It is our highest priority to make sure that you feel safe and welcome while shopping with us at Remarkable Things and Remarkable Home. Second, of course, is ensuring that you receive the fantastic service that you have come to expect from us. We have been working tirelessly to ensure all the necessary measures are in place in maintaining proper protocols and cleanliness of our retail locations to the highest standards to keep our customers and staff safe. We want to be clear and transparent with you on our procedures to make sure that you all feel comfortable and welcome shopping with us. We can’t wait to see all our friends and familiar faces (with a mask) coming thru our doors again and perusing all our remarkable things! We have taken the following steps to ensure your shopping experience is as safe and worry-free as possible.
Remarkable Home at 34 South Main Street
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.
Thank you so much for supporting our small business over the years – we wouldn’t have done it without you, our loyal and loving customers! We can’t wait to see you all again soon. In the mean time, take care and be safe!
It is no secret that we are a fan of remarkable things; gizmos, gadgets, jewelry, art pieces, wall hangings, custom tables, and every bit of joy that catches our eye. That thrill of the unique doesn’t end with what we stock our stores with, it extends into this place we call home. If ever there was a place to call remarkable – It is Stowe, Vermont!
Remarkable Stowe: Winter Carnival
From top to bottom, Stowe is filled with all the charm and personality you would expect from a small town. One of our signature events, the Stowe Winter Carnival, is no different. Each year people wander through our streets, admiring businesses and general stores and restaurants decked out in glittering lights as the snowflakes fly by. It is a celebration of Vermont, our artists, our community, and our winter. This is one of the most magical weekends to visit Stowe and one of the highlights is the ice carving!
Wall art features a range of artists including Ryan Fowler. Various dogs balancing beer on their noses will serve as inspiration for this ice sculpture option.
Ice Carving in Stowe
The Stowe Winter Carnival is always a favorite of both locals and those visiting. When the town bursts to life in the middle of the wintery cold, you’re going to notice. When dozens and dozens of glistening ice sculptures are made live and in person on every street corner, you’re definitely going to notice.
It is always exciting to have our very own ice sculpture to welcome winter joy and this year, we want to let you in on the backstage bit of fun! Not only can you watch the ice turn from a square block into a work of art, but we want you to help decide what it will be! We will be operating polls on our social media accounts so be sure to jump in on the fun. Learn more about the options below!
Ice Sculpture Option One: Ryan Fowler
Ryan Fowler is a phenomenal artist that we are inspired by every day. His art prints hang from our walls and hurry out the door with so many customers that fall in love with the quirky, wholesome, down-home feeling of his art. In honor of his work, our love for dogs, and Stowe’s craft beer culture one option for our Ice Sculpture is a Labrador balancing a beer on his nose! Check out more of his work.

Ice Sculpture Option Two: CJ Hockett
Another artist who continues to catch our eye is CJ Hockett. His wildlife photography lets us peek at part of nature that often moves too quickly for us to truly appreciate. One of our favorite pieces of his work is of a Snowy Owl taking flight. Wouldn’t you love to see that majestic owl come to life from a block of ice? See more of the work that inspired us.
Explore Stowe this Winter
We hope you’ll have a chance to vote in the comments on Facebook or join our Instagram polls. If not, stay tuned for more information on what majestic sculpture will be made for us. All around Stowe you’ll be able to see the work of amazing artists and currently we are scheduled to have our sculpture begin at 2pm on Friday, January 24th. We will have sales, deals, and all kinds of fun happening inside so be sure to stop by and say hello! Visit our store online.

If you know Stephen Fishman, you probably know that he loves coffee. He roasts his own beans. He has an espresso machine in the basement of the Stowe Craft Gallery and often makes cappuccinos and espresso for staff and visitors. You might not have known that Stephen also likes Tequila (it magically gives you no hangover, right?). So, it’s no surprise that Stephen has a killer margarita recipe that is perfect for Cinco De Mayo festivities. (more…)
