Helen Thomas Simply Smashing Opens at 2 Main Street

Downtown mainstay Helen Thomas Simply Smashing gift gallery recently moved uptown. While still in Downtown Andover, the unique shop moved north to across from Andover Memorial Hall Library and Elm Square Oyster Company. New location, but the gallery still maintains its funky vibe. And it continues to offer all things beautiful for your home, body, and soul!

Downtown Andover Mainstay Maintains Funky Vibe and Local Offerings

Helen Thomas Simply Smashing has moved to 2 Main Street. And its front door now looks out at the historic Memorial Hall Library.

Look inside and you’ll see that the gallery maintains its funky vibe. And it still offers the familiar products you love. Local products like the rich-lathering Plum Island Shower Gel and soothing Body Butter. And the pretty-in-pink Pine Cone Hill bathrobes manufactured in Western Massachusetts.

Plus, Helen Thomas Simply Smashing is always good for picking up an Aunt Sadie’s candle with a soothing in-season scent. Like the Lilac Candle, hand-poured in Vermont, and infused with the scent of dreamy Lilacs on a warm spring evening.

New England Artists on Display at Helen Thomas Simply Smashing Gallery

Helen Thomas Simply Smashing features lots of New England artists. And their beautiful artwork made the move to 2 Main Street.

For example, you will see painter Stephen Young’s paintings prominently on display. The Maine-coast-based artist has Nantucket roots. And that’s why he named his Freeport Gallery ACK ME ARTS. Stop in Helen Thomas Simply Smashing’s new shop for a peek at his big-bold-and-colorful, coastal-inspired work.

You will also find the New-England-inspired functional art of Boston Salt at Helen Thomas Simply Smashing. For example, the serving board below which appears to have an Atlantic wave washing over it. A great gift for a friend with a beach house!

Keeping It Local in Downtown Andover

Local shopping fans will be happy to discover who took over Helen Thomas Simply Smashing’s old location. Elsie’s Pantry opened at 90 Main Street on Mother’s Day. And the new shop offers locally sourced products for your pantry, cooking and kitchen, and  entertaining. At least 70 percent of the Elsie’s Pantry’s products come from the “soil, kitchens and workshops of fellow New Englanders.” While the 30 percent that aren’t local are truly unique.
