On Location Shopping

Academy & Main won’t only be a gift shop - instead, and much like the intersection from which it draws its name, it will be a social crossroad unto itself. Visitors and natives alike will find something to love when perusing an array of eclectic items that line the shelves, and the hyper-local shopping experience will be guided by a series of mini-stores, each serving as a glimpse into a particular Adirondack niche.

Gifts for Everyone

From bespoke to beguiling, the variety of goods on display at Academy & Main promises to be a true testament to the intricacies nestled between the 6 peaks of the Saranac Lake mountains. From candles that will fill your home with the nostalgic scent of your stay to hand-blown glassware from local artisans, a carefully curated blend of authentic goods will await you here.
