More Shopping in Manchester!

Manchester, Vermont, sits in the southern area of the state, among the Green Mountains. A small, quaint destination filled with both history and nature, it’s a fantastic place to visit for those seeking a quieter, low-key vacation with plenty of upscale amenities and cultural activities. Beyond visiting the Lincoln Family Home and the Southern Vermont Arts Center, however, you should take your time to explore the town’s shopping options as well.
Here are six unique boutiques and shops to be sure to add to your itinerary.
If you find yourself in need of some new outdoor wear for exploring the Green Mountain State (or just some comfy, weather-ready attire for walking around Manchester), head to The Mountain Goat. The locally-owned outdoor clothing and gear outfitter carries all your favorite brands, such as Patagonia and Marmot. The store also offers convenient rentals for activities such as snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

But if you’d rather be in the kitchen than in the mountains, you may find more to love at Vermont Kitchen Supply, the store for people who love to cook. Also locally owned, the store offers just about everything you could need to make your next cooking experience both easier and more enjoyable — and if you’re not quite sure what you need, the knowledgeable staff can help you find it.
With a history stretching back to the 1840s, this eighth-generation, family-owned storefront offers men’s and women’s apparel, as well as Vermont-made goods and household items. Find favorited brands, such as Darn Tough Vermont and Kuhl, but also unique-to-Vermont gifts and souvenirs.

Sabi Mercantile, named after the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, is a homeware store and apothecary offering high-end home goods to the discerning shopper. From the perfect gift for a loved one back home to the perfect little treat for yourself, you’ll find something you’re sure to love at this one-of-a-kind boutique.
Don’t think that because you’re in Manchester that you won’t be able to also find a little authentic taste of Italy. The Italian Market offers imported cheeses, pastas, wines and more, so you can make your own Italian feast at home (Or why even wait until you get home? Ingredients this delicious require whipping up a quick meal in your vacation rental!).
