I would just like to tell everyone how amazing this place is.  Their treats are small and reasonably priced, which allows you to try out a few flavors without having to decide on just one big cupcake.  They also give you a free cupcake if you buy a glass of wine or heady topper.

8. Common Deer

What I love about this store is the little things they sell. They sell great blankets and linens, but I love the little pieces of jewelry and homewares.

9. The Crystal Cottage of Vermont

This is one of the most inspiring stores in Burlington. They have genuine crystal and their owners are extremely passionate about their store.

10. The Green Life

The reason I walked into this store was because they had a sign outside which said “Organic Mattress” and I had to find out what made a mattress organic. Aside from the mattress, this store sells something for everything. From shatterless wine glasses to onesies.

11. Burlington Records
