KATHERINE'S FAVORITE STORES: COMMON DEER, which carries American-made home
goods. “You feel and know that each item was carefully chosen and displayed,” says Katherine Tucker. “Supporting small merchants and artists is important to us, and coming here, you have the best selection.”
PHOENIX BOOKS, a local indie bookstore with branches in Burlington, Essex, Rutland and Chester. “In a time when you see a lot of online shopping, we love supporting this shop. And if they don’t have a book, they will order it for a quick delivery,” says Tucker. “Plus, there is something comforting in being able to walk in, see the books in person and feel them in your hand.”
“If you walk into Expressions, you will most likely see all of us wearing shoes purchased at DEAR LUCY,” says Tucker. “Their staff is helpful, knowledgeable and accommodating, and they have a great selection of comfortable and stylish footwear that lasts from season to season.”
