I’ve had such a wonderful experience from going to the store to ordering by mail!
Come by, say hi, and see all the handmade awesomeness we have in the store. If you can’t make it out, no worries you can shop for select items in our online Etsy store and have it shipped to you anywhere in the world. A word of caution, you’ll probably find something you’ll fall madly in love with and have to have but you deserve it, am I right?

What Our Customers Say
I was excited to hear about The Makery, because while I don’t live in Manchester anymore I want folks there to succeed. When I finally got to visit the store, it exceeded my expectations, which were high. The decor is charming and comfortable, with the merchandise varied, interesting, and well displayed. I bought some handmade soap and a pair of lovely handmade earrings. They also featured treats from a local farm, which were delicious. I will definitely be back. It’s well worth the effort.
First of all the store is unique and gorgeous, the second you walk through the door. Secondly, there is a wide variety of merchandise in there that is bound to please everyone, such a great selection. I purchased a gorgeous vintage looking Clay Co Tigers shirt. It’s soft and the printing is of superb quality. I also bought a gorgeous throw for such a great price. The atmosphere is awesome. Great job Jessalynn and Kevin, you nailed it!
Absolutely one of the best stores I have ever been in.
