Our Story

The New Englander®

Unique Gifts from the Six New England States.


Welcome to The New Englander, featuring unique products made in our six beautiful New England states:  Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont, for everyone who loves New England!  And when we say "Made in New England", we mean it!  You will only find products made here*. You will not find a coffee mug with “Welcome to Vermont” on it, unless that coffee mug was made in New England; authenticity matters to The New Englander!

Our goal is to bring a uniquely New England shopping experience to you, wherever you may be.  Fine craftspeople from businesses throughout New England design and make these beautiful products right here.  We feature home decor, fashion accessories, kitchen necessities, toys for kids of all ages, treats for pets, and more.

We hope you enjoy our growing selection and visit often. If you love New England, and you love New England products and craftsmanship, you will love The New Englander.
