A Little About Us
Welcome to our online store! ShopCraftyYankee is an extension of our very special store in historic Lexington, MA, the birthplace of American liberty. Celebrating 40 years in 2020. We will feature an ever-changing mix in the online store and hope you might also have the opportunity to visit us in Lexington.
The Legacy continues: In 1980, three local Lexington craftswomen started an artisan and consignment shop which they named Crafty Yankee. When they decided to retire in 1994, they wanted to find someone who could continue their legacy. Resident Kathy Fields loved their concept and the fact that so many local customers wanted the store to continue, so she became the next proprietor. The store flourished for the next 26 years! When it was time for Kathy to retire in January 2021, she again searched diligently to find the next special group of people to carry on the Crafty Yankee Legacy. The Robbins Family, Bob, Melissa, Cooper, Madison and Griffin were found and purchased the business in February 2021. Their goal is to continue supporting the community, celebrating the craftspeople and offering special gifts for their customers.
