The Andover Thrift & Gift Shop is featuring the unique creations of talented Artisans, in addition to their wide selection of women’s and children’s gently worn apparel and jewelry.

Need some fun stocking stuffers? Cheril’s Creations is offering dozens of gifts for the family and pets, right in time for Christmas. Check out her “Re-Use” Pouches, good for a multitude of uses. And they’re recyclable.

DSigns will showcase an assortment of exquisite one-of-a-kind hand dyed silk scarves made with natural dyes, and eco printed with fresh botanicals that are rolled onto the fabric. And for the admirer of fine crafted woodworks, check out the display of bandsaw boxes, desk sets, vases, and wooden utensils made from local woods, compliments of RJM Woodworks. Both of these fine Artisans will have their works displayed in the shop during the months of December and January.

Whether you need an outfit for the holidays, a gift or a card, we have it! Shop locally and support your community Artisans and the non-profit Andover Thrift & Gift Shop. Visit us Tuesday to Thursday from 10 to 4 PM, and Saturday from 10 AM to 2 PM. The shop is located beside the Andover Elementary/Middle School at 26 School Street.
