OTF WITH PHD IN NH AND VT
Brattleboro is close to the capital cities of Albany, New York to the west and Hartford, Connecticut to the south. Amtrak offers a train service from Washington DC, though New York's Penn Station to the northernmost part of Vermont (stopping in Brattleboro) aptly called "The Vermonter" offering one way fares from New York as low as $50. Winter offers excellent nearby ski resorts, spring, summer and fall are perfect for hikers, campers and outdoor enthusiasts. If you are a camping enthusiast, contact the Brattleboro KOA by calling (802)254-5908.
As is the case with just about every antique expedition I head out on, I set out with a list of items I need and rarely find them. Instead, I happen upon other treasures like the vintage barware I found at the Melamine Cup for a client in Manhattan, eighty year old blue-glass mason jars I turned into lights for an outdoor kitchen and Eames school chairs I bought in Brattleboro and shipped to San Diego for a mid-century city home.
The key to this great area is to allow yourself to check in and check-out, enjoy the incredible scenery, wonderful people, delicious food and fun shopping!
