About Us

The Gifted Child started in a pushcart in the West Stockbridge, Massachusetts marketplace on Memorial Day Weekend, 1981. 

In the fall of that year, we moved into a storefront in Lenox, Massachusetts, sharing space with the Purple Plume. Soon, we outgrew that space and moved across the street to 69 Church Street and stayed two years before acquiring, and renovating, our present building at 72 Church Street.

Our Great Barrington store opened in the Barrington House on Main Street in 1994, and then moved into our Railroad Street store in May of 1996.
