A visit to the Annisquam Exchange (32 Leonard St., Annisquam) takes you out of the more frequented areas of Gloucester and Rockport and into the beautiful, historic, small-town atmosphere of Annisquam. Not that downtown Gloucester and Rockport aren’t charming, but Annisquam seems to me to have an even more magical air about it.
The Exchange is a consignment store that sells antiques, china, silver and collectibles (as described on their website), as well as some other cards, souvenirs, tee-shirts, etc. It is open from May to October, with hours that vary according to the season, clearly laid out on the website.
Here are a few photos from my visit!

The Annisquam Exchange will be opening for the spring season in a few weeks, and since we all follow your blog we were wondering if you might post a quick blurb about us. Not sure if you typically post things like that but thought I would ask. The info is below if you can do anything with it:
The Annisquam Exchange, 32 Leonard St., will open for the spring season Friday, May 20. Hours are Fridays and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. until June 11. The Annisquam Exchange, a community-based nonprofit organization, offers antiques, collectibles, linens, cards and gifts. Call 978-281-0358 or email email@example.com.
