New England General Stores
Nothing screams QUAINT more than a New England general store. They are sprinkled across New England and they share many similar features. Even if you don’t need anything specific, it’s worth stopping in for a peek.
Our favorite is the Old Country Store, in Moultonborough, New Hampshire. It has been a store since 1781…237 years! Located near Castle on the Clouds and close to Meredith, and it’s a great stopping point when you’re headed towards the White Mountains. My girls beg me to stop in every time we drive by.
This is the number 1 reason they want to stop…good old fashion penny candy…and who can blame them?
But there are so many cute New England items to browse:
Locally-made wooden bowls and boards
Mugs with…what else…loons, bears, and moose
And plenty of unusual things to look at
