At Wines of Wine OT’s polished, granite-topped wine bar, wine connoisseurs pour small sips of vintages from Six Hands Winery and Sorelle Winery. Catering completely to diehard oenophiles, the storefront stocks a vast inventory of handmade wine-barrel furniture. Artisans dismantle barrels and reassemble them into Adirondack chairs, cocktail tables, and fire pits. Additionally, they stock hundreds of white oak wine barrels, which customers can repurpose as home decor or fish-shooting galleries.
High-quality gear and apparel from renowned outfitters such as Rossignal, Merker, and Tecnica line the racks and shelves at 4 Seasons Sports, formerly known as the longstanding Dobler’s Ski Cottage. Here, outdoor-sports enthusiasts can locate attire in the form of goggles and boots to protect them from the elements, such as wind and the tears of lonely snowmen. They can also lug existing gear to the full-service shop, where professional technicians ready their skis and snowboards for jaunts down nearby mountains.
Inside Bunches of Beads, visitors might get lost. It's not that the store is giant. In fact, the space is rather cozy. But the trove of multi-colored beads, chains, charms, and supplies is sure to bewitch any DIY-jeweler into a state of wholly positive disorientation. Inside their wooden display cases, strands of freshwater pearls and rows of tiny seed beads provide inspiration for a new necklace, bracelet, or beaded beer koozie, while tools such as rentable micro torches encourage crafters to complete a project. You can also start a project in one of Bunches of Beads' classes, which range from beginners beading courses to wire-wrapping and repurposing vintage pieces into new works of wearable art.
