Gillingham’s in Woodstock, Vermont, is hands-down the best general store I’ve ever been to—I discovered it when I was scouting for our Woodstock story (January 2013 issue). Not only does it have an entire aisle of made-in-Vermont products (think cheeses, maple products, coffee, ceramics), it has a stellar wine section (deals on bottles that usually only restaurants would get), and a kids’ toy and book area which occupies the little ones while you’re shopping. What’s also nice is that they have an online store, so you can get some sense of Gillingham’s, even if you have no plans to be in Vermont.
Love the coffee cups from Bennington!
I always find some product I’ve never seen before, like this laundry line from Nellies.
