Explore the writings of Women of Note host, Jerrice Baptiste!

Handmade has evolved over its 40 years in business, but at its heart it has remained the same.  It has always been about people, relationships and creativity. In the early days, it was about giving the local emerging arts and crafts movement a venue. It grew and changed because our customers wanted to have more thoughtful options to shop within their community. Our goal has been, and always will be, to meet those needs.

Whether vintage or old-style new, we stock our historic 1855 shop with things that don’t go out of style—products you’ll still be happy to have in 40 years. This new kitchen store, at 2635 Route 23 (telephone 518-325-7000), offers all the cookware, tools and gadgets that any home chef could possibly hope for, but what sets us apart is our two beautiful teaching kitchens (top of page).

Custom Made Jewelry: Our talented team of goldsmiths can design and make any piece of jewelry for you. Our on-site custom workshop is headed by David A. Walton. David is a graduate of SUNY New Paltz, receiving his BFA in Metals. He also worked as a stone setter and fabricator making high end jewelry for Tiffany & Co.

Expert Repairs: All repairs are done on premises by our team of goldsmiths and master craftsmen. Your jewelry will be returned to you in better than new condition with a fresh polish and no evidence of a repair. You will never see evidence of the initial break or the resulting repair; if you have ever had repairs done and you can see these things, it has been done wrong. We can fix other shops' bad repair jobs!

We can size rings up or down, stretch rings, re-tip prongs, replace broken stones, solder broken chains, restore antique jewelry, re-rhodium "dip" white gold, restring pearls and more.

There is no charge for an estimate. Repairs typically take about a week or we offer a while you wait/ same day service for a little extra.

Started in 2004 I Must Garden was formed by a Master Gardener unhappy with the repellents on the market. Having a vast experience using all sorts of products and remedies to keep her garden thriving she knew there was something better. After years of experimenting and testing I Must Garden sprouted. With customer feedback to help us grow we've established a thriving business based on customer service, hard work and dedication to fellow gardeners. We believe in truth, honesty and the customer is always right. While much of our work is done in a lab, it all begins in the garden & ends in the garden. And that's where we test our products - in real gardens, under real conditions. From repellents to garden tools, from birding products to gardening accessories to gifts for that special gardener.
