The Mercantile is a gift boutique with a deeper story

Tucked away on New Boston Street, about a mile from the Woburn Mall, is a boutique with a twist, slowly getting known by word of mouth.

The Mercantile, a gift store founded about two years ago, is stocked with an array of “Made in America’’ handcrafted items: decorative pillows with holiday and friendship themes; baby blankets and gifts; embroidered table centerpieces shaped like swans for weddings or showers; and beaded jewelry with Swarovski crystals.
