Adirondack Living TV's Jeff Fraser meets up with Henry Caldwell of Black Bass Antiques in Bolton Landing, Part 2.

If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Kenyon Simpson, he’s reason enough to stop by the shop. A retired educator and proud owner of Aggravation Acres, Kenyon can often be found manning the fort while Henry is on the road. He is a delightful fellow whose in depth knowledge of the region and its rich history is fascinating.

Ladies, don't let first impressions fool you. There's more to Black Bass than old fishing tackle and outboard motors. If you're looking for either a unique gift or authentic Adirondack decor for your own home or camp, you need only ask Kathy (Lamb) Conover for some suggestions. As personable as she is knowledgeable, Kathy can assist you in finding the perfect accent piece - be it a period painting, souvenir paddle or vintage child's sled to sit beside your fireplace. Black Bass features a little bit of everything Adirondack.
