There was so much more… hard to find cosmetics and other items. That is what Vermont Country Stores specializes in ~ If there is something you used to use and can no longer find, just ask them and they will try to locate it! They say they like the challenge.  A very nice place to visit – every one was so very friendly!Vermont country store, Vermont sight seeing, museum, Orton family, Vermont Country Store History
