Tax-Free Shopping

What’s your retail "happy place"? You know—the one you turn to when you're overwhelmed or bored or procrastinating. Do you escape by "window" shopping online? It's time to get real—in New Hampshire—where shopping is infinitely more blissful to do than to imagine. After all, even that big online retailer will charge you sales tax these days, but here in New Hampshire, we still say "no" to taxing purchases.

Whether you want to plan a girls' shopping getaway, an antiquing trip with your honey, or a solo trip to revamp your wardrobe, here's your guide to New Hampshire's most indulgent shopping pursuits.

NH Made. If Etsy is your guilty pleasure, you'll love shopping for New Hampshire–made products and gifts.

Outlets. You can't beat the deals at New Hampshire outlet stores—and when you can see, touch, and try on the merchandise, you avoid the hassle of returns.

Antiquing. Browsing on eBay just isn't the same as picking your way through a barn filled with treasures. And did we mention there's no sales tax?
