A Brief History of Remarkable Things

Beginning as Shimmering Glass in Waterbury Center in 1983, we purchased and merged with Stowe Craft Gallery in 1995. Soon after, we opened our sister store, an interior design studio and showroom, on South Main Street in Stowe. In 2018, we rebranded the craft gallery as Remarkable Things at Stowe Craft and the design center as Remarkable Home, to better reflect our unique creations and the experience that awaits.
