A groovy alternative to North Conway's outlet shops is the offbeat White Mountain Artisans Gallery
housed in a renovated barn. Head to the silo to walk the spiral staircase around a huge sculptured metal tree. Brick walls and granite pillars make the downstairs showcase look more like an Alpine living room than a display room. Fine furniture, mixed media, and contemporary landscape paintings fill the place. White Mountain Artisans Gallery, 3358 White Mountain Highway (Route 16), North Conway, 800-451-0255, whitemountainartisansgallery.com.
