Village Emporium: Great Shop (Emporium)
Address: 199 Canada St, Lake George, NY 12845
This is just one of the MANY souvenir/clothes/tchotchke shops in the village of Lake George. It first caught my eye while me and Honey were walking down the sidewalk with ice-cream cones and I glanced in and saw a black and white striped dress. Black and white stripes being an obsession of mine, I decided that I would return (when I wasn’t loaded down with a massive ice cream) and look around. We did return the next day, and although the dress I had initially liked wasn’t really a style I could pull off, they do have those wonderful scarf-dresses that are so in this year. I was playing around with them, trying to figure out how to tie them on, when an exceptionally helpful sales associate walked over and showed me the different ways to tie it, and gave me a little brochure that explained them. She was not at all pushy, just very polite and helpful.
The customer service was exceptional, and the dress was a steal ($26! Full length). I’m not usually one for the souvenir shops, but this one was above and beyond.
Thank you, I hope this helps you plan your Lake George vacation in some small way. I should be adding more about our trip soon, so check out my other posts.

Lake George Kayak Co.: Great kayak info
Just want to acknowledge Jeff at the shop for all his info. We've been canoers and were looking into kayaks. Jeff explained the differences between the kayaks (uses, materials, prices). Unfortunately for him we've decided to just rent for the day wherever we are instead of buying, but Lake George Kayak rents out too so I guess it evens out.
