My personal favorite is Northshire bookstore in Manchester, VT. It’s about 40 min north of Bennington. They have two stories of bookly magic and a great cafe upstairs. Check them out http://www.northshire.com/
Hi! Lucky you, our bookstore just went online this year and has a few different tshirts, sweatshirts, hats and other things available for online purchase. When I got in, I had to call the bookstore and order a sweatshirt over the phone. Or rather, my mom did as a surprise for me. And then ordered herself two sweatshirts and a hat. So guess who has the most Bennington swag in my household?
