Welcome to our online store! ShopCraftyYankee is an extension of our special store in historic Lexington, MA, the birthplace of American liberty. We will feature an ever-changing mix in our online store and hope you might also have the opportunity to visit us in Lexington.In 1994, I purchased Crafty Yankee, a local artisan shop that began in Lexington in 1980. The previous owners wanted to retire, but having developed a following of local customers, they wanted to find someone who could continue their legacy in the town. I was a new resident of Lexington, but not unaccustomed to the world of retail, having spent several years in senior positions at Dillard’s and Federated Department Stores. My marriage to a long-time friend and Lexington resident, Richard Fields, brought me happily to New England again. My goal in changing lifestyles was to find an environment that would allow me time to give something back to those less fortunate. That opportunity was Crafty Yankee where I could have my own business and support the community, celebrate the craftspeople and be a special gift destination for the customers.
Meet the special people that make our store wonderful!
Crafty Yankee showcases the work of many New England and American artisans, as well as fair trade and responsibly sourced small companies from around the world. Our extensive jewelry and fashionable accessory selections accommodate all ages and tastes, from traditional to contemporary. We are known as a favorite place to find creative gifts for hostesses, weddings, graduations, special occasions, gifts of appreciation, baby showers and even those very enjoyable small indulgences.
I look forward to your enjoying all of the special things that I've chosen for our online store and hope that you will find a memorable gift to make someone smile.
