Summer comes with many gatherings: graduations, barbecues, reunions, birthdays, and just plain Happy To See Yous. Some are traditional gift-giving occasions, and some become them just because you love the people in your life.
You want to give something special, something meaningful, something beautiful! But where to begin?
Take a walk through our Silver Seasons garden and find something that speaks for you.
Our Silver Seasons case offers many charming options no matter who is on your list. Each piece is styled after a plant through a molding and casting process. From the daintiest every day rings to bold statement necklaces, these botanical bits have hidden meanings that make any of them a wonderful gift.
Associated with mothers and motherhood, these African Violet earrings make a sweet gift for a baby shower, your own mother, or someone who has been like a mother to you.
Irish Blackthorn trees are believed to have protective properties and were even home to faeries in Irish folklore. This Irish Thorn bracelet is a safe bet for anyone who has a strong protective energy or needs a little extra protection.
Europeans in the middle ages believed thyme brought courage to the wearer. This Petite Thyme necklace makes a great gift for someone starting a new job or for a recent graduate starting the next chapter in their life.
Perhaps the meaning matters less than the inspiration. If your recipient is an art school graduate or a budding artist, look no further. Many Silver Seasons pieces are inspired by famous works of art. Your recipient can take a little piece of the museum with them anywhere they go.
Sunflowers have become synonymous with Vincent Van Gogh’s name through his paintings. His first major encounter with them was in Arles, France when they decorated his friend Paul Gauguin’s vacation room in 1888.
These Daisy earrings are inspired by Georgia O’Keefe’s Yellow Hickory Leaves with Daisy. The painting is intended to hold the viewer’s attention, as will these earrings.
And of course there’s no shame in giving gifts based on aesthetics alone! There are so many gorgeous designs available, you’ll surely be able to find the right gift for your recipient.
This masculine Birch Bark cuff dresses up the wrist of the fashion-forward logger or landscaper in your life.
The Autumn Leaves bib necklace is perfect for your friend who just can’t wait for Autumn no matter what season it is.
A sweet adjustable Blueberry ring for the sweetest little berry you know.
Give a Silver Seasons gift and watch the joy grow. We can help you find the perfect gift for any occasion in-store or online.

Our Plans and Protocols:
We are asking that all customers wear a mask upon entering our retail locations. We are also requesting that all clients either wash or sanitize their hands upon entrance.
All our remarkable team will be wearing masks at all times while at work. Staff will also continue their rigorous personal hygiene regimen that was in place previously. Frequent and vigorous hand washing throughout the day, temperatures will be taken before coming to work and not coming to work if they fell ill in the least bit.
Cleaning will occur multiple times a day at our retail stores. Thorough cleaning will happen before and after retail hours as well as throughout the day on high touch surfaces and other highly frequented locations in both our locations. Pens, credit card machines, door knobs, etc will be sanitized after every customer and use. We will also be using a sanitizing steamer on all clothing and furniture after being tried on or tried out.
We have new “traffic patterns” in each retail location to help customers navigate the store with proper social distancing protocols being adhered. We will be requesting that customers follow the directional signals to keep themselves and others safe. We have a 6 person maximum capacity in Remarkable Things and a slightly higher capacity at remarkable Home.
For the time being, our restrooms will be closed to the public. We apologize for the inconvenience. There is a public restroom next door at the Maplefields Mobil gas station, as well as a public restroom available along the Mercantile building on Main Street.
We will be encouraging that all payments are conducted via credit or debit cards.
You can still call ahead (802-253-4693) or place an order online and request for a curbside pick up. Complimentary gift wrapping upon request. Please detail when you would be planning to pick up the piece if the order is placed online in the notes section of the check out process.
We also have new business days and hours of operation (please take these new hours and days into consideration when requesting a curbside pickup):
Remarkable Things will be open Wednesday – Monday (closed Tuesdays) 10am to 6pm
Remarkable Home will be open Wednesday – Sunday (closed Monday & Tuesday) 10am to 6pm and by private appointment. Please call Susan at 802-371-8931 to schedule a private appointment.

Vermont – home to The Green Mountains, copious amounts of maple syrup & craft beer and provider of so much inspiration for many of our Vermont based artists. We pride ourselves in carrying as many local Vermont artists as we can. The uniqueness in materials, vision and presentation of each piece is unparalleled. We can’t think of many things better than receiving a handmade gift from Vermont. We may be biased though. Below we created a Vermont handmade holiday giving guide for your viewing pleasure. (more…)

If you guessed false, then you guessed right! Only about 20% of all businesses are owned and run by women. Remarkable Things at Stowe Craft & our sister store, Remarkable Home, are one of those 20%! Here’s another one. (more…)
Stowe Craft Gallery is excited to present the new Vermont state lazy susan in partnership with Sticks Object Art and Furniture out of Des Moines, Iowa. For years we have offered Sticks pieces to our customers, and we are over the moon excited to have a lazy susan made by Sticks of our very own!
The amazing artisans at Sticks along with the staff at Stowe Craft Gallery teamed up to brain storm the perfect Vermont state lazy susan. Sticks has created several state lazy susans over the years, but most have been done for states in the midwest. But who can blame them, being from Iowa that is their bread and butter! So, we put our heads together and wanted to show all the beautiful seasons of Vermont on a single lazy susan. (more…)
We are excited to welcome a new jewelry artist to Stowe Craft Gallery- Rene Escobar. We found Rene’s work while at the Winter NY Now show and knew it was something special. His beautiful craftsmanship is easy to see- realized in darkened silver, yellow and rose gold and then sprinkled with diamonds. We picked several bracelets, rings and earrings that we can’t wait for you to see. We are adding his pieces now to our website but in the mean time they are all available in our gallery.
