Our Story

The Second Knob Gifts & Antiques is a father-daughter partnership, brick and mortar shop, located at 129 North St. in Dryden, NY.

We started our business in late 2010, finally opening our doors in Spring of 2011. For two years, we operated out of a 1200 sq. ft. shop in the Village of Dryden but outgrew that space and, in January 2013, we moved into our current location, which offers approximately 3600 sq. ft. 


We carry a large selection of primitive, country and Americana home decor and gifts. We pride ourselves in purchasing local and USA Made as often as possible. We also have a huge selection of unique and affordable antiques and collectibles in our lower level.

Throughout the year, we offer hosted parties, which provides our customers with an opportunity to earn credit toward their purchases. Hosts/hostesses invite friends and family to the shop (after hours) for a "private party." During the party, customers enjoy party-only specials and, often, a preview of coming attractions!

We also offer gift registries (for weddings, birthdays, etc). Customers interested in a registry may speak with Shana at The Second Knob.

We are diligent in testing new products and lines, to find what works best for our customers.

In February of this year, we welcomed The Secret Gem, a vintage clothing pop-up shop. This is the first time we've taken on a "vendor" and we look forward to what the future may bring with The Secret Gem and, perhaps, other pop-up shops.

In March-April, we plan on bringing in a selection of helium balloons, which are great as a stand-alone gift, or an embellishment. Balloons are a great attention-grabber for events and sales and we look forwrad to offering a nice selection for our customers.

Beginning in May, The Second Knob will kick-off monthly flea markets (being held in our huge parking lot). These flea markets will be open to vendors from across the state and are sure to attract a lot of attention! Vendoor applications will be available beginning in March/April.

We hope that you will enjoy shopping at our store or on our website and we look foward to hearing from you!
