5 Wonderful St. Johnsbury Stores to Shop This Holiday Season

If you don’t get a chance to shop downtown St. Johnsbury very often, Small Business Saturday (November 26th) is a perfect reason to check the stores out. You will love the variety of unique gifts, many that are very reasonably priced and items you that cannot find online or at big box stores. Plus, you don’t have to get up at midnight to wait in line (bonus)! 
 

1.  Moose River Lake and Lodge















Chances are when you walk into the front door you will be greeted by “Nelly” (pictured) the store owner’s friendly dog. And if that’s not charming enough, the contents of the store will win you over. True to its name, this store has a classic “lodge” atmosphere with rustic houseware items, bear skin rugs, antlers and taxidermy. There is also high quality clothing and outerwear, jewelry, books, a kid’s corner, and an excellent selection of wine and chocolate.  Plan on spending some time as the store is large and bursting with great gift ideas – too many too list here! 


2. Northeast Kingdom Artisans Guild















If you’re looking for one of a kind, unique gifts then the Artisan’s Guild is a must-shop! The store is filled with a collection of handcrafted items from over 100 Vermont artists. Amazing prints and paintings, jewelry, pottery, ornaments, yarn, glass works, wood works, and so much more. Don’t forget to check out the back-room holiday exhibit when you’re there. 
 

3. Boxcar and Caboose Bookshop and Café















Shopping can be exhausting! Boxcar and Caboose is the store to get your caffeine fix! The cafe has a wide variety of tasty espresso and coffee beverages. You’ll enjoy browsing the great selection of books with latte in hand. Be sure to check out the Vermont section including books, Vermont Life Calendars, and Vermont handmade greeting cards. A great place to find gifts for the kids on your list with a nice assortment of toys. Another bonus; the colorful corner known as Hobo’s Candy Stop. Every stocking needs a little candy in it!
 

4. All About Flowers















You may have noticed this shop on Eastern Avenue especially since their recent storefront renovation. You will fall in love right when you walk in the door. There is much more to this shop than its lovely assortment of flowers. Beautifully arranged, it feels like a store that Joanna Gaines would visit. Candles, home decor, and a festive selection of ornaments, plus wine and gluten-free beer. A great place to pick up a Yankee Trader or secret Santa gift. 
Shop Local Saturday Special: 25% of wreaths
 

5. Sunshine Boutique and Jeweler















A favorite of the greater St. Johnsbury area for many years! If you’re thinking jewelry as a gift for someone but not exactly sure what, this is the place to go. The sales team at Sunshine is very friendly, helpful, and incredibly knowledgeable.  They will guide you in finding the perfect gift. The store also has a beautiful selection of pottery, clothes, lamps and much more.
 Shop Local Saturday Special: 20% off one item.
 
 
And that's just the beginning! There are many more wonderful stores in St. Johnsbury. Also, consider gift certificates to the local restaurants or movie theater. Happy shopping and have a great holiday season!
