Fiddleheads- A Great North Woods Shoppe

About Us

Fiddleheads began as an idea in early 2006, with the vision to create an artisan gift shop offering quality-handcrafted items to the local community and tourists alike. The items had to be not only of good quality and possess appeal they had to be created by American craftsman. Within that ideal, the focus was to showcase primarily New England and also New Hampshire artisans. There had to also be a responsibility to offer Fair Trade produced items as well as Canadian since the shop is located approximately 8 miles from the Canadian border. The toughest challenge was to be able to offer all of this at an affordable and reasonable price. The owners Ron and Bette Guerin do extensive research on a continuing basis to find unique offerings, traveling to different venues when the opportunity exists.

The shop opened on May 5th, 2007 and was instantly embraced by the local community. The community’s support has enabled Fiddleheads to continue to showcase affordable works of art and to grow its unique inventory. The shop offers “Artisan Spotlights”, which gives local artisans the opportunity to have a day dedicated to their craft and to meet shoppers on a one to one basis. The shop and its artisans have also used these opportunities to support local charities by raising money through raffles using items donated by the artisans.

Currently, the shop carries over 60 New Hampshire artisans and an additional 250 New England artisans. Produced items by American and Canadian companies continue to grow.

Fiddleheads features the CRAG (Connecticut River Artisans Group) Art Gallery.
