Some great new shops opening in Nashua

The League of NH Craftsmen opened a new store at 98 Main Street in Nashua on Friday. The shop is run by juried member Ruth Boland and will offer a variety of locally-made crafts. Check out the article in the Nashua Telegraph on the new shop.

3 Basketeers Bowtique is open for business at 175 Main Street, selling custom gift baskets among other gift items (including Miche handbags, which are probably one of the greatest inventions known to man). Store owner Allana Johnston recently transfered the shop from Tyngsborough, Mass. and is excited to be a part of the downtown community as well as one of the stops along this week’s annual Taste of Downtown.

The Steez Gallery, a “functional glass and art gallery,” is opening this weekend at 85 W. Pearl Street.

For locally-made soaps and such, visit the newly-opened Soap Bar at 111 Main Street.
