Shopping at the Local Works Marketplace at WRENShopping

You won’t find cookie-cutter shops here, but you’ll probably find a cookie cutter shaped like a moose or a bear. You’ll find antiques, outdoor equipment, the works of local artisans, specialty gift stores, and much, much more. Add in welcoming, walkable downtowns and friendly shopkeepers who provide exceptional customer service and you’ll soon find reasons to return again and again. Parking is free in most towns, with on-street or easily accessible parking nearby.

There’s nothing ordinary about the shops in northern New Hampshire, and like the rest of the Granite State, shopping here is tax free! Visit our Tour Our Region page for more information.
