacular!!
