This is shaping up to be a bad blogging week. Never mind why; explanations are so tiresome. As regular readers know, I like to post every day. So let us get in with the post.
This is one of the pictures I took at Showcase Antiques of CNY in Little Falls last Friday. It has nothing to do with the article I was working on for Mohawk Valley Living magazine. However, Schultz and Dooley, there could be no possible objection.
And here they are in person. Debbie Guile, one of Showcase’s owners, told me that these steins were originally produced only for merchants. However, they were so popular, they soon were made for anybody to purchase.
After talking about these, Debbie speculated that I would soon be ready for a beer. You bet I was! Perhaps I should go on a brewery tour at Saranac. I went on it years and years ago, when it was known as the Utica Club Brewery. But as Shakespeare said, what’s in a name?
Here is an outside view of Showcase Antiques of CNY. Lots of fun stuff!
So I give another shout-out to a local business. And I mention beer. Not bad for a Wuss-out Wednesday, I say.
