“Quality Crafts Inside a Quaint Store- Excellent!”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

I'd reccommend the Handcrafter's Barn to anyone, weither or not they like crafts. Everything here is.. well, crafted. You'd think that means lower quality, but I thought the crafts' quality was pretty good.
Make sure to pick up something for everyone back home- the crafts in this store make great gifts. I found a lot of personalizied things- from personalized teddie bears to personalized room signs.
I liked the variety of objects in the store. There were a few wooden chairs, shelves, and things like that downstairs. Upstairs there were smaller things, like little decorations you'll love!
The prices in the store were affordable and reasonable. The service was great too! The people were extremley pleasant to us. They seemed really happy that there were people with kids there. The store is usually pretty quiet-- you might see one or two couples or few people by themselves.
You'll find this shop among others, and near an ice cream stand! Stop by this shop- you'll be glad you did!

“Great store, friendly service”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

This is a must stop in store where you will be greeted by the owner's friendly dog too. There's all kinds of things in this store that you won't find at your regular store. The quality and cost of items are very good in this store.

“Excellent craft selection”
Reviewed July 5, 2011

My wife and I stopped here looking for pottery and were pleasantly surprised to find a nice selection. The store has a wide variety of other craft items if only our suitcases were big enough. Best of all is the products are reasonably priced.

We were leaving North Conway when we spotted this place. It was worth the stop. We found gift items not available elsewhere.

“Always our first stop in North Conway”
Reviewed June 1, 2008

The store is great. They have 3 floors filled with crafts, art, photography, jewelry, you name it. The girls plan a shopping trip every year and the Barn is our first stop. Its a wonderful place to find a gift for just about anyone, and the staff is really nice too. Don't forget to say hi to Cornbread, he's the shop dog, and he's the cutest dog you've ever seen.
