This chic home goods store is easy to miss, hidden in a picturesque little courtyard just off of Broad Street downtown, but not easy to forget. The Commons, owned by two friends with a background in textile design, is an inspiring collection of handmade home goods art in the form of ceramics, woodwork, candles, metal work, woven goods and more. All products in The Commons are made in the U.S., and the store keeps a close relationship with its artist-vendors. The products are pricier than those you'd find at commercial, chain home goods stores, but that's the idea behind The Commons: paying a higher fare for goods and gifts that are made in your community, and made to last for generations.
