The Adirondack Store & Gallery stands as an enduring presence in the heart of the Adirondacks, gracing the region since 1955. Its legacy extends beyond the mere trendiness of Adirondack products and rustic furniture; it has been a steadfast emblem of quality and authenticity for decades.
In 2016, Christopher English and Stephen Dori Shin acquired the company, based in Lake Placid, New York. Their transformative vision breathed new life into this Adirondack classic. A comprehensive renovation revitalized the original store, and a standalone design center was seamlessly integrated, marking a bold, exciting step into the future.
Christopher English, a seasoned art and antique dealer and his partner Stephen Dori Shin, a former professional ballet dancer with a long history in the fine arts, infused the business with a fresh new perspective. Their commitment to expanding the art, antique, and interior design departments of the company became evident in 2019 with the opening of a second Adirondack Store in Tupper Lake, NY. Housed in the historic Ginsberg Building on Park Street, it became a testament to their dedication to preserving history while embracing modernity.
The journey continued in 2020 with the grand opening of a third retail location in New Canaan, Connecticut. Located on Elm Street, with an expansive store front, it symbolizes their commitment to growth and outreach. Christopher and Stephen helm all three operations, showcasing their hands-on approach to management and to their customers. While crisscrossing the nation, they curate original collections that mirror their passions, buying and selling at antique shows, gift markets, and craft fairs.
The Adirondack Park, a place of enchantment, serves as their muse. Christopher and Stephen, with their finger on the pulse of the community, plan to continue to propel the Adirondack Store & Gallery into new markets.
The essence of the Adirondack lifestyle, marked by beauty and craftsmanship, resonates in their stores and transcends borders.
Our journey continues, representing the spirit of a place so many call home.
