Maybe you don't have a tree yet. It's still early. Or maybe you don't put up a tree. But shopping for the holidays is in full swing here in White River Junction where local shops abound.
This year, consider shopping for locally-made items for the people on your gift list. Long River Gallery & Gifts at 49 So. Main Street in WRJ has art and craft items from more than 150 local artists and artisans to explore. Discovery is the name of the game here -- and it's great fun! Unique items, made by people who live in the Upper Valley, VT and NH, are the order of the day.
Our artists come from nearly every town in the Upper Valley: Strafford, Hanover, Norwich, Lyme, Hartford, Newbury, Thetford, Canaan, Orford, Fairlee, Windsor, Lebanon, Piermont, Plainfield, and very likely your town, too!
There's so much to see. We love to watch people's faces as they walk through our for for the first time. Surprise and delight are obvious! Here, you'll find jewelry, fine art of all stripes, craft items like pottery, bowls & cutting boards, wooden spoons, glassware from drinking glasses to vases, ornaments, sculpture, mobiles of all kind of animals -- including a flying pig! -- the VT Folk Rocker, the American Game Table, 3 and 12-bottle wine racks of cherry and granite, skincare from soaps to lotions and balms, hats and scarves, prints and photographs, more jewelry in all price ranges, cribbage boards, leather goods, purses, aprons, books by local authors for adults and children, felted objects of all types from coat pins to fairy houses, hand-blown glass, ocarinas, salt and pepper shakers, vases, VT maple syrup, buttons, locally-harvested honey, locally-made fine chocolate, and still there's more. This is a place well worth exploring for your holiday gifting needs -- and to treat yourself!
