This is a cute general store similar to several that cater to tourists across New England. It was still very organized and had a very nice variety of merchandise for souvenirs and would appeal to all ages. The staff was friendly and helpful.

This a great store with lots of Vermont items and lots of nostalgia. They also have a nice line of clothing and nice housewares. It's a great place to find a gift or pick up some Vermont Cheese and Maple Syrup.

Howard E. Shaw would be proud to know the store he founded in 1895 has evolved and prospered. When we visited it was packed with customers combing though a vast variety of goods. The ancient floor boards creaked underfoot reminding me of both the store's...More

A beautiful building from the outside, which means you can't resist going inside to discover more. Lots of quintessential Vermont gifts and souvenirs with friendly young staff behind the counter. Difficult not to find something you'd like to buy in here.
