The Schenectady Trading Company is a local interest store retailing products that showcase the heritage and talent of Schenectady County. Think souvenir/gift shop meets indoor farmers’ market plus fresh coffee.

I’m very excited to share that mid-October 2020, TCards was officially stocked and ready to sell at The Schenectady Trading Company.  Caroline, the owner, is an amazing soul who cares about the community she serves. I first met Caroline when she opened her doors in 2019. I was excited to welcome her to Union Street and have the opportunity to browse thru her store.  Caroline had all the time in the world to talk and I remember being so inspired when she shared her dream for her retail space.  At the time, I had a space in the lower Schenectady City area so I never had the expectation of Caroline carrying TCards in her store.  Well, life threw me a curve ball and I needed to pull out of the previous space due to some pretty significant health issues. Honestly, things got pretty difficult for me and I nearly closed my business. I spent nearly 10 months wondering if I would design again and that’s when Caroline reached out to me.  I will never forget that day because without shame, I melted into my 5 year old self and did a small little dance in my studio after we sealed a sweet little deal.  I feel so honored to be part of The Schenectady Trading Company. Without a doubt, Caroline was instrumental in helping me find my creative self again; I have been designing again and most nights I giggle myself to sleep thinking of new ideas that might speak to you.  

Believe me when I tell you that when enter the Schenectady Trading Company,  you will feel right at home. There is something for everyone. Treasures are displayed everywhere you look, but don’t be surprised if you walk away making a new friend; I know I did and I’m forever grateful.
