Retail Rising

ADK ArtRise — an educational art studio with a passion for helping people of all ages and abilities find joy in the act of making — aims to revamp their retail area and convert to an online, automated inventory system. These improvements will allow the studio to offer a wide variety of materials and supplies, while providing more consistency in their offerings. Your pledge will help bring a fresh, new shopping experience to downtown Saranac Lake!

Creative Haven Makeover

Close your eyes and picture a space where people are tackling their DIY projects or taking headshots for their portfolio. Where they are working on their computers or in a meeting. A fun space where community members can be creative, productive, and supported. This project will allow Main Street Exchange in Saranac Lake to be more than just a consignment store, but indeed “Your Slow Fashion Headquarters.”
