Below is a press release from Advokate Owner Kate Austin-Avon.

GLENS FALLS, NY — Kate Austin-Avon is excited to announce the return of her shop, The Advokate Boutique! Kate is an entrepreneur, arts activist, writer and artist who has been operating her marketing, web, design and PR firm Advokate, LLC since 2010.


The Advokate Boutique is a store of locally-crafted gifts and accessories that was formerly located at The Shirt Factory. It will be opening for the months of November and December as a temporary pop-up shop at 16c Exchange Street in Downtown Glens Falls. The Advokate Boutique is located upstairs in the same building as Milk & Honey, across from Rock Hill Bakehouse Café, in the Advokate business studio.


The Advokate Boutique‘s hours of operation will be Thursdays and Fridays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. from November 3 to December 23.


“I am thrilled to be a part of the Downtown Glens Falls retail scene for the holiday season,” says Mrs. Austin-Avon. “It’s so important to me to keep my dollars local when I can, and I think that like-minded folks will enjoy finding locally made holiday gifts on their Downtown shopping trips. Glens Falls just keeps getting better and better! I love being so close to everything in my new location.”


In addition to Mrs. Austin-Avon’s own mixed-media artwork and “trashion” jewelry, The Advokate Boutique will carry knit and sewn stuffed animals, children’s dress-up crowns and animal masks, silky batik scarves, quilted purses, books by local authors, hand-poured soy candles, affordable original artwork and local interest note cards, hand-thrown coffee mugs, locally sourced lavender gifts and more — all handmade by artisans in Glens Falls and close nearby.
