Local in Bolton Landing offers jewelry, clothing, gifts, and accessories with the shape of Lake George. Designer Sara Pfau can even design a custom piece of Lake George-shaped jewelry! Her brother, Domenick Pfau, owns Local. The store began sporting the Lake George decal back in 2013. But be warned - the jewelry designs are very popular! If you get one custom designed you'll likely be looking at an eight-week wait. In the meantime, stop by the store and see what else is available with the shape of the lake. Local is located on Karl's Korner Drive off Route 9N in Bolton Landing, near The Sagamore.

Sara Pfau is credited with being the first to incorporate the shape of Lake George into jewelry. Pfau looked to capture the shape of "her" lake and have it with her all the time. She went from designing it for friends and family, to creating custom-designed pieces that are sold through her brother's store, Local.
