Shopping at The Emerson
Enjoy Hudson Valley shopping at its best inside our Country Store, a collection of intriguing shops housed in the restored circa 1841 Risley Barn. While strolling along red brick floors and admiring hand hewn chestnut posts and beams, you’ll find a myriad of locally inspired items and gifts from the Catskills. Enjoy pastries, sandwiches, soups, salads and locally made ice cream at the Country Store Café. And, the Country Store is also home to America’s Largest Kaleidoscope and the Kaleidostore.
The Kaleidostore features a world-class collection of unique, hand-crafted kaleidoscopes. Whether you are a longtime collector, an admirer of the beauty and form of kaleidoscopes, or just passing through, we promise you’ll discover a little magic each time you peer into an eyepiece.
