There are places like this all over New England, and this is one of the better ones. Lots of edibles to choose from (homemade pickles, cheese, large variety of candy), candles, knick-knacks, a museum. Very interesting stop.

This store is OLD; it has everything in it you won't find anywhere else. The vermont cheese is a MUST buy! The store has been in the family for generations. These people can still add in their heads and come up with the correct cost!...More
