Canal Towne Emporium is truly a lovely small town experience! I love walking around the many rooms, and checking out the unique items!
I personally never leave empty handed, and ALWAYS get many compli...ments on the things I buy.
The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable.

Absolutely love this place. Quaint, old fashioned sells one of a kind items. Their candy wall is overflowing with new and old favorites. Pickle barrel always full. Jams, Jellies, and spices galor...e. Old Welsh cookies available. Candles and soaps a many. Hard to find collectibles and toys. Baby section for that new family member. Eclectic clothing for the season. Christmas items and trinkets. Sometimes during spring and summer they even have Vermont cheese for sale at the checkout counter. Once they even had some cut with crackers and relish for sample. Worth a stop for anyone from anywhere. See More

This store is pure magic! Old fashioned candies you haven't seen since you were a child! Gourmet jams, jellies, preserves, chips, dips, crackers, spreads, you name it! Unique gifts for everyone on yo...ur list and in everyones budget! Magical, musical dancing clocks, jewelry, candles, an amazing Christmas shop, (Halloween too!) nostalgic, glittery, light up and "personalized" ornaments galore, too much to list! My favorite place to go all year, but especially during Christmas. Enjoy their festive light show outside at 7pm during Christmas. Just an added bonus. Then have dinner at Danny's (Irish pub/restaurant) or Gotta Luv it Pizzeria! The best. See More

Visited recently with my sister and loved it! Picked up some fig preserves and apple butter, maple drops, salt-free soup mixes and a lovely calendar. My kind of store - could have spent hours and hun...dreds. � ⌚�Maybe we cab go back at Thanksgiving if the weather is good! See More

Adorable little store, a little something for everyone! Just wish getting to the upstairs were handicapped-accessible. I could have spent a LOT more money than I did! Service was amazing - even got... a jump-start from Lyman when our car battery died (our next stop was Wal-Mart for jumper cables). I can't wait to go back, hopefully before Christmas! See More

Great shop if you are looking for that something special for yourself or as a gift. Love the customer service that is now missing in the larger stores today. Always a pleasant experience.

History Photo of the Week: Ice block cutters out with their tools. Although it looks like they are by a stream, we're guessing it's near Masten Lake, as that's where all the other ice block cutting photos we have were taken.

History Photo of the Week: One of the Wurtsboro Post Offices, around 1900, we're guessing. Is this the building across the street from the Village Park, where the Yoga Studio is now? Looks similar but without the front porch.

History Photo of the Week: This week's photo has multiple elements. First off, it's a photo postcard with a 'latch" which opens up to a series of smaller photos. The picture itsef (with a 1905 patent notice for the latch and photo) shows the original Wurtsboro train station.

History Photo of the Week: A bit too early for January, but here's some Spring plowing (can't get here soon enough!). Not sure if this is in Wurtsboro, but are fairly certain it is a valley photo, given that it's by Koonz. Any ideas?
