A Visit To Long River Gallery & Gifts

Long River Gallery & Gifts, located in rural Lyme, NH is operated by Dave and Lisa Celone. If you haven’t stopped in to check what they offer, we highly recommend that you do. Easy to find, bordering the Connecticut River alongside Vermont neighbor town, Thetford.sandy at long river gallery and giftsBud and I were able to meet with Dave, tour the shop and have to say we are..VERY impressed with not only the selection of gifts and artwork, but the quality offered.  Well done you guys, we are thrilled to be one of your chosen woodworkers.

Lucky for us, Tracy Gillespie was shop sitting on Saturday, so we were able to meet her. Hi Tracy!

Sandra’s hand crafted designs are built around the stones/gems she chooses and states that she is inspired by nature. Who’s going to argue? Her work shows it, thoughtful and stunning.

John creatures sculpture art in various sizes using copper and metals. The bikes shown below are just one of his many, many designs.  A fabulous gift idea for the person who has everything, or a collector? Yes, we think so.

Guess what? Our friends Lada and Lenka – Route 4 Glass Blowing – who are also located in historic Windsor, VT. have pieces available at Long River.  It’s always fun running into an artist that you know.
