The Country Touch, Cold Spring, NY

If you are anything like Denise and me,

You love to browse the eclectic shops that line the streets of quaint little towns across the world.  Cold Spring, NY, has no shortage of these shops and although Denise and I drove through this town on a Monday (when so many of the town’s shops are not open.) we stumbled across this jewel, “The Country Touch.”  

If you find yourself in Cold Spring, NY

And, have a lot of time on your hands, stop by The Country Touch, at 97 Main Street.  Why do you need “a lot of time,” you ask? Because you will want to read every sign and believe me, there are a lot of signs to read! I especially took a walk down memory lane when I read the one that said: “Today’s Special, Eat It or Starve!”

This town is so cute,

You may want to take it home with you, and you can!  Just grab up one of the miniature replicas of the Cold Spring Shops and Restaurants!

Yep, they have a Facebook Page…

Remember, know before you go!  

Here are a few web links to aid in your “research.” A Facebook slideshow of our day in Cold Springs, NY and the Cold Spring Living web page.

The Country Touch has been in business since September of 1992. We have a huge selection of handcrafted wood signs,(CUSTOM SIGNS ARE AVAILABLE) framed folk art, quilted placemats, napkins and table runners, and many more accessories for your home.


There is street parking right in front of The Country Touch.

If you are mobility challenged, the Isles are ample for navigation with walker, cane or even mobility scooter.  The proprietor is very friendly and easy to strike up a conversation with.  Be sure to say hello for Denise and me when you go!

Let me share with you the most important thing I have discovered.  Where ever you go, whatever you see, share it with others!  Don’t be afraid to stop and smell the roses, to share a smile with a stranger, a meal with friends and build memories together that will last a lifetime!
