This is where old products go to die -- but in a completely good way! All of the stuff you remember your parents using when you were a child, products that seemed to mysteriously disappear by the time you were a teenager, are to be found at Vermont Country Store.
Along with nearly-extinct perfumes, obscure soaps, unusual canned goods, Vermont Country Store also has an interesting array of vintage-inspired toys and home goods that will send you back in time.
For starters, their 100% cotton one-piece itemID=35873&itemType=PRODUCT&iMainCat=730&iSubCat=972&iProductID=35873">Union Suit, $22.95, is a perfect find for these awful winter months.
We had a Raggedy Andy doll when we were very small, and seeing Vermont Country Store's Raggedy Ann and Andy, $29.95, now just makes us all misty-eyed.
While we never had an Inchworm, $49.95, growing up (even though we wanted one), we can live through our son vicariously if we choose to buy one. And of course, no toy blast to the past could be complete without a Slinky, $9.95.
But really, for us the main attraction to Vermont Country Store is the high chance it offers to O.D. on nostalgia. Besides cool toys and odd knick-knacks, where else can you find Sweetheart Soap, Rosebud Salve, Jean Naté, a Bulova Travel Clock and a slide viewer all in one place?
