    I've gotten their catalog for many years. I don't order often though. they have lots of old fashioned things and candies we never see anymore in stores, etc.

    This is where a lot of people get their dry irons. Also just saw a post that they have the light flannel blankets for summer use. People seem to like ordering from them.

    I have ordered from Vermont Country Store before. It has been in business many, many years.

    I have ordered from Vermont Country Store, and items have been as represented. Tad pricey, but if you can't find it anywhere else, it's a solution.

    I live about eight miles from their Rockingham VT store and 20 miles from the main store in Weston. The company was started in 1946 by the Orton family and their children still run it as far as I know. They carry excellent quality products, but their prices are somewhat high. Their claim to fame is old time stuff that you didn't know was still available, like Fuller brushes and vintage style kitchen items, toys, candies, and Vermont made cheeses. They have an outlet area at the stores, so if you're there you can find a few good deals. I have heavy, insulated canvas type drapes in my bedroom that I got there half price. If you buy something and are not happy with it, you can get good customer service on returns. They do their shipping from Manchester VT and if you call, you'll talk to someone right here in Vermont. No outsourcing to India. I just looked at the website and they also have some outlet bargains there, too. It's not WalMart, and most of us around here are very glad of that. Some of their products are hard to find elsewhere.

    I did a study last year on Percale vs. Egyptian cotton sheets...Percale are those nice crisp 100@ cotton sheets that we used to get years ago. And that led me to THe vermont country store too. Boy they are pricy. But if you've got the money go for it..I'm sure they will last for years.
    I did however find 100% Cotton Percale Sheets by Cannon at Sears for a much more reasonable price. I liked the white pair that I bought, but hate the dark burgandy that I bought as it tends to pick up lint off the cotton blanket i have on the bed that is light in color. I am pleased with the construction of the sheets and the hand as well.
    I did have the opportunity to go to the Vermont Country Store while touring New England last Autumn. It was fun, didn't buy anything...just a little candy. They had some very well made items for top dollar and some items that were just plalin money wasters.

    There are some really nice quilt shops in Vermont, too. I'm sure some people here can advise you.

    I have purchased percale sheets and flannel sheets from them in the past. I love them. Yes, they are pricey, but they are made in the USA. I have returned something also and these people are wonderful to deal with. It is also amazing to have the phone answered should you need to call. I also purchase my husband's sugar free dark chocolate almond bark from there. He loves it.

    They have nice things but the prices are high. If you find something you like, Google it and you may find it for less elsewhere.

    I've been to the store, have bought from them, and am about to place another order online. I'm happy with their service and merchandise.

    I used to go to the main store in Weston, I think it is. Loved that store. Yes it is pricy, but you can find things like the flat dry irons, no steam holes. Haven't been there in probably 20 years so I can't tell you anything up to date. Was just looking at one of their catalogs in December, wanted to order some items but since they were for myself my budget didn't allow at Christmas time. If you ever are near one of their stores stop in. Good Luck.

    I agree with LynnVT. I go right by there every year on our VT Shop Hop tour. I also order from their catalog. It is fun to go to Weston to the old store. I love hardwood floors and they have them. My DIL comes up here from PA every year and makes sure to stop there and King Arthur Flour. Down the road from the store in Weston is a wonderful quilt shop in Londonderry. There are a couple more quilt shops down that way in Wilmington and Chester. Weston is a nice town with B&B's and a wonderful Playhouse. Fun place to go and visit.

    I've ordered from them. Pricey but they have things you can't find anywhere else - old-time goodies.

    Have ordered from them for many years, not a lot because a bit pricey. However, the things they have are ones you won't find anyplace else. Love Tangee Lipstick. Bought it since I entered high school and believe me, it wasn't anytime near!

    More than 20 years ago I order a bunch of their terrycloth bath towels. Excellent quality - still using them. Ditto for some cotton tablecloths. I have friends who swear by their products. I think you can safely order from the catalog.

    Bought DH a warm flannel robe. Great quality and it has worn and washed well. I didn't think that the cost was too bad either.

    I LOVE their flannel sheets. I have had a couple sets for 3 and 4 years and they have held up great. They are warmer than others I have purchased. As others have said, they are pricey, but then again - you get what you pay for.
