At Beekman 1802, we celebrate the ability to create something out of nothing which is why Corning, NY’s Historic Gaffer’s District is the perfect home for this summer’s pop-up shop.  What’s a gaffer? A gaffer is a master glassblower and a tribute to Corning’s glass heritage.

Corning is the home of the famed glass company of the same name as well as the home of the stunning Corning Museum of Glass, but even more importantly it is the home of an indelible community spirit to keep downtown business districts thriving.

The reasons for setting up shop in the “Crystal City” are crystal clear.  Take a photo tour below

I just received the goat’s milk rose soap. It is wonderful! My sister told me about Beekman and now I am reading Josh’s book, “Bucolic Plague”and I read parts of it out loud to my husband. It is such a great story. We bought 100 acres here in California several years ago without knowing a soul out here. Have made lots of friends and so glad we made that decision to move across the country. Best of luck to you both. Inspiring!


Please stay! Please stay! Please stay!! I have been to the store three times already, and am always looking for a reason to return. The shop is a perfect addition to Market Street!!

Hi, Cari. Thanks so much for stopping by. We are planning a meet + greet soon. Stay tuned to Facebook to find out date and time


Looks like a beautiful spot. The NYC site was only a month, wasn’t it?


You really need to do a pop up in Ulster County. I would recommend the village of Phoenicia which is near my home in Olive Bridge. A second choice could be Woodstock.
