More Than a Store...
Artisan's has been a part of New London's quintessential Main Street community since 1975, and expanded from the front porch of Peter Christian's Tavern into the historic Kidder Building at the corner of Main & Pleasant Streets in 2008.
We are thrilled to continue offering and integrating even more local, more sustainable and green, more laughs, more talent, more diversity, more unique, and more amazingness.
Every single day we are inspired by the artists, guests, and customers who make what we do possible. I am moved and it is my great intrigue and delight to "discover" that within every person I have ever met, there lives an artist. Sometimes a seedling just sprouting, young or young at heart, sometimes seasoned. Sometimes bursting out at the seams; sometimes subtle and quiet.
The story of Artisan's is less about a "store," and more about the "store-y" of humanity, local and far reaching, that manifests in so many joyful creations and things within. The store-y of Artisan's is very much about the most extraordinary web that connects each one of us to another, and to our very humanity.
We are honored to have the opportunity to share those "storeys" with you, and we look forward to welcoming you. May every person who visits as a guest and customer return as part of our extended Artisan's family. We hope you find Artisan's inviting, vibrant, colorful, imaginative and inspiring!
Thank you for choosing Artisan's for your gifts, and for your patronage of small, independently owned businesses in tax-free New Hampshire!
