About the Finger Lakes Store
The purpose of The Finger
Lakes Store is to create a revolutionary system through which the
artists and artisans of the world can display their fine works to a
global audience of prospective customers. The Finger Lakes Store
does not charge artists any fees for listing their items on the
website. Furthermore, artists remain fully independent--they are
free to raise their prices, lower their prices, or remove their
items from our website. By cutting out the long strings of
middlemen, The Finger Lakes Store allows both consumers and artisans
to get the most out of each and every transaction.
The Finger Lakes Store is a
unique Artist Gallery and Gift Shop. Our inventory is full of fine
and functional craft, unique gifts, interior design accessories,
furniture and contemporary designer jewelry. We want you to know
who you're buying from. We want you to feel that attachment to the
product and to the hands that created it. In the spirit of the
Internet, let us bring you together.
The Finger Lakes Store is
located conveniently in the heart of the Finger Lakes, with offices
in Ithaca, NY, the home of Cornell University and Ithaca College,
and an office in Canandaigua NY, with Kodak, Xerox, and RIT all
within a short distance. We are a simple internet store and family
owned. Our home is just a short distance from three of the lakes
themselves, Cayuga, Seneca, and Canandaigua lake. The company is
owned by partners that were born and raised here in this beautiful
Local but the Finger Lakes are known
around the world.
Our little shop here in the
heart of the Finger Lakes has been recognized by local and regional
craftspeople as an outlet for each artist to display and sell their
items without the hassle of maintaining their own site. This
allows us the flexibility to advertise locally and around the

world. We hope you will find our Finger Lakes Store a fun resource

What so special about hand-made?
Almost all of our items are
"Made in the Finger Lakes" or surrounding areas, many items in this
collection are original designs by a local artist. Each piece is
also made by the artist in their own studio. This means the artist
has a passion for their piece, putting their heart and soul into its
creation. But the magic does not end there. As a hand-made piece is
used and lived with, it changes. It may be just a small daily
pleasure, but as these keepsake’s are handed down, they become
infused with both the artist's vision and your fond memories.
Your satisfaction is always important to us!
Thank you for Shopping
