This was one stop on our visit to Plymouth and it is a small house with spartan furniture and a few utensils used about the time of the pilgrims. Fitting for the times - it was a spartan life. It was still worth the very modest fee to show my teen child the very sparcity with which the people lived back then.

We walked inside and very much enjoyed the art work as well as the historic house. When we have more money we will look forward to coming back here to buy jewelry, pottery and more. Even though we didn't buy we felt welcome here to browse and would certainly return for another look next time we visit.

We love the Sparrow House! We live in the area and are members as it is a historical site as well as a fine craft/art shop. I go to the Sparrow House all the time, year-round as it has wonderful, well priced unique gifts, finely crafted jewelry, home decor accessories, art photos, paintings, handmade scarves, purses, you name it. It is a charming place in a historical building that deserves patronage and support by joining as a member and/or purchasing fabulous items here.

The staff is wonderful, dedicated, very knowledgable and helpful. They always remember us when we visit. They do fantasic gift wraping and make every purchase special, whether it is for yourself or a gift. It is hard to visit without purchasing something enchanting! If you come to Plymouth visit the Sparrow House - you will not be disappointed.
