Shopping in North Conway




Featured Shop – It's my Girlfriend's Consignment Boutique

It's My Girlfriend'sWant a real-life guilt trip? You'll find just that at It's my Girlfriend's Consignment Boutique, 2757 White Mountain Hwy. Prices here are so low you'll think you've robbed owner Alice Spears. I found a brand new Coach bag for $20, a pair of Ann Klein leather sandals for $16 and a pair of never-worn black suede pumps for $7. It took two friends to pull me away. The store has amazing accessories, color-coordinated displays and more red-lined items (50 percent off) than you'll find on a math test. Facebook the store and find out dates for the next "Fill a Bag for $20." Call me giddy with guilt. See www.itsmygirlfriends.com.

Gone (Fly) FishingCast away fears about what to get for Father's Day and pop in to North Country Angler, 2888 White Mountain Hwy. Totally dedicated to the art of fly fishing, it's here where you can buy reels, vests, fly lines, waders and boots, vests and more. A four-hour guided fly fishing tour with lesson is only $125, www.northcountryangler.com.

Don't fish? Why not pick up some gorgeous flies and display them in a shadow box you can buy from Vintage Frameworks just down the street. www.vintageframeworks.com

Psst ...Running low on "shopping fuel"? Head to Vintage Baking Co., 64 Kearsarge St., for melt-in-your-mouth cranberry scones, buttery homemade cookies, hearty breads and top-shelf wine and cheese. Don't leave town without saying "hi" to "Spunky," the real-life frog that has lived at the Toy Chest, 2703 White Mountain Hwy., for more than 23 years!

Unique & LocalEssence of Art, 10 Seavy St., is simply irresistible. Every item in the store is handmade by local weavers and potters with developmental disabilities. The showroom is like walking into a jelly bean jar, full of colorful mini pottery houses ($10-$25) that make stunning gifts, especially for a first-time home buyer. Look for hand-woven placemats, napkins, table runners and more. The best thing about shopping here? Half the price of each item goes back to the local artist. Special orders welcome. Call (603) 356-9045.<
