The Vermont Country Store, first established in 1964 in Weston, Vermont, is an American landmark of old-time, hard-to-find ‘country’ products. The proprietors, the Orton family, have a 60-year commitment towards providing people with durable merchandise, and authentic handmade (as opposed to mass-manufactured) items to offer a unique shopping experience for Vermont Country Store customers.
Vermont Country Store sells pickled goods (all-natural) in Vermont Country Store-labeled jars. These are one of the specialties of the Vermont Country Store, as well as the toys for all ages—many of these also handmade originals of the Vermont Country Store. The store carries items for every season, providing ‘summer’ toys and foods during July, and in August switching the focus over to ‘fall‘-centric apparel, foods, and original items. They also carry ‘Yankee Bargains’, which is essentially a play on the historical nickname for northern United States citizens (of which Vermont is as far north as the U.S. goes). These ‘Yankee Bargains’ are typically the most reduced prices in the entire Vermont Country Store catalog, and are most often offered before the transition into a new shopping season (from summer to fall, for instance, all the summer apparel would appear on the Yankee Bargains section before they stop selling them in favor of the fall apparel).
Vermont Country Store features the host of old things however goodies” — perfume of the 1920s, and also the hearing aid compatible phones as well as footie pajamas. (Even catalog hating curmudgeon Rooney will love it!) It has the gift suggestions for grandchildren: The record players, beloved Big Wheel, board games. In this extra special In Catalogs, take trip back in proper time to the era filled with the bedspreads, elevated waist underwear & booze filled desserts, in the gallery that starts below.
September is the Vermont’s 8th Independent Country Store Month, and dedicated to the picnics, parades, gatherings, as well as celebrations of diversity of the Vermont products, and all surrounding the Vermont’s historic country shops. Alliance’s fifty member shops are holding one month of the product tasting, which includes cheese, syrup, honey, milk and ice cream, as well as celebrating with banners, balloons, picnics, artwork contests, and barbecues. Already the leader in giving home grown goods, Alliance has launched the product label, which includes the quality items like soaps, sodas, bread mixes as well as condiments that are available through the members stores. Most sophisticated business in the Vermont Country Store might be that the cracker barrel stronghold of the mature timey goodness also known as Vermont Country Store. At time when most of the real in Vermont Country Store are having the hard time to stay open, look past cheese, crackers, and barrel and you will find the complex, and rich family owned retailing business.
