Stowe does not offer much in the way of shopping, but Shaw's is right in the center of the village and has an interesting assortment of merchandise. Even if you do not need a thing, you'll find something at Shaw's!

Shaw's has everything from clothing to toiletries, souvenirs, postcards, magnets, shoes and boots, everything people need to survive Vermont winters and for the summer activities. Fun to walk through. Don't forget to pick up maple syrup!

What a fun store that had all sorts of outdoorsy gear, tourist stuff, and Life is Good in the basement. I was intrigued by the Vermont Made "Darn Tough" sock. Guaranteed to not wear out. They haven't had me wear them, so got a pair of those for mountain biking! We ended up buying a few things, even a nice... More

Shaw's is a historic general store in the heart of Stowe Vermont. In this location since the 1800's, the store caters to locals and visitors. From lovely souvenir trinkets to clothing for hiking and other outdoor activities, it seems Shaw's is the place to go when in this area. As with most stores in these little New England towns, Shaw's... More

This is a Country Store like so many around New England, but they just about everything a visitor could want. From clothing to remembrances.

It's a quaint old store with creaky floors. Excellent footwear, socks and t-shirt collection. Has a few souvenirs but mostly clothing and footwear.

Something for everyone: tubes for the river, shoes, hats, sweatshirts, t-shirts, maple syrup and more. If you forgot to bring it, the friendly staff will help you find it. Look for the bullet hole on the second story.

The store is nice and not too big. Of course you're in the middle of tourist area in Stowe, so the prices are almost double if you buy anything. I gave this an average rating because I considered the location so this is just like any other store in this area.
