Artisans Market

Featuring M.A.Designs


An unique shoppe of refreshingly talented artisans featuring M.A.Designs

Reciprocity, An Artisans Market

 Reciprocity - The practice of repaying, in kind, the treatment one has received from another. 

Reciprocity, the shoppe-

Madeline Ahrensfeld was the inspiration for the birth of Reciprocity, not only as a premise for a shoppe in Harwich Port, but as a mantra for The Ahrensfeld family's every day life. 

Maddie, of M.A.Designs, a self taught artist, began drawing at an early age. Her "heart art"soon evolved into unique stationery, personalized cards and gifts for loved ones.  Maddie and her mother, Becca began attending art shows to share Maddie's colorful creations.  It was the fellow artists and artisans,whom Maddie and her mom met along the way, that gave the family the idea to start a shoppe where Maddie's supporters could share their talents as well.  Although Maddie continues to participate in local Art Shows, the shoppe has become the hub for her art and other interesting art as well. 

Two showrooms-

Conveniently located on Cross Street, a half block off Main Street, you can browse the two retail spaces (one a 1920 store and the second a vintage barn that's has been lovingly brought back to life) filled with unique, beautiful and unusual items - all handcrafted by those people who have become part of our lives.  Looking for the perfect gift? Or want to treat yourself? Organic candles, beautiful jewelry, garden decor, metal works, items for your pet, hand blown glass, photography and so much more.
