Adirondack Books, Gifts & Apparel

One of the most unique features of Charlie Johns Store is the “center aisle” where you’ll not only find a vast assortment of housewares, hardware and camping supplies, but gift items, books and clothing too!

Largest Selection of Adirondack Books Around

The Adirondacks is an area of New York that’s steeped in history and tradition. Many great works of literature about the Adirondacks from authors like Barbara McMartin and William J. O’Hern entertain locals and visitors alike.

Charlie Johns has a comprehensive selection of books written about the Adirondacks, from non-fiction to tall tales and fiction, children’s books to historical works and field guides. In fact, we offer more than 300 book titles for you to choose from.

But that’s not all you’ll find in Charlie Johns’ vast book section. We also carry maps, trail guides, stationery, postcards and greeting cards!

Souvenirs, Gifts and Apparel

Or need some warm gloves and hat for the winter?  We strive to be the most convenient, one-stop shop around, so we proudly offer a variety of gift items, candles, sweatshirts, t-shirts, puzzles, games and more, so you don’t have to travel out of town.
