Village Photo is a wonderful asset to our town. The work they do it stunning, from family portraits, weddings, animals and student portraits. The atmosphere is relaxed, the best way to get great shots. They have very high quality digital and film equipment., and the owners are very talented photographers. I have used them many times, and have always been happy with the results.
Village Florist is the best florist in our area. The selection is wonderful, the staff friendly and helpful, and the owners warm and welcoming. I have gone in at the last minute to try to get my thoughtless sons date a corsage on PROM day and they have accommodated me. They also carry gifts, cards and balloons. This is the first choice in florists in our area.
Cunningham Laundry is one of two laundy mats in our town. Cunninghams is large, clean and conveniently located. I had occasion to use this establishment when my machines broke down. I dreaded it, after my experience in pay laundries in the past, but I was pleasantly surprised It was air conditioned, had enough machines to accommodate many patrons. The prices are about what I would have expected to pay. This is a great asset to our town.
The Drive In Movie store has become a staple in Ballston Spa. The huge variety of VHS and DVD movies, along with Playstation, XBox and Nintendo games compromise one of the best collections I have seen. The store is locally owned and operated so you are assured of a good experience each time you rent. They have various specials, one being 5 for 5 for 5, 5 older movies for 5 days for 5 dollars being my favorite! They have rent one get one free Mon. through Thurs. also. They have very good hours and a drop box for returning. I would recommend this store.
Excellent Adventures Comics and Collectibles is just the business our small town needed. They have been in business several years, and have been popular since their opening. They sell much more than comics. There is a great selection of cards, role-playing games and figurines related to these activities. The kids in town love this store.
Pizza Works is yet another long time business in Ballston Spa that everyone has come to count on. The location and variety cant be beat. They serve HUGE round sandwiches, the bread like a pita, made from pizza dough. The pizza is very thin crusted and delicious. They often have quite a variety of again, HUGE slice available. The drinks are in bottles and you serve yourself. If you prefer to dial for a pizza or other food, friendly free delivery is available.
The Clothesline is Ballston Spa answer to big box store as the only way to purchase affordable clothing. They carry many famous brands and slashed prices. There isnt a huge selection, but it changes quickly so it changes. It is worth checking out once a week or so. The staff is friendly, and store is decorated nicely and it is located in our bustling downtown area.
On a little side street in Ballston Spa, Low Street Antiques is located. They serve a different cliental than the larger stores. The merchandise is smaller and quaint. It would appeal to a more feminine group of shoppers. The windows are decorated quaintly. The prices are reasonable and the staff is helpful. It is one of the gems of Ballston Spa. Good take a look!
The Westchester House Bed & Breakfast is breathtaking. The first impression is of the lovely gardens outside of this Victorian House. It is just like you are stepping into the past. The rooms inside do not disapoint. There are only 3 rooms, but they are something special. The beds are 4 poster, with old type quilts on them. Flower abound. Rates run from $95 to as high as $250 during the Saratoga racing season. Breakfast is served each morning and is as nice as the surroundings. I would recommend this B and B.
The work that Beth Pachter does is unique and beautiful. She takes a lot of time with each of her clients to ensure that they are comfortable in the studio or on site at your special occaision. The work she does is not your run of the mill photo studio quality though. The prices are high, but to be expected for someone with a Master Degree in photogrpahy. This is not someone most people would use 3 times a year, but for those extra special occaisions in your life. Her work speaks for itself.
