Rick Gallagher’s collection of authentic handmade tribal pieces is definitely worth visiting. In his cozy bohemian shop, the antiques dealer sells eclectic relics for every budget, including books ($5–$100), jewelry ($2–$1,000), musical instruments ($20–$500) and even weaponry ($50–$5,000). Gallagher travels the northeast to pick up interesting objects that originally hail from Africa, Southeast Asia and South America for his growing stock. Those with an eye for the unconventional will appreciate such gems as 20th-century metal boot sculptures ($250); East African trade-bead necklaces ($200); carved wooden paddles from New Guinea ($1,200); bags made of feathers, shells and bush string ($250); and antique artist chisels and knives ($5–$250).
