Open 7 days a week!

Monday-Saturday 10-6

Sunday 10-5 

 

We’re here to help! Whether it's a birthday, holiday, "just because" or "just for me", we've got you covered with gifts for young, old, and in-between, including brainteasers, puzzles, games, inventive educational and developmental toys, baby gifts, humorous books, novelties, gourmet candy, cards, balloons, and on and on… Something for anyone and everyone!   

We’re happy to assist with any gift-giving conundrums or queries! Some of our items are on-line, and many more can be found in our store.  

Shopping for a gourmet? Check out our great cookbooks and fun culinary gadgets! Looking to spruce up a dorm room? Peruse our picture frames, wall décor, and journals (hand made and regular), or unleash your inner child with Schleich animals and Papo knights, dragons and other fantasy critters. 

We change about sixty percent of our items every year so you’ll always find something new and interesting.

 

You can pay for your chocolate and second-cousin Al’s ninjabread cookie cutters with cash or any major credit card (sorry, no barter system. We had to discontinue that after the sheep incident of ’09). 

 

 

Shameless Self Promotion

We’ve received kind words from the likes of the New York Times Travel Section, Playthings Magazine, we’ve been designated the “Gift Psychologists” by National Public Radio’s northeast station WAMC, honored by the State of Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism  with their “Hospitality Award” for, of all things, being helpful to visitors and customer service (they found us out). 

Some specific kind words from our customers:

"An oasis of excellent gift options!"

"Something for every budget all in one place"

"I have been voted ‘coolest auntie on earth’ several times based on the gifts they have helped me choose."

"I could spend hours here!"

"A great shop with a interesting collection of gifts! I can't tell how many items i picked up, read, and giggled at! This place helped do a chunk of Christmas shopping and laughing at the same time!"
