STEP INTO THE PAST
The Vermont Country Store is a step back in time to the days when general stores where the purveyors of practical and everyday necessities that Vermonters needed.
Vermont still has over 100 general stores in operation and are all worth a visit. The Vermont Country Store, the most notable of them all, offers products from local suppliers and around the world with that touch of nostalgia. Rediscover many of the brands from the past that are hard to find, but are still produced and work.
Classic board games, clothing brands from the past, shampoos, razors, brushes and much more, all displayed in a post and beam building that says Vermont.
Opened in 1946 by Vrest and Ellen Orton in the village of Weston, Vermont. The store became the first restored rural general store in the nation.
The Vermont Country Store is a “Must Visit” when experiencing Vermont.
The Vermont Country Store is owned by Lyman Orton and sons Cabot, Gardner. and Eliot. They are 7th & 8th generation Vermonters. Adhering to the old-fashioned values set forth by Vrest and Ellen they take pride in being the purveyors of the practical and hard-to-find.
Going to great lengths to find products that aren’t sold anywhere else, they are stocked to the rafters with quality merchandise.
