657 Main Street
Weston , Vermont
Tel: 802 824 3184's insider take:

Leave yourself plenty of time for perusing the wares of this Weston landmark (found in the center of Vermont, northeast of Manchester), whose old-fashioned appeal will delight even the most sophisticated of shoppers. Billing themselves as "purveyors of the practical and hard-to-find," the Orton family has operated this sprawling smorgasbord since 1946, selling everything from Prohibition-era Evening in Paris perfume and pleated muumuus to Hobo Soup and vodka-laced lemon cake. There are also more practical items, such as flannel blankets, gardening rakes, and even a mini elliptical trainer. But the main draw here is nostalgia. Among the wooden barrels, exposed rafters, and wood-burning stoves, you'll feel like a kid in a candy store.

Open daily 9 am to 5:30 pm.
