Little Touch of Country Gift Shop now open in Herkimer NY


Visitors to the new gift shop in Herkimer will find just what the name on the sign suggests – a Little Touch of Country. 

Kitchen items, plaques, candles, lamps, furniture and pip berry garlands and wreaths – all with a country look – are on display throughout Barb Weber’s shop at 312 S. Washington St., Herkimer. 

And she’s hoping customers will enjoy coming to the shop as she does, although she admits opening a new store during a pandemic has not been easy.  

“It was very scary to open,” said Weber. Still, she felt Herkimer did not have a lot to offer along this line and opening a gift shop was something she had been wanting to do.  

The Touch of Country Gift Shop offers a variety of gifts and items that will appeal to anyone who likes a farmhouse look, according to owner Barb Weber.

The Herkimer area resident previously worked as a buyer and manager at the Arcangel Gift Shop in Utica and, more recently, worked at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s Utica office, which closed due to the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“It’s a wonderful organization,” she said of the center. “I met a lot of wonderful people. But every day there was a sadness.”
