Getting out and about in the Mohawk Valley is something we love to do. Visiting the locally owned businesses, meeting new people, and enjoying all the Mohawk Valley has to offer. We appreciate all the small businesses that add to the unique charm and personality of each town and village.
This week we began at Olivia’s Happy Tails in Herkimer NY. Our Jack Russell, Jack, always enjoys visiting Olivia’s for his “Spa” day.
Everyone at Olivia’s Happy Tails just loves caring for and looking after all the pets they see. Jack is well cared for and loved by the staff. Our thanks to Colleen and her team for all they do! Jack really does appreciate you, too!
Next we headed to make some stops in Canajoharie, NY. Made a slight detour on the way and stoped at Highwheeler Coffee in Fort Plain, NY. We just love visiting Highwheeler Coffee and especially like to sit at the counter and watch “the magic happen” as the staff prepare the wonderfully varied, and delicious coffees. After enjoying a latte, Chai, and the Creamy Onion and Potato Panchetta, we thanked Becca for creating a peaceful setting to enjoy a few quiet moments and good conversation!
We continued along State Route 5S to Canajoharie.
As we came into town we visited with Picture Perfect Art Gallery and Framing.
This shop highlights local artists, and provides framing services to frame “just about anything.” The walls and display cabinets are full of beautiful artworks from Mohawk Valley artists. We met with one of the owners and we will soon have their listing up on Mohawk Valley Today.
Our last stop was to Lee’s Shops at Wagner Square on Church Street in Canajoharie.
When we walked in the door we felt the magic of Christmas! There is so much to see, experience, and find at Lee’s Shops. We soon realized we “needed” some Christmas decorations and found just what we were looking for! Having said that, this is a great place for grandparents of young children to come and explore. There are plenty of options available to share with grandchildren. We had a great time wandering through the shops and speaking with the owner Janet. Always a pleasure. You won’t leave empty handed!
Looking forward to our next venture in the Mohawk Valley and getting together with the Canal Side Inn, The Inn and Stone Mill, and the Cafe at Stone Mill very soon!
