This Old-Fashioned Trading Post In Vermont Is The Last Of Its Kind

Though there’s something to be said for mega-malls, big box stores, and next-day delivery, nothing beats walking into your local general store and picking out exactly what you need by hand. This shop in Vermont has been serving customers for more than 200 years and they’re not stopping any time soon.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
