Park anywhere in the downtown area and you will find three wonderful shops all within easy walking distance of each other: bowerbird & friendsGrove & Main Antiques and ReMarkable.

Open since 2007, bowerbird & friends is located in a wonderfully bright and cheery space in Depot Square.  The feel is upscale but accessible and we enjoy browsing through the spaces while watching the Nubanusit River flow past their back windows.  Each of the five dealers has a unique style ranging from farmhouse industrial to vintage 50s and 60s to Victorian.

Also downtown and easy to find is Grove and Main Antiques which yes…is at the corner of Grove Street and Main Street 🙂  Although the owner has had her own store for about seven years, she only moved into her current bright and sunny space in 2016.  This is a single dealer shop that features French and other European antiques, focuses on primitives and with everything from textiles to furniture.

Grove & Main Antiques

Just down the block from Grove & Main is ReMarkable, the newest antiques shop in town.  The owners have done a fantastic job renovating the space with natural pine wood floors and light colored walls that makes you want to stay and browse.  Nearly twenty dealers and 2800 square feet of space offers everything from vintage design items to home decor, furniture and more.

Outside of the downtown area but within a two minute drive in any direction you will find a handful of other wonderful antiques and consignment shops.

North of downtown you will find Hidden Treasures of New Hampshire and Our Town Antiques.

Hidden Treasures of New Hampshire can be best described as an “adventure”.  You can and will find just about anything in this 6,000 square foot, 30+ dealer shop: household items, vintage goods, toys, collectibles, artwork, glassware and much much more!

Our Town Antiques & Collectibles has been open since 2016 and is a multi-dealer shop offering a menagerie of items from collectibles to furniture and everything in between.  This is a fun shop to meander through with its dealers broken out into small rooms.  Just a heads-up, the shop is tucked into a plaza and can be missed from the road if you aren’t looking for it.  Just look for the “L” shaped Brady’s Plaza with the Dunkin’ Donuts and you will find Our Town tucked in the corner.
