Wonderful Gift Shop

There's something here for everyone . . . from the art work to the locally made soaps to the jams & jellies -- and all of it delightful. Worth the stop.

The gallery staff were passionate about the current exhibit and the host of artists they represent. We couldn't escape their clutches and proceeded to purchase a fair amount… not too much but what we did find was a good cross section of work - some of the better work that we had found on our travels. Certainly worth running in... More

Local women artists are the specialty of this high quality gift shop in the heart of little Bethlehem. Everything in the store is made within 100 miles of the store. There's something here for anyone looking for a nice gift -- jewelry, pottery, quilts, painting, etc; as well as local wine and cheese. I bought two pieces of serving ware... More

Great gift variety here at the Marketplace. Whether you are looking for a quick gift or something nice for yourself it's worth a visit - the stock is constantly changing and many of the items are very different from what you will find anywhere else.

Great selections to be found here. Very clean and bright. The young woman who I believe may be the owner or one of was very nice and seemed to know each of the artists personally.

Wow - thank you - we really appreciate your review! Actually the store is part of the Women's Rural Entrepreneurial Network (WREN), a twenty one year old not for profit organization based in Bethlehem, NH. We opened the store in June of 2000 to provide market access which was the biggest challenge voiced by our members. The organization now has... More

Even though I live in the area, I still get so much pleasure in visiting Wren as often as possible! It amazes me that they have so many talented pottery makers and artists that allows for fun visits as often as once a month. This is my first place to go to when looking for a special gift; whether it... More
