About Us

Notown Goods Front Door

Notown Goods is an independent gift shop focusing on products made by artists, artisans, and small producers in the United States, while sourcing unique pieces from around the world. By supporting locally made, ethically made, and handmade goods, every purchase makes an impact on the life and work of an artist, artisan, or maker. Each piece is selected based on quality, design, and originality.

Leanne Boudreau, owner of Notown Goods, has a background in gallery and museum curation and museum store management. She owned and operated Loomination, a handweaving business, from 2010-2021.

Notown Goods is named after Notown, a late 1700s settlement in what is now part of the Leominster State Forest, spanning the towns of Sterling, Princeton, Leominster, Fitchburg, and Westminster. It is here in the woodland of North Central Massachusetts that Notown Goods has made its home.

Our product offerings include ceramics, textiles, wood, blown glass, jewelry, home décor, greeting cards, candles, bath and body, and specialty food. We also have a section devoted to baby and kid's gifts, with apparel, accessories, and toys for babies and toys, books, puzzles, and DIY kits for kids. 

We vary our displays seasonally focusing on holidays and occasions such as Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Spring and Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Graduation, Teacher Appreciation, Pride, Memorial Day and Independence Day, Fall and Halloween, and Christmas and Hanukkah.

Leanne and Kim

After more than 5 years weaving full time and working with gift shops, specialty stores, and museum shops, Leanne (right) was inspired to open a shop of her own with the mission of supporting American craft and small business. 

Also staffing the shop is Kim Tremblay (left), Leanne's mom, who is a recently retired Nurse Practitioner, grandmother, and quilter.
