162 Main Street, Northampton, MA
Have you ever wanted passionately to find the perfect gift for someone, only to realize with dismay that you'd probably never find a smirking chimpanzee pillow? The Artisan Gallery comes to the rescue when you simply must locate an over-the-top, grin-inducing gift that shouts: "I went to the ends of the Earth to find this!"
Luckily, you only have to go to Main Street in Northampton--not the planet's boundaries--to discover an amazing line-up of creative and thoughtful gifts. This wonderful Northampton shop specializes in "eccentricities," including locally created items like Easthampton, Massachusetts, artist Mark Brown's inventive mixed-media clocks. Although the chimp pillows didn't call to me, I almost bought a big, stuffed pillow with bold felt letters that read: "Be Nice or Leave."
