About The Vermont Book Shop

In the spring of 2007, Becky and Chris Dayton bought 38 Main Street and embarked on a bold, but historically sensitive renovation. While the appearance of the store changed dramatically, the Daytons retained the shop's loyal staff and set about to rehabilitate the building's lovely historical features. Layer upon layer of drab paint was stripped from every possible surface to reveal warm brickwork, locally quarried marble, hand-carved oak woodwork, and a spectacular tin ceiling.

Today the Vermont Book Shop is poised securely between its historic past as Robert Frost's favorite bookstore and its future, which while not yet known in a rapidly changing economy and technological landscape, holds the promise of a civic-minded, committed young family at its helm.
