It is more like walking into an art gallery than an gift shop.
Annie*s offers a beautiful selection of jewelry, glass pieces, barware, wood, metal, clocks, cards, Judaica, and fiber. Ted and Kate Hochheiser have developed over 22 years of relationships bringing together talented artists and the local community.

Bartlet Mall, a gorgeous historic park at the intersection of Pond and High Streets, is a great place for ice-skating, sledding, and enjoying nature. Its scenic views provide the setting for a wide variety of popular community events. There are wide walkways and a series of footpaths that border the Mall and lead to the Frog Pond. It has also become a highly photographed area by many local photographers.
