Opening Day May 8....Come On In!
"Mmmm....it smells so good in here." That's usually the first thing anyone says as they enter Bay House Artisans. The smells of essential oils and herbs mixes with mellow music by Willie Nelson or Cowboy Junkies. Beautiful hand-made jewelry, pottery and sculpture line the shelves. The walls are filled with paintings and photographs depicting scenes from the St. Lawrence River and surrounding areas. Yes, Bay House Artisans, now in their fourth year of operation, is a one-of-a-kind delight in Alexandria Bay.
Regional Artists and Artisans
Bay House Artisans is a co-op made up of approximately 30 artists and artisans living and working either full time or part-time in the North Country. The shop is staffed by members of the co-op so while browsing through Bay House you will have an opportunity to chat with the artisan on duty that day.
Bay House has some special events planned for the summer including several "Art Walks" throughout the summer months. The Soldiers Art Show will be held on June 17 - 18 and
Pirate Week Activities for kids will be back again in August.
Bay House Artisans is open Monday - Thursday 10:00 am - 6:00 pm, Fridays and Saturdays 10:00 am - 9:00 pm and Sundays 10:00 am - 6:00 pm. Hours will change as we get closer to summer; the store will be open each day till 9:00 pm.
You can't miss it! We are right in the center of Alexandria Bay, the Heart of the Thousand Islands! Ok, I'll be more specific. It's the quaint old white house located at 21 James St. (the main street with all the shops)
