Well, this is sad. I was about to give a long overdue shout-out to A Little Touch of Country, a lovely gift shop in Herkimer, NY. Accordingly, I logged onto Facebook and went to their page for phone number, hours, etc. And I saw a post saying the store will be closed for the rest of the week due to a loved one losing his battle with cancer. Very sad!
However, the shop will re-open next week with new hours, so I will share the pictures I took the last time I was there and post about them again next week when I learn the new hours.
A Little Touch of Country has been in business a little over a year. I know this, because the last time I was there was when I saw on Facebook they were celebrating an anniversary. I stopped in and took these pictures. I also purchased a present for a friend who needed a little pick-me-up. I admit with some shame that this was probably a couple of months ago. Well, regular readers know I have been a bad blogger lately. I am trying to do better, hence this post about a local business.
I first discovered the shop even longer ago, when I was in a rare run on that side of town. I usually stay on the north side of State Street, also known as Route 5, not from any feeling that it is the “right” side of town but because it is a large, busy street, not easy to cross. In this case, I was glad I did and soon made my way back to shop.
I do not go to Touch of Country very often, only because I do not shop for this sort of thing very much. Quite frankly, I have too much stuff in my house and need rather to get rid of things. On the other hand, perhaps I will get rid of some stuff so I can go back to A Little Touch of Country and purchase more!
A Little Touch of Country is located on South Washington Street in Herkimer, NY. Oddly, their Facebook page does not mention a number, but you can’t miss it. Their phone number is 315-219-5650. I’ll share their new hours as soon as I know them!
