My husband Steven reminded me that I neglected to make a blog post about one of our adventures in Vermont, a visit to The Sugar Shack.
We almost always hit this place when we are in the vicinity. I was especially anxious to get there this time because I wanted post cards. Steven was anxious because we were out of maple syrup (or maple syrple, as I like to call it) ( with a nod to the late, great Roger Miller).
You can purchase many things at The Sugar Shack: cheese, mustards, jellies, donuts, cookies and other yummy stuff. Also t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats and other touristy stuff. Steven has previously purchased Vermont shot glasses, and we are the proud owners of a Sugar Shack coffee mug featuring Shack, one of the owner’s yellow labs.
We chatted with owner Kim Hawley, and she posed for us with this photo collage of both her dogs. You can check out many pictures of the pooches on the Sugar Shack Facebook page.
The Sugar Shack is also the home of many displays from the Norman Rockwell museum. We have purchased coffee mugs, prints, and post cards of work by that wonderful American artist.
We had a fun if short visit. I got my post cards and some yummy donuts. I look forward to our next visit to Vermont,
