Showcasing Local Talent at the Clinton Street Mercantile

Thursday, December 12, 2019
Continuing to showcase local small businesses, today I take you on a tour of another downtown Schenectady treasure - Clinton Street Mercantile.

The Clinton Street Mercantile just celebrated its one year anniversary being in business, and judging from the crowd there last weekend, it's already a popular downtown destination.  Located in the historic Fitzgerald building at 148 Clinton Street, the Mercantile opened to give local makers a place to sell their talents and goods to the local community.
That group of makers is diverse.  From candy to jewelry, pottery to woodcrafts, leather to photography, clothing and textiles,  and much, much more, the Mercantile is filled with talent and quality products.  Here is a small sampling of what you'll find when you visit.













Aside from offering a variety of treats for yourself or gifts for that challenging person on your gift list, Clinton Street Mercantile also offers classes.  The day we visited, several women were learning how to make sugar scrubs.  Upcoming classes include hand stamped clay ornaments, a crystal wrapping workshop and later in January, an intro to embroidery.  I may have missed Small Business Saturday but it's never too late to support local, small businesses.  Head on over to Schenectady and check 'em out.   For more information, you can follow their Facebook and Instagram and check out their website too.  Links below.
Thanks for stopping by.  Come back soon.  I've got much more holiday magic to share including the Schenectady Historical Society's Festival of Trees.  See you soon for more Life As I See It.
