We are back for our 6th visit to Stowe and made this one of our first stops! They have clothing (outdoor), Vermont/Stowe shirts, postcards, great selection of shoes, and some souvenirs. I bought my favorite pair of snow shoes here on a prior visit... Prices are fair on most things and we love the quirky old-fashioned general store feel. Today... More

A perfect place to pick up that vermont tee-shirt or winter hat. They have some stunning women's dress hats if you can swing 150.00 for a hat - go for it. Found an excellent metal cap gun pistol - if that's the item missing from your life. Check out the basement for 1/2 off shoes and clothes - not sure... More

Shaw's is the place for boots! Bought the new son-in-law Sorrels here on Friday. They have a very good selection of boots that are sturdy enough to keep you warm and dry in a Vermont winter. Given the fact that Shaw's is located in a tourist town, their prices are surprisingly fair, and many times lower that other stores. Last... More

Good quality, high-end clothing, if I did not live in Southern California I might have purchased a sweater but for an average of $260 it is a bit much when I can only wear it about four days out of the year. There were a few items on sale downstairs and I scored a summer blouse for only $25. Loved... More

Stopped by Shaw 's before leaving Stowe looking for some souvenirs and maple syrup. We were really disappointed. Not so much a General Store as might be found in the Adirondack's but more of a clothing and shoe store. I guess if you're looking for clothes and shoes you'll find them but not the quirky stuff and variety of everything... More

Nothing special really,the prices are rather high,but all the same worth a visit at least for people from Europe like us at least to buy some little Vermont souveniers.Not worth a special trip but why not to enter if you're already there?

Run of the mill items for either Vermont or other touristy areas around the country. Not worth a special trip and in general more expensive than items I have seen in other places.

This store had Life is Good clothing, a wide selection of boots and shoes, and your basic t shirts, magnets, and jewellery. Sale prices seemed good on the clothing.

Store is located on Main Street, Rte 100. This is a fun store. A good place to buy tee shirts and Vermont items. We always visit this store when in Stowe.
