Step back in time as you browse our aisles of long lost products that still work as well today as they did "back in the day!"

This is a must see, especially for those of us over 50. There are so many items they offer which are almost impossible to find anymore. i.e. Lifebouy soap, Jade East cologne. Charles potato chips, etc. The free cheese, sausage, dipand crackers sample are verty pentiful. The candy area would fill a small house on its own. Plan to spend... More

Although they sell a little bit of everything, I felt their prices were too high. The store across the street was more to our liking.

My husband and I actually came across the Weston store by mistake. When we first started dating we visited the VCS closer to Okemo on our way home from a day of skiing and thought it would be fun to visit again on our mini honeymoon to VT. We made a disappointed face at each other when we realized our... More

My wife and I were taking her parents on a Journey thru memory lane. My mother in law was born in this area and left when she was a little girl. 65 years later she returns with one request. She wanted to go The Vermont Country Store. Over the years she would order certain things from the store on line.... More

John, Your mother-in-law’s story is heartwarming, and I thank you for sharing it with others and with us here at the store. We love to hear how our visitors react to the store, after having received the catalog for many years. And because your mother-in-law once lived in the area, her journey down Memory Lane was especially meaningful to her.... More

I went to both stores the same day. One of the stores had a sales tent and well worth the visit! Hard to stop here and not buying something :-)

As a recipient of the catalog for many years it was fun to see the store and it is packed as full as the catalog. Fun items, lots of food items to try as well as Vermont items to buy. Some things are a bit pricy but a fun store to visit.

My husband and I had a great time looking through all the merchandise that is carried here, everything from older kinds of candies to household products which are now hard to find to hats and pj's. We then crossed over the drive to eat at the restaurant.

If you're familiar with their catalog you'll be thrilled with their store, with all the things in the book along with preserved meat and fresh cheese. They have samples of most food items, they've got a great candy selection and all the practical clothing they're famous for. It's worth the drive.
