Getting you in the Christmas spirit is one of our favorite spots in North Creek: Poiema, a store with many fans here in Schroon.
It’s dedicated to home and beauty with one-of-a-kind found objects, pottery and handmade all natural soaps, lotions, and bath salts. And this Saturday they are hosting a “Make Your Own Wreath” Event.
From Poiema: Learn to craft a natural holiday wreath with locally-gathered greens, pine cones and other natural materials. Class includes everything you will need to make a beautiful wreath. Feel free to bring materials to personalize your projects. Pre-registration required. $20 includes supplies. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org".
While there, check out their organic, hand blended teas from Divinitea as well as learn about the special art classes they regularly hold.
In the mood for gift shopping? They have a unique selection of handcrafted, all-natural soaps, salt scrubs and candles as well as found objects for the home, pottery and fiber art from local and international artists, and children’s clothing and toys from around the world.
