The Warren Store in Warren VT {Date-Trippin}

I’m a sucker for covered bridges and general stores.  The nostalgia of it all.  This week for a date-trip he took me to both with a stop by The Warren Store.

Stepping inside is like stepping back in time, albeit with a more sophisticated flair.  Rows and rows of mass-produced boxes and cans are replaced by charming locally made treats and carefully curated favorites.

Standard stark beverage coolers are replaced with beautiful antique ice box refrigerators full of interesting brews and flavors. And the deli and baked goods section is just a dream.  We can’t seem to leave the place without a handful of impulsively bought randomness each time we visit.

This week’s randomness: a bag of mixed maple nuts, a homemade whoopie pie, and a highly touted bottle of Lawson’s Finest Liquid (a hard to snag local jewel and hands down my favorite beer sampled in Vermont so far).

Swing by their online store for your own randomness like a Keep Vermont Weird tee or a bag of penny candy. Or come pay us a visit, and we’ll be happy to drive back over the bridge and show you the way.

Until we date-trip again,

A + H
